Reviews The Walking Dead, Vol. 29

  • Sam Quixote
    Ah, the reliable roller-coaster of quality that is The Walking Dead! After the spectacular rush of Volume 28 comes the expected long, tedious build-up to the next bit of excitement with table-setting being the order of the day in Volume 29: Lines We Cross. Seriously: barely anything happens. Characters rebuild their homes, some grouse at others, they sob, they stick a few zombies, and that’s it for a good 75-80% of the book. Here’s the wafer-...

    I feel like a great volume of TWD needs action, character & story development, drama, conflict, suspenseful moments and great artwork. This volume packed in so much of the good stuff, I loved it. Every time I feel like the story might be slowing down or too many characters are dying or that this comic can't surprise me anymore, it proves me wrong. What drives this comic is the characters. Characters who are struggling internally and characters wh...

    This has been one of my favorite Walking Dead volumes in a while. A few recent volumes felt like not too much happened. This one was packed with multiple story lines, new characters, big changes for old characters, and cliffhangers galore.I am excited to see where the story is going to go next. I had been thinking that it was moving toward conclusion, but now there are so many possibilities, I cannot imagine it ending any time soon.What was inter...
  • Chad
    A slower, transition volume after the action packed last couple of trades. Has some interesting moments but I find Rick the least interesting character in this book. He's going a little nuts like he did after Laurie died. The Pittsburgh issue was interesting although I wasn't sure it was Pittsburgh until the end of the issue when it's finally mentioned. The issue with Negan and Maggie was good as well. But this book suffers through its highs and ...
  • FanboyBen
    Coming hot off the heels of back-to-back nonstop rides that were Volumes 27 (“Whisperer War”) and 28 (“A Certain Doom”), we were about due for a slower “The Walking Dead” arc, which is exactly what Kirkman and artist Charlie Adlard give us with Volume 29. Thankfully, unlike other gradually-paced arcs that the series has given us, Volume 29 never feels like it’s purposefully dragging its feet narratively or prolonging “big” event...
  • Red Panda
    I absolutely loved this volume of TWD. There was action in abundance, heaps of horror, a wealth of woes (poor Rick) and I almost felt sorry for that son of a bitch Negan in the final issue collected here.Almost.I can't wait to see what's coming next, particularly with Eugene's party...
  • Antonio
    I've been some months without reading TWD comics. I must say I had thought I haven't missed much. However, the world of our characters did get a lot bigger. In this volume, we have an interesting new character who called herself The Princess. Finally someone who still got some sense of humor. I know it is the apocalypse and stuff, but come on, guys, we could use some more laughing in these dark days.Furthermore, Robert Kirkman presents us with so...

    Zašto i dalje čitam TWD? Možda zato što sam pročitao sve brojeve do sada (ima ih 174!), od kojih su neki ostavili snažan utisak, pre svega zbog svojih opisa čovekove prirode. Na šta smo sve spremni kada nas zombi (ili češće neki drugi čovek) satera u ćošak? Pojedini odgovori su bili itekako brutalni, ali ovom stripu se već odavno istupila oštrica, baš kao i seriji. Mislim, uspeli su i Negana, motherfucking Negana da obesmisle. Pr...
  • Shadowdenizen
    3.5 stars.My history with this title (and my feelings about it) are complex.While I do think it's been consistently better than the failing TV show, it's not nearly as good as something like Kirkman's own "Invincible" which is superior in every way (Go check it out- I'll wait.)This title goes thru Ups and Downs for me: like the show, my biggest beef is that both title and show lack a defined focus and overall move towards an endpoint. And both ti...
  • Chris Lemmerman
    One of the quieter, downtime arcs of The Walking Dead, which makes sense after the Whisperer 'War' and the last volume.Honestly, I'd really be fine if they killed Rick off at this point. He's the least interesting of a vast cast of characters, and I think it'd be a good way to shake things up. I'd also like less Negan, but I'm probably in the minority there. That said, the last issue of this volume is entirely devoted to him and it's actually pre...
  • Koen
    Great volume for two reasons: - old character Negan ;)- new character Princess! :D
  • Dimitris
    It's ok.Good stuff happen towards the end.Boring stuff here and there.Rick is being NOT Rick still.New character (cover) (as you cans see I don't even remember her stupid name) is fucked up beyond all repair. It's like Kirkman is bored with the series and don't know what to do, so he's going to drop a bunch of trend-related lines, talk about gay couples and whatnot, racial stuff too, and since all of that shit are what the internet is so obsessed...
  • Juan
    I found that I liked two major things from this volume. It was enough for me to rate this 5 stars.The first thing I loved is the introduction of a new character, Princess. So I read this volume as individual issues so I had to wait each month for the story to progress. The arrival of Princess was so well done and she is so friggin hysterical while taking into consideration why she is the way she is.My second point is the more important one for me...
  • Angie
    Nothing really happens in this volume. We do get introduced to a new fun character, Princess. Can't wait to see what she does in the story. A few interesting things happen. Everyone heads out to find out who Eugene has been talking to on the radio this entire time. But of course that actually isn't revealed until the next volume. There was one funny part where Jesus runs into a Whisper and they scream out something funny. Even though in the TV sh...
  • Quentin Wallace
    3.5 StarsThis is one of the "rebuilding" volumes that come between the more action oriented volumes. That being said it came across as a little slow with a lot of talking heads and not much else. But still, it's character development and this series is based on character development. Also, it's the volumes like this that give the other volumes so much weight, since you feel like the characters are real people. I still don't like this whole "redem...
  • Cassie-la
    ORIGINALLY POSTED: uneven and pretty slow arc, the 29th volume of The Walking Dead comic suffers slightly from a few snoretastic issues. Thankfully, a brand-new character named the Princess arrives to shake things up. To make matters better, the entire collection ends with a huge emotional bang 74 issues and five years in the making. Promise.
  • Robert
    Moody Rick still drags down the entire book. The new character seems to be written like a sitcom neighbor - nothing beyond 'quirky'. Carl would be viewed just as badly as his father if it wasn't that he is better than his TV representation at least. Negan is once again the only figure that redeems the work and makes it barely readable.
  • Jessica
    Sigh. I just don't know. I realize the set up volumes are never as exciting because that isn't the intent. But this just felt out of place. Maybe it was the addition of Princess? In this grim world of death, decay and silence, it has become off-putting to witness someone who can't stop talking. So maybe I am more impressed with this one than I thought? I mean Kirkman threw a curve ball and while it felt wrong...It was supposed to. We have followe...
  • Craig
    Another strong sequence from the comic (which is far better than the TV show at this point). I love these "down times" between major arcs, as the people of the various settlements just focus on living and getting things fixed up and back in order. There's still a lot going on. Dwight challenges Rick's leadership. A group goes out to meet the people Eugene's been talking to on his radio--they apparently live in Ohio (that's quite the trek). We mee...
  • Nancy
    This was my quickest TWD read ever! This story was definitely a bridge book between the action of fighting the large zombie herd in the last volume and what ever Kirkman has planned next. Lots of little things happen: Rick is still reeling from the devastating death of a loved one, Jesus and Aaron fall in love and a triangle is hinted at between Carl, Lydia and Sophia. Maggie is furious that Negan is on the loose, a spunky new character Juanita i...
  • Emily
    Some interesting turns in this one. I'm starting to wonder if I need to wait until the larger volumes come out before I read on. I don't seem to retain what's in these shorter collections as well. I'm intrigued by the new group, and Princess seems fun. (view spoiler)[ I'm a little bored with Rick and Dwight's drama and I'm worried about the Sophia-Lydia rivalry that's brewing (mainly because I don't know if Sophia will survive it). (hide spoiler)...
  • Kinksrock
    Not much happens in this entry. They are clearly setting up the next plot. A new character is introduced, so we'll see how that goes. I expected a big reveal as to the next group that will either be friends or adversaries, but it is set up as a cliffhanger.
  • Randy
    This is the best volume in a long time. Loose ends are satisfyingly wrapped up, new characters and storylines are introduced, and old characters go in new directions.
  • Melissa
    Just give me a series about Michonne, Magna, Yumiko, and Princess Sanchez traveling the country killing zombies, please.
  • Etienne
    Some news dynamics and characters. Give ma little hope for the future of the series. We'll see...
  • Peacegal
    The zombie action is only peripheral in this one, but the graphic novel does a really good job of exploring the themes of trust, and keeps us guessing with the question of whether a genuine villain can ever completely redeem himself. Volume 29 managed some thoughtful human interaction without leaning on the tropes of gloopy romance or mooning over bayybee that this series too often falls back on. Thank goodness!
  • Patrick McGrady
    This was a transitional issue. It was to be expected after the last 2 issues.Overall enjoyable though. You gotta progress some characters and set up for future issues.Carl seems to be on the same trajectory with his "leader and contributor" role. Although now that he is becoming "the (young) Man", he is having to sort out some lady problems..Negan went through some inner personal / existential issues and after his confrontation with Maggie, he se...
  • Cale
    This volume is a trough in the regular waves of storyline for the Walking Dead - the major action of the previous volume is over and the characters are all trying to recover. Eugene and Michonne are off to find the voice on the radio in my favorite subplot, as we get the over-the-top character of Princess, who injects some humor and liveliness into an otherwise pretty quiet and dour book. And Negan and Maggie have a confrontation that works out u...
  • Sooraya Evans
    Hilltop folks leave Alexandria to start rebuilding. Now there’s awkward tension between Dwight and Rick. Probably thrown there to add some internal conflict to the plot. Rick eventually finds out about Eugene’s secret radio chat. He tasks a small group to meet up with Eugene’s new friend. Both groups agree to meet in a somewhat neutral zone.My feeling is that these are villains as the series is now in need of new antagonists. That short seq...
  • Elaine
    The 29th Volume: Lines We Cross of The Walking Dead is the calm before the storm.Rebuilding of the Hilltop commences. Carl (still alive here!) returns with Maggie. Aaron and Jesus find love! Rick mourns. Negan plants a sunflower! Dwight is considering mutiny. Eugene steps up (as annoying here as he is in the show). Michonne and a group set out to meet a new community but encounter a Princess first. Maggie wants revenge and seeks out Negan.The...
