The Walking Dead #127: Where’d All The Time Go?
The Walking Dead #127 is aptly titled; A New Beginning. By the end of All Out War, we see Maggie take leadership of The Hilltop, the loss of Shiva the tiger, and Negan defeated. Much has changed since the last issue, and much time has past. I myself suspect that around 2 years have passed since the end of the war. Many new survivors have moved in, and many new resources have been made usable again by the survivors. Which gives them, among other things, a plenitude of plants to forage from. Our characters have changed quite a bit as well. And that’s as detailed as I would like to get with this issue, as it marks a large turn for the series. I just feel to strongly about this title to write a revealing review for the fans. A feeling of peace has settled in, and it seems that Kirkman just might let it remain calm for a while before bringing the fury again. (Which I predict will be the death of Rick Grimes…just sayin’) If you don’t know already, I’m a huge fan of Kirkman’s writing. This title and Invincible are two of my favorite monthly series I read. So, I’m very curious with where he’s going with this new arc. The writing in this issue, as always, doesn’t disappoint. I really dig Charlie Adlards pencil work. It’s very consistent, and remains one of my favorites to this day. But, Kirkman’s writing isn’t the only reason I’ve stayed with this title since issue #1. Although Adlard didn’t start penciling the series until #7, the writing helped keep me around, as I usually jump ship when they start changing the creative team around. So, it only took me an issue or two to get over it, and I found that I liked Adlard’s work as well.

A big note to you folks that haven’t started reading this title yet, and stumbled upon this article, or do read it and want to get your friends addicted; this is a great jumping on point for anyone! Things are totally different coming into #127. It almost feels like a different book, because so much time has past and are group is quite different now. Thanks for reading my review folks, I hope you liked it!
