Title: The Walking Dead Vol. 23: Whispers Into Screams
Publication Info: Image Comics (2015)
The last volume of The Walking Dead introduced the Whisperers, a group of people who wear skins of the dead so they can walk and live among the undead. In this volume, a girl from the Whisperers is captured and during her captivity, Carl befriends her. Meanwhile, Maggie is facing opposition as leader of the Hilltop community. It’s a nice change of pace to take the focus off of Rick for once. I feel that these issues are kind of dragging their heels for now, but there’s a lot of potential that could be building for the Whisperers’ story. They could become the next group our heroes have to fight a war against (god, I hope not), or there could be a more nuanced story of how these different types of survivors interact.
