75. The Walking Dead
Written by Robert Kirkman
Drawn by Charlie Adlard
Published by Image Comics
'The Walking Dead' continues to be one of the most engaging and exciting comics published today, which is no small accomplishment considering it just celebrated its 10th birthday. Robert Kirkman has kept the story moving by raising the stakes and challenging Rick and the other survivors constantly, without ever becoming predictable or cliche. With the first few chapters of 'All Out War' underway, it’s clear the biggest threat in this world is from their fellow man, which makes the story that much more perilous and frightening. Charlie Adlard continues to grow as an artist, bringing the action and emotion home with beautiful line work in every issue; a lesser artist would have a hard time clearly differentiating so many cast members, but Adlard does so with seeming ease. And in terms of attracting new readers, no other book is as important to growing the audience as 'The Walking Dead' has proven to be.
