This review is from: The Walking Dead Volume 19: March to War (Paperback)
The conflict between Rick and Negan has been going towards full-blown conflict for the last two trades of THE WALKING DEAD, but now, with Volume 19, titles "March to War", it seems like that we were finally going to get the conflict that the fans been clamoring for.
Alas, that is not to be.
This volume is more about character building and a really tense stand-off and some very scary moments for the few remaining members of Rick's original group. Aside from Kirkman's smart writing and Charlie Adlard continuing to do incredible work on this title, the whole thing seems like a bit of a tease to me. The suspense seems to be building for too long, and more than anything, I'm afraid that it's losing momentum. It's almost as if Kirkman likes the idea of Negan and how he out-Governors The Governor in his sheer vulgarity and psychopathy and he just wants him to remain part of this world for as long as he can before giving him (or someone else) up.
Kirkman's big about subverting expectations, but I don't know if drawing this out much longer will help or hurt the flow.
