It’s common knowledge in the 40 Oz. of Horror world that Chad and James approach, consume and review their horror in wildly different manners. Whereas James was poised and ready to devour the new and highly anticipated issue of The Walking Dead, Chad took his time, anxious about what the pages might reveal about the beloved (and be-feared?) characters.
They both marveled at the downright badness of a new villain, whose behavior, they believe, at least rivals that of the Governor.

What are your thoughts on Issue 100? Did it shock you? What are your predictions for the future of the plot?
