    I'd love to be a walk on zombie in the show.

    I have been able to pick out just about all the characters in that cover. Pretty sweet, but not so much if I am right about who I think is to the right of Rick's boot:cry

    I read the comic in trade format so I'm a few issues behind until they release the next one so I'm a little scared to really check it out in detail in the event someone bites it that I haven't read yet.

    Who? I can't make out any details.

    Does kinda suck that the prominent character in the foreground dies.

    Michionne. You can see what appears to be her hooded to the right of his boot.

    Ugh....good catch....or bad catch....depends.

    I would say that this cover is some kind of metaphor but there is one obvious character missing from the pile.

    I believe that. That would take too much prep work for every scene Rick is in for the rest of the show's lifespan. It also makes it a lot more difficult for him to shoot zombies. Having a comic book character deal with it is one thing, making an actor adapt and still do his job is different.

    Also, I think T-Dog will be the one losing his hand. I think Merle will be the one cutting it off. Eye for an eye.

    Well then that's Glenn on the left of his leg. I don't think that's them. Well...I hope not. I don't see Michonne getting axed. She's too strong of a character and too careful.

    Hope your right. Also I don't think we will ever see Rick loose a limb. Kirkman has said repeatedly that it was a mistake to do that in the comic. I hope to see the cannibal plot line play out.

    It's a shame that so many characters have met their end earlier in the series than in the comic as there are so many great things that could be done from as mentioned the cannibalism to the assault from the governor...
    seriously can't wait for it to return!!!

    That is the main reason why I am enjoying that the series is only loosely based on the comic. I'm hopeful that some characters will not make an exit.

    You know, I'm going to add my two cents here about the cover.

    You guys have to understand that covers are meant to draw in the audience. I can tell you I've got quite a few comics that have covers that really don't show up in the comic. For example, from The Walking Dead, I have read Book 1 (which has Volumes 1 and 2, which covers the Atlanta and Hershel's Farm stories). But I have never seen any panels in the comic in the first volume that looks exactly like this, or this, or even this. Though they're close, they're not exact.

    My point is that the covers don't always spoil what's happening in the story, sometimes not even exactly like it is in the comic and sometimes don't even feature what's in the story. I cite another post-apocalyptic comic series, Crossed, where each cover has those who are Crossed committing horrific crime and acts of violence that are not even seen in the story. When it comes to the character of Rick, I think the cover itself reflects his emotional state. It's not only the weight of those in his group that has died that haunts him, but those that are still alive in his group dying as well, as well as the enemies of the story that haunt him as well. I think this cover just reflects his pain for those who have lost their lives (in more ways than the obvious) due to this situation and the fear of losing those who are still alive with him.

    Of course, I could very well be wrong in my interpretation or opinion. For all we know, the cover could be an up-front, "This is gonna happen" image.

    True, however in that cover we do see many of the people that have died so far. As far as my speculation on the major character...it has been a very long time since that person wore an outfit like that, so it could be someone else or simply a tease that will never happen. Also lately, some of the covers are matching up to what happens in the comic.

    We will see.

    Probably. Even if they lock him in a cell, he'll somehow get out.

    I agree with the masses now. At first glance there was something i thought seemed off, but i like it now.

    As for Carl, i'd be fine with the bullet to the eye ;)

    'The Walking Dead' first look of Danai Gurira as Michonne | Inside TV | EW.com

    Kirkman says, “The essence of the character — her personality, her motives, everything that makes Michonne — remains intact from the comics. But like a lot of things on the show, there will be little tweaks and differences here and there. We saw that her introduction is slightly different from how it was in the comic, and her interaction with Andrea is really going to be a really cool addition to the character that I think will get television viewers up to speed, and they’ll get to know her a lot faster than comic book readers did.”

    “We looked at a lot of talented people that were really fantastic, but we were waiting for that one spark, that moment where everyone was completely in agreement and completely excited, and we felt like we had found the essence of this fictional character that just randomly appeared in another person, and that person was Danai Gurira. She kind of came in and really just blew us all away. She’s got incredible presence, and she’s got a theater background, and is very physical, and was just perfect for the role.”

    I noticed the picture, but I saw your link after I posted the quotes. Along with the picture, I just wanted to highlight Kirkman's words about the role and the actress.

    The comics are infinitely better than the tv show.

    The comics are much better than the TV series, and obviously the plots and characters are much more developed due to the the comics long running nature.
    But I do think the TV series has captured some of the essence of the comic.

    Being in the UK I am only part way through season 2 but am enjoying it, and already looking forward to season 3.

    Ah great I may have to give the comics a go :D although I ain't read a comic in a while. What number would you recommend me going too? As I don't want to read any spoilers that will be in the tv series.

    Thanks Amanda :)

    I'd recommend reading the first 2 volumes if you'd prefer not to read any spoilers before Season 3. There are currently 16 volumes.

    Now the real question is are you going to be able to stop yourself from reading past volume 2. The comic is pretty addictive.

    I was not able to stop myself, but I enjoy both the show and comic for different reasons. Books will also be better, but the show picked up and by all accounts this new season should be banging!

    Our first glimpse of David Morrissey as the governor from The Walking Dead season 3. He looks nothing like the comics.
