Thought I'd start an official review thread. Would have done it yesterday but things were a little busy.
Anyway, I thought this was a decent issue. mostly dialogue, but we're beginning to see what the people of the Commonwealth are like. Glad we finally got to meet Stephanie. It seems like they have some pretty strict rules or even laws about how things are done. It also sounds like, as someone theorized last month (Madam Scorpius?) that the Commonwealth might be made up of several communities. It seems as though they have an actual functioning government and the way that Pamela Milton (aka Governor 2.0) described it seems to be the case. This seems like its going to be bigger than anything Rick & Co have encountered before. In Rick's eyes I'm sure it would be seen as an enormous threat, but I don't get the feeling these people want conflict with other people unless their hand is forced. Obviously there were some hints at some drama that will probably unfold, probably something sparking Princess to flip out a la one of the upcoming covers. The other interesting thing was that Maxwell guy "interviewing" the crew about their previous lives before "The Fall" as he put it and selected Michonne since she seemed to have the most prestigious or professional career as a lawyer. Maybe because the new Governor only wants to talk to smart and educated people? I mean Eugene is pretty smart, but apparently a high school science teacher wouldn't do, haha. And then the ending, two happy cliffhangers in a row? What the hell Kirkman? I'm glad that Michonnes daugher, Elodie is alive and well and what kind of stories we will see moving forward with that. Next month it looks like we get to meet this Officer Mercer guy.
I'd give this issue a 6/10.
