    Very disappointed with episode 100.  Wasn’t as brutal as Michonne’s treatment and revenge on the Governor.  Wasn’t as dark as the prison assault.  Over hyped.  Lucille was silly and the cover with all the bodies was misleading and incorrect.  *Spoilers(maybe)*  Carl is in the bodies in the middle.  The one with its head wrapped.

    I totally agree, all of the covers were misleading as there were no zombies, only one I remember. There were much darker moments in Rick’s life, *Spoiler* this is more of a dark moment for the original group of survivors. I was so excited, and this issue really fell flat. I think it could have been so much better. 

  • Actually, *Spoiler* that’s not Carl on the wrap-around cover, that’s Hershel’s son Billy.

  • Shaun Curtis

    Wow, always thought it was Carl…good looking out.

  • Shaun Curtis

     I agree.  Predictable and stupid.  *SPOILER* Oh, yeah, first time i thought about “tomorrow.”  Dead.   He was one of the few characters people could relate to.  He was anti-social and nerdy.  Silly to have him die.

  • CatTim88

    I agree totally. I feel like issue #98 was more shocking. For all of the hype about the road to 100, I’m just pretty sour. Issue 101 and so on better get better, this story arc is not really that great, I mean I want the walking dead I know and love. Not this pitiful excuse for a “monumental” issue. 

  • Shaun Curtis

     Would love to see them move on from Alexandria and actually have to fight zombies again.  Have them need to go into a location and clean it out to get supplies or something…much like shane and otis in the show at the school.  Enough of the human vs human element…its getting old…yes the one with the biggest group and largest weapons wins.

  • Jeff Giacobbe

    Total letdown. There were so many better ways for this story to go but Kirkman opted for a cheap ‘shock’ at the expense of a main character. dumb move….

  • Joseph Ovalle

    I personally thought it was intense, leaving room for further growth, the fact that Kirkman killed off a character is of no news to me, he simply takes who and what he wants as it is his series, i am looking forward to the next issue. I thought issue 100 was very intense.
