There are some interesting parts that I honestly enjoyed, but the overall story is so over-the-top silly, it's hard to stay in it. Negan finally finds himself at war with Rick Grimes and his group of survivors. And to say the least, there will be casualties... I like the fact that Kirkman can still surprise me, although i think that he has gotten a little stale with repetitive storylines.
I’m curious to see what happens to Negan as the series progresses, and whether he’ll meet the same fate as the Governor once All Out War comes to an end. Interestingly enough, a comparison could have been drawn between the Governor and Rick. It’s not far fetched to imagine Rick becoming twisted and sadistic like the Governor if something were to happen to his son.
Ever since the Something To Fear arc, it felt like we have been building towards this war. I just expected more to be honest. People keep saying its building up and it will kick into gear in part 2 ( issues 100-114 were all building to this!!! ). I know war is methodical and slow... but I want these characters to show their worth.
In conclusion. The art is fantastic as always. I think its hard to really judge part 1 until we have the whole story... Hopefully part 2 is better... Anyhow, I'm very excited for the last part of All Out War, and what this really means for The Walking Dead.
