The Walking Dead Discussion (spoilers)

#1 Posted by Acheron (1458 posts) - - Show Bio

I searched for this and I can't believe it hasn't been made!

The place for whatever random discussion you have for the great series TWD. Who are your favourite characters? Favourite issues? Most shocking moment to you?

I just gotta say, I read the whole series in succession. At the end of the prison battle....damn. Some of the most unexpected and shocking moments I've ever seen in comics.

so you're up to date on the series in less then a week?  good job....it's a great series....one of my favorite titles....my favorite moment so far is when they had the zombie tied up in the prison yard and were doing some research on it and the suicidal girl (forget her name) walks up to it and says "i hope you like me" and lets it attack her....my jaw dropped....i kind of wish something good would happen to rick and carl for once instead of the constant $hityness that is there lives now but then i guess the book probably wouldn't be as great as it is

Oh yeah, Carol I think. I did NOT see that coming, especially since she seemed to be getting herself together after trying to kill herself the first time. I can't believe she'd do that do her kid, cripes.

I think the biggest shock for me was either when Carl got by Otis early on (I REALLY THOUGHT HE DIED!), or when Lori got killed. Damn, that was horrible. The governer killing Alice while calling her a "bitch" pissed me off, although he got what came to him.

Yeah, I hope Rick and Carl get a break. I'm sort of thinking maybe they'll be safe for a while in DC, but I dunno. They are messed up lately.

The 'Fear The Hunter" issues of the series look really good. Its supposed to be like issue 48 only multiplied into 5 issues. Great stuff

 For most shocking, you could hardly beat the entire late 40s run.  My daughter also read them all in a week.

 I need to catch up on the series. Last issue I read was when the group was heading to Washington, and they got attacked by those bandit/raider guys, and Rick brutally killed a few.

you aren't really that far behind...they're still on their way to Washington but Dale was captured by the people who have been hunting them

I'm really actually nervous about what's going to be waiting for them once they get to Washington...I mean with all the crappy stuff that's happened so far I don't know how Kirkman can possibly top it and maybe we'll find out if the plague is isolated to North and probably South America since the 2 are connected and all or if it's a worldwide plague

NOT DALE!

Ahh damn. What about the soldier dude? How is he doing? Ever since he's been introduced, I've expected him to die in a sudden and shocking manner, since he's one of the most combat-proficient characters in the cast.

soldier dude is still alive...they met up with a preacher who has been hiding out in his church since the plague started and he took them back to his church for shelter while they search for Dale...everyone that's been with them recently is still alive

Wow, I was really expecting at least one of them to have died by now. I'm sort of relieved to hear that!

#23 Posted by danhimself (21901 posts) - - Show Bio

what did you think?  I love how Carl is the most sane person out of all the survivors...he quickly became my favorite character
#26 Edited by ViciousCesar! (2310 posts) - - Show Bio
@danhimself: pretty good.... i can't believe the priest guy tried to get rick and co kicked out! what an unappreciative jerk. i hope he gets eaten soon... seemed like rick kinda lost it there for a while. he even pulled the phone back out. lol. glad carl was there to give him a reality check... that guy pete got what he deserved, just wish it would have been sooner... seems like those guys that glenn and heath spotted might be up to no good. can't wait to see how it plays out... and i enjoyed the bonus alien stuff from issue 75. 
#27 Edited by ViciousCesar! (2310 posts) - - Show Bio

new issue yesterday. anyone else pick it up?

#28 Posted by danhimself (21901 posts) - - Show Bio
@ViciousCesar!:  you know I did ... great issue as always....I think I'm getting stir crazy though....issue 80 just can't come fast enough....I also want them to double the issue size...that's just me being greedy though
#29 Posted by ViciousCesar! (2310 posts) - - Show Bio
@danhimself: double issue would be great! i'm finally caught up and hate that i'm only gonna get to read 1 issue at a time from now on unless i take a break. =(
#30 Posted by danhimself (21901 posts) - - Show Bio
@ViciousCesar!:  a lot of people wait for trades but I'm pretty sure that I couldn't do that
#31 Posted by ViciousCesar! (2310 posts) - - Show Bio
@danhimself: i was considering doing that. but i'm too addicted to wait that far in-between getting my fix. lol
#32 Posted by danhimself (21901 posts) - - Show Bio
@ViciousCesar!:  same here...there's no way that I could wait that long
#33 Posted by Joeybagad0nutz (1378 posts) - - Show Bio

It should be on there. Usually when I asked my comic store owner to add something to my list he does. Might have forgotton. I'm still upset though lol.

It was an incredible issue, and after what happened in issue 85 I can't wait for issue 86. I started reading the comic just a couple of weeks ago, and it has become one of my favorite series.

#39 Posted by danhimself (21901 posts) - - Show Bio

wow that last page of issue 87 makes me want to cry

#40 Posted by danhimself (21901 posts) - - Show Bio

I KNEW IT!!!! I saw that coming like 3 issues ago!!!!
