Series: Book 21 of The Walking Dead
The Good: The war ends in a surprising twist not everyone will love. I'm not sure I love it, really, except that it's surprising and 21 volumes in, surprising is always good. Negan facilitates a few surprises of his own, chiefly bringing some good, old fashioned biological warfare into the mix. More than anything, the best thing about this volume and the war being over is that we are left with more than one community to build from. The future of The Walking Dead has something it has never had before, a real society - beyond a small community of a few of Rick's people. Varied towns where things don't work exactly the same. Society will have the ability to finally, really begin rebuilding into something normal.
The Bad: Not a thing.
