The Walking Dead Issue 131 – Carl and Sophia Reunited! Review
Alright what’s going on guys it’s Trev back again here to bring you another video. In this one I will be doing my monthly review for this months issue of the walking dead comic book series which is issue 131 called A new journey begins. Finally we get to see Carl and Sophia reunited! I thought this was a pretty touching issue and I am going to give it an 8 out of 10. It’s nice to see all of our characters happy and enjoying life for a change.
Issue 131 is the one-hundred and thirty-first issue of Image Comics’ The Walking Dead and the fifth part of Volume 22: A New Beginning. It was published on September 10, 2014.
Marco yells to everyone that the dead were talking and they have to find Ken. Maggie along with Dr. Carson manage to calm him down. Although she and the others don’t believe the dead were talking, she still sends a group to find the missing survivor.
Meanwhile, Carl runs into Sophia who is standing up for a boy, Brian who is being beaten by two bullies. Sophia accidentally hits Carl in the face and apologizes. After a friendly reunion, Carl asks Sophia where Alex lives, as he needs to deliver a letter to him from Jesus.
Elsewhere, Larry and Louie are showcasing what seems to be some sort of alcoholic drink, and a man named Dante, the one who found Marco earlier, tastes it, remarking that it is very good. Maggie arrives and orders him to go find Ken with a small search party.
Later during the community meal, Earl invites Carl to sit and eat with him and the other apprentice, an invite which he denies, starting to talk about how he moved to Hilltop hoping to become his apprentice, just to find someone else already apprenticing. Earl then smiles, asking “who said I can only have one apprentice?”
Elsewhere, Dante and the two more men ride through the countryside searching for the barn, and Dante talks about his feelings for Maggie, and the small chance he has with her. Eventually they find a barn and discover Ken’s clothes, but before they can properly search for him, they are ambushed by a group of roamers.
After eating, Rick and Maggie have a talk about the past and how everything has changed, and how the world is much more peaceful, and that things are almost better than they were before the apocalypse. Rick remarks that he still misses some of it, also saying he misses Maggie and “even after all this time”, he still misses Michonne.
Later, Carl is moving his bags to the Remington House. When asked by Sophia why there are so many bags, Carl reveals that he’s moving in, which makes her quite happy.
Back at Alexandria after speaking to Eugene about Rosita, and how much she loves him, Andrea is ambushed and confronted by Magna and her group inside her house. They menacingly say she’ll be the one answering questions now.
