Comic-Book Readers May Imply Devastation From The Preview Image For This Week's 'The Walking Dead' Episode

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | November 22, 2013 | Comments ()


Spoilers, for comic-book readers, I guess, although it won’t be such a surprise for anyone familiar with the rise of The Governor from the comic books. I haven’t read the Robert Kirkman’s source material myself, but I’ve pieced together enough to understand that the events of the last episode of The Walking Dead with The Governor come, in part, from The Rise of the Governor comic book, and that the Governor plans to attack the prison with a tank. Said attack may end up in the death of a character (which one, I do not know) designed for maximum devastation (for me, as a father, that would be Judith).

That’s all speculation on my part, however.

Here’s the preview image:


Yup, that’s a tank all right. And if you’ve seen the New Zealand promo for this week’s episode of The Walking Dead, there’s plenty more revealing intel to further suggest the prison attack is imminent.

And we were just starting to like The Governor. Hmph.

    Please - kill Officer Saint Rick. I can’t stand him after he threw out Carol like some useless toilet paper. Or Tyrese. So we won’t have to deal with this crying and angry useless ass. Or Carl. No one will miss Carl. Or Maggie and Hershel. I don’t like them anymore after Rick told them he threw out Carol and they were like: "Yeah, whatever. I would do the same. Good boy Rick".

    But I suspect Governor and his crew will conveniently kill off all those Woodbury people who didn’t die from flu. Because who needs them anyway. And I suspect they will kill off Judith. Because what will they do with her now in this zombie world? Specially when our gang will eventually run somewhere again. It’s not like they are gonna grow old in that prison. Producers shouldn’t even let her to be born. Lori should have conveniently have miscarriage.

    Or kill Hershel for same reason. Because he can’t really run from zombies now. Or Luna Lovegood. Because they don’t know what to do with her anyway. Poor thing. Just when we begin to like her a little. And finally - kill off that stupid Governor!!!

    I'm down with Rick biting it.

    I can't lie, as a reader and a fan of the The Walking Dead comic, I have pretty much bailed on the show. I like Norman Reedus as Daryl Dixon, but other than that the changes to the plot have been to radical.

    Maybe it's my fault for not being able to separate the two from each other.

  • Lauren_Lauren

    I'm sure there is an article along with that header image, but all I see is ENVER GJOKAJ.

  • Kim Stephens

    Why is he not everywhere?!

  • Lauren_Lauren

    I know, right? TRAGEDY.

  • Lauren_Lauren

    And it looks like he got taller and . . . torso . . . y . . . er . . . since the last time he was on my television.



  • To return to topic from staring at that...maddening...error in the topic title, at this point anything that gets Our Heroes outta that stupid prison and back on the road will be a good thing. I expect that zombie barricade destruction by tank will motivate them to bug the hell outta there.
    Staying in one place was actually a good thing, character-development-wise; but we've had our breather and now it's time to make like horseshit and hit the trail.

  • bastich

    If you were a reader of the comic, you'd already know that our heroes have started fighting the Alien Zombies at this point, that is actually a Space Tank in the picture.

  • Al Borland's Beard

    Was that before or after the Nazi sharks?

  • bastich

    Before, obviously. Rick & Co. later end up joining forces with the Alien Zombies to fight the Nazi Sharks and their resurrected leader, Hammerhead Hitler.

    This is all covered in the spin-off miniseries "Walking Dead Vs. Ninja Cthulhu".

    Ninja Cthulhu - I would vote for him for President. That would be a short spin-off - like 5 minutes and then WHAM ninja Cthulhu kills everyone

  • Dennis Albert Ramirez

    if all that is true, it would make me happy

  • Al Borland's Beard

    I wasn't starting to like the governor.

  • Idle Primate

    Dustin, you may want to check your word choice in 'imply' and/or the whole structure of the sentence you've written as the title.

  • As Creed would say, you imply, we infer.

  • Yeah, I think you mean infer.

    ...Whaddaya want? Your readers are supposed to be brighter and better-educated than average--you have to expect us to assholily point out your errors.

  • Idle Primate

    I didn't realise I came off assholily. Wasn't the intention. My apologies Dustin.

  • kushiro -

    Some advice: if you're sending flowers, avoid the assholillies.

  • John G.

    you made me laugh out loud from a pun. That has happened maybe 3 times in my life. Well Done!
