Most people, including myself, were expecting some sort of second zombie apocalypse. While this didn’t happen, fans paid one dollar more for 30 uninterrupted well-paced pages that changed everything for Rick and company.

I thought the Governor’s pet zombie girl was the most graphic occurrence in the comics’ history until I saw what happens in this issue. Negan took a life without mercy and didn’t think twice about it as it was all a game to him.
