Not much to say about the latest issue of TWD cause about 1/3 of the issue was silent. Kirkman and company are definitely pacing themselves as they approach issue 150. I think I read somewhere that Kirkman said he had about 300 issues of story in him, and if that’s true, soon we will be halfway through the series.
In this issue we got to see the reaction of those who lost someone at the hands, or should I say sword, of Alpha. The majority of them wanted revenge, but Rick advised against it, a very unlike Rick response. Has Rick gotten soft? I don’t think so. I think he’s beginning to realize that reacting to violence with violence just gets more of your friends killed. Rick has always been a protector. Before he accomplished protecting people with violence, but now, he’s protecting people by being a bit more passive.
Since Rick doesn’t have a plan to deal with Alpha other than tuck his tail between his legs, it looks like the planning is up to Eugene who is pissed to high heaven. Eugene thinks that he can get revenge by somehow using Alpha’s daughter, but I’m not so sure that’s going to work seeing as how Alpha and her daughter don’t get along.
I have a feeling that by issue #150 someone we know will be wearing the skin of their loved one courtesy of the Whispers. Consume. Review. Repeat. gives TWD #146 a 7 out of 10 Maggie sucker punches.
