Review:
Negan is definitely one of the most interesting characters. He has such a loud personality, yet, he is also not as stupid as we would like to think he is. He has charisma, and a way of knowing how to get what he wants through manipulation. I like how he is able to evoke strong emotions, especially anger, and causes Alpha to react. However, he also does not get killed for being annoying, because he also has merits to him for keeping him alive. In these issues that are leading up to the coming war, it is very interesting to see how the developments from this act of war will transpire.

The communities have really grown and become impressive. The technological advancements are very obvious to see. Carl is wanting to learn a trade to be a blacksmith, but that would mean he would leave from Alexandria and go to the Hilltop instead. Carl makes trips to visit with Negan at night and talk to him, but he still wants to kill him.

Welcome to Feature Friday!


I love the symmetrical design of this. I think it would fit well against a wall, but also as a room divider as well.
What do you think?

I think this has an interesting design. I think this would be a great display shelving unit, but also, could fit in an office with the wood design.

I am a big fan of Tetris, and I definitely would love this shelving unit. The colours on this would fit well in a kid's playroom, but with other colour options, it could be customized to fit anywhere.
