Really not sure about these new style covers. This one in particular looks wrong, with Holly sort of plonked in the middle there. Glad to say that the art inside, with the inks of Stefano Gaudiano giving Charlie Adlards art a bit more polish and a vibrancy, really stands out. It’s like Adlards art has gone from SD to HD.
The art is the highlight of the issue as things begin to heat up in the ‘all out war’. Lots of battles, lots of zombies, and characters being moved to the forefront of the action (Holly, Dwight) who seem to have important parts to play in issue #117.
It zips along, there is nothing to really bog it down, its part 2 of a 12 issue series so its hard to give much more of a review than to say its shaping up to be interesting, but the new art is the highlight here, I really hope this continues beyond ‘All Out War’.
