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 ...
  • Paul E. Morph
    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...
  • Gianfranco Mancini
    The usual transition volume after the action-packed previous volumes of the Whisperers War story-arc just come as scheduled, as slow as expected, with lots of characters development and new ones conveniently appearing to fill holes left by dead ones.(view spoiler)[Juanita Sanchez, the crazy Princess of Pittsburgh is probably going to betray Michonne & co sooner or later, having to wait for months to know fate of Eugene's party in next volume will...
  • Ben Brown
    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...
  • Ryan Buckby
    actual rating: 3.5 This volume picks up after the events of the previous issue and so many of the characters are trying to get back on track to being normal again. Issue 29 is the transition comic and its where not much happens and it's where the characters are just trying to rebuild after some really heavy events that have recently taken place. Plot: this one picks up after the events of issue 28 where everyone came together to take down the m...

    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...
  • Vladimir Ćeha
    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
  • Alondra
    3.5 StarsInteresting, but not much action. We have new connections, attempted connections and attempted murder; none of these things by zombies. This is definitely a calm before the storm, and I am ready.
  • 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...

  • Lesincele Viaja gracias a los libros
    Fantástico. Me ha encantado igual o más que el anterior. Hay muchos sucesos que prometen y muchos momentos de tensión. Eso Si, te deja con muchas ganas del siguiente volumen.
  • 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...
  • Václav
    The TWD walks high. Another excellent book, that I enjoyed very much. Especially that part with Negan, that was very nice. And I'm (maybe) finally getting that "love triangle" between that two girls and that young fella I expected before. And we're getting a new funny character, Commonwealth looks promising, especially with that little cliffhanger and there is just much going on. I'm looking forward to more of that and fearing that I'm finally ca...
  • 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.
  • RJ
    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.
