General Comments

Since issue one, we have been waiting for Titannus to match up with our heroes. This was a solid way for them to all get together to face this new possible threat. Kirkman's writing is steady in this issue and doesn't get too lengthy. He does a good job at keeping it short and to the point.

Overall Rating

This is the story that has been running for almost a year now and is finally going to be wrapped up. Kirkman does a decent job of starting the ball rolling on the ending.
