The library finally got a copy of The Walking Dead, Volume 20: All Out War Part 1 in stock. Was it worth the wait?

In a word: No!

First, take a look at the title. It says Part 1. Which means nothing much gets resolved and Kirkman is playing the old dithering, meandering game. The one where nothing happens. The plot just spins around on its axis. It’s the same game I play with my wife when she asks me to do some sort of "important" chore around the house.

…I believe in Rick Grimes.

It was odd that the war is easily the weakest part since the introduction of the Saviours.

Maybe because, Negan started to make clumsy mistakes in his strategies against Rick’s group. And you a
Honestly, this was my least favorite book of the series so far. It had its moments, but it felt forced in places. In others I struggled with the artwork and narrative because the story seemed to jump abruptly. I even had to turn back and make sure I hadn't skipped a page a couple of times.

Still good, but not of the same quality as earlier entries. I'm hoping that since it's a "part 1", much of what's lacking will be made up for in the "part 2".
"I know none of us are soldiers..but until this is over...let's keep that to ourselves."

So, Rick basically says, "Mr. Negan, tear down this wall!" When Negan offers up a rather impolite response, it's time for the bullets to start a-flyin' !

Yup, the action heats up quickly in this one.

Rick has a well-thought-out plan. It certainly seems like they stand a chance. But, war is war and there will be plenty of casualties. And it's a strange war indeed when the dead prove to be your allies.

When superhero comics do purely fight stories, they tend to be pretty terrible (like Marvel’s AVX or DC’s Trinity War), but when The Walking Dead does it? Home run!

Maybe it’s because Robert Kirkman’s built up the characters over so long that we now care about them, or maybe it’s because the characters aren’t decades-old superheroes who will never die. Maybe it’s a more tense situation as Kirkman’s shown that he has no issues with taking out major characters to shake up a story.

Or maybe it’s bec

Re-read: December 8th

the war is raging on and things are going to get even more crazy before they start to go back to somewhat of normal in the walking dead universe. some of the Alexandrian's, Hilltop and the Kingdom residents are on the move and ready to take the fight to Negan at his compound and hope to kill him right there and there but of course things never go as plan in true walking dead style.

Well I totally called the returnee's state of return... Though I wasn't sure if it would take place. I thought that would cause the most panic. Sorta right... The grenades were a nice touch.

I actually think that Negan believes his line about being the saviors... That it's not just for show and free stuff. Interesting.

The war rages on... Gotta get back.

This was cool, the war starts and it brings in heavy casualties, they try talking peacefully but it doesn't go anywhere and so its an all out war and its amazing the way its done. Negan vs Rick, their armies, first Rick's men lessen but they are able to overwhelm Negan but then there is interludes both sides getting ready and then Negan attacks with grenades and destroys where they have been living and its epic, human lives are lost but then again this is an all out war now. I like how he deaths ...more
The art is still terrible. Blasé, scrawled during action sequences, generic acting on the faces, and dimly lit.

The action is better - when it's ramping up I'm turning pages fast - partly to get past the garbage dialogue (especially the horrendous bile that comes out of Negan's mouth - no one needs to savour that, no matter how "real" Kirkman tells himself it is, it's still shit coming out of *his* head).

But when the action slows down it's a chore to read - or downright mystifying.

Look, everybody! It's forward momentum in the story! I kid, but only a little. Finally, we have the direct confrontation between Negan and his Saviors and Rick and everybody else. Plenty of action, and plenty of deaths. Of course. Negan remains as frightening and fascinating as before, which is good. I think I may be getting tired of most of the rest of these people. I really hope that this is building up to Kirkman's grand finale on the series, because I'd much rather that he go out explosively ...more

All this war stuff makes you almost forget about, you know, the zombies everywhere.

I've decided that The Walking Dead will probably be my #1 favorite graphic novel series of all time. The storytelling in this is better than most books. This war storyline between Rick and Negan is remarkable. ...more

Holy shit this volume wasn't kidding about the "All Out War" title. This volume was nothing but bloody, insane war. It was action packed and intense and I loved it. I love how fierce Rick is in this volume. H'es finally taking control and being a true leader again. I keep thinking Negan can't possibly get any worse and every single volume is proving me wrong.

I thought Negan was actually a pretty decent guy when he stopped Holly form being raped. That surprised me because I didn't t

You know... I wish this series would just end.


It's pretty rare that I find reading "The Walking Dead" to be a satisfying way to pass the time anymore. Rick et. al. make plans, the plans get fucked up, lots of people die, rinse and repeat. That's it. That is all this series has EVER been, and nothing seems to be changing on that front. Yet, I can't stop checking out the latest volume from the library because I want to know how it ends.

I'm sure it won't have some sort of clea

I think this is my break up volume. I haven't read The Walking Dead in so long and coming back to all that despair is hard. I've read Invincible and to me, that's Kirkman's best work. It had contrast of bright colors and happy-ish storylines to the deep brutality that are also in its pages. This is all just dark. Each chapter's goal is out suck the faith in humanity out of you. I don't even care about the characters anymore. So, goodbye Walking Dead. I will not miss the pain you put me through. ...more

Oh my god, what a rollercoaster of a volume! Negan & Rick are both so smart when it comes to war tactics, they're pretty much level with each other. I was on the edge of my seat for a lot of the issues! I can't wait to read part 2, hopefully it will conclude after more crazy battles. There were a lot of deaths in this volume, which didn't really phase me because Robert Kirkman will kill anyone BUT (view spoiler) ...more

Bullet Review:

At least something is HAPPENING. And Maggie ain't a complete waste of oxygen.

Though Rick is still alive and consistency is for LOSERS. I'm pretty sure Negan was a professional bully in his previous life - or a politician (same thing? ZING!!)

If Kirkman lets Rick live and kills Jesus, THINGS WILL GET UGLY PEOPLE.
I stopped reading these because I was afraid of spoilers for the T.V. show. Judging where the show is going now, I think it's safe to continue. This was a good one! Lots of action and fun comparisons to the show. Can't wait to read the next one!
This is the second war plot the comic has had, the first one being The Walking Dead, Vol. 8: Made to Suffer, and while I really liked the first one, this one is so much better. I really hope the comic can keep up this quality level once this arc is over. ...more

Can the rebellion work? Will all communities stick together? Is Negan funny or what? Is this your favourite character called Lucille? This is it, no more BS, they're going to stand up to The Saviors. It's all out war, and it's going to be hard to find any winners! Another breathtakingly realistic and exciting non-military trained war between two forces, with the added touch of Negan's outrageous humour in the field. 9.5 out of 12.

things were going well at the beginning of the war.. now.. ah.. not so much!
we've lost ALOT of people and one very special characters :'(
everything is in dismay..some have been bit.. some are wounded..
Negan made his final stand with grenades*.. and then left.. saying that seeing the smoke in the distance is proof enough that he won..
where the group goes from here I have no idea..
will they be able to pick up the pieces and push on? I really don't know this time.. are the walls still standing?

Rick and his allies find themselves in an all out war with Negan and the Saviors. So much hangs in the balance of this conflict. Each side will be sure to suffer horrific loses in battle.

After the relative slowness of the previous installment, the action doesn't waste any time kicking into high gear. A number of characters on both sides get taken out, some of who have been around a little while. One thing can be said for certain, though, Negan is one tough customer.
Rick has allied with the Kingdom and another group and they're after Negan and ready to win... but are they ready for the losses they might face?

I felt like this was a realistic battle, where it isn't just one side obviously winning. It's Part 1, so the ending leaves the outcome with a big question mark. Negan continues to surprise me, but I still don't want him to win...
