The Walking Dead, Vol. 29: Lines We Cross (The Walking Dead #29) Reviews
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.
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-thin story we do get: Rick sends out a group led by Mi ...more
I readily acknowledge that this trade paperback is pretty much setting the scene for whatever comes next in the series. For the first time in a while though, so much is up in the air as to where the comics might go. Characters are growing and the focus is on rebuilding. I like these interludes between the action, where we get to see the characters come into their own and can focus, for a moment, on how difficult just living together and getting along with others can be.
As always, I really enjoye ...more
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 who are struggling in regards to relationships w ...more
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!
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 some deep psychological closures of some untied knot ...more
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 unexpectedly. I think Negan is Kirkman's favorite c ...more
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 pretty punchy.
New addition Princess is a breath of fr ...more
