Trade readers, this one’s for you! By now you should have had time to get your mitts on VOLUME 22: A NEW BEGINNING! A LOT goes down in this Volume. If you manage to avoid spoilers, then you must have been a bit shocked when over 2 years had passed since the end of ALL OUT WAR. Any of you manage to be surprised by that or had it been spoiled for everyone?
So Magna and her crew, what do you make of them? Are they acting eeeevil or are they just doing exactly what Rick would have done in their shoes?
Did Rick overreact on the road when that guard was lax on his detail? Is he becoming a true Ricktatorship or was that warranted?
How about Carl heading out on his own (or maybe it’s more like moving one town over where your aunt and the rest of your family live)? Will sparks fly between him and Sophia?
And let’s just get to it: those faux zombies! AKA The Whisperers. What the hell is up with them? We haven’t answered that in the comics yet so your guess is as good as ours!
I love how they manage to give continuity to the history and making all of us wonder what happened with the rest? Mara is acting as rick was acting 3 years back which is extrange or ,is it just evolution? I quite love the fact Negan is alive and you can see as Rick and Andrea are bossing everyone harder than before, I guess they deserve it but can this be a problem in the near future? I love the evolution of Rick and the rest of the people in their personality. I like carl trying to be useful, so far is terrible with his sculptures, way far of michelangelo. I can’t wait for more, and I want to know who really are the whisperers.
So much happened during “All Out War”, I didn’t know what Kirkman would do with this story next. I’m really impressed with what Kirkman has done with the story and I know there is something about Magna he hasn’t revealed yet.
I totally dig magna cause of her big sexy brain, she thinks fast and smart and can act on her toes, def looking foreward to more of them
Just wanted to point out the “two years” is left ambiguous. We don’t know if that’s how long it’s been. It said that in #127’s letter Hacks but Kirkman corrects it in the next. Given Carl seeming to be a young teen, it’s probably been 3 or 4. years. Making him 12 going on 13 or actually 13.
