**** ½ (out of five)

Well, he did have it coming…
This is the issue that fans of this series have both been anxiously awaiting and kind of dreading: Michonne is finally ready to get her revenge on the vicious and cruel Governor of Woodbury.
First the setup: Michonne, along with Rick and Glenn, three survivors in the land where the dead are still up and walking and hungry for flesh, were captured after finding Woodbury. Inside, Rick had his hand chopped off and Michonne was repeatedly brutally raped by the Governor, while Glenn was forced to listen.
Fast forward to issue #33 and you will find the single most violent, shocking and brutal torture scene you’ll ever see in comics.
There’s a sword, a hammer and nails, a power drill, an acetylene torch, pliers and more.
It is truly and utterly horrifying and disturbing and a swift kick in the ass for anyone who’d dare accuse this book of stagnating.
Kudos to Kirkman, Adlard and Rathburn for taking the best horror book on the market up a notch.
