Having read WD from almost the very beginninng (jumped on with #13 and quickly got 1st two trades), I was beginning to get a bit jaded. Kirkman hasn't given me a WTF/OMG moment since Carl got shot in the head a few years back. I didn't even flinch when Abraham bought it two months ago.

But that SOB did it again! :shock:

Spoiler: show
He killed off Glenn! And in a pretty horrible way!


And, just like that, there goes one of my favorite characters of the series and my favorite from the show. Kudos, you sick boogledong. You got a solid emotional response from someone who's been reading comics for 30 years.

Not bad. Not bad at all. :twisted:

See, but I like folks like that(I think you do too). Especially those who push the envelope and keep you coming back for more. This kind of hails back to when comic deaths and good writing meant something. Seems the big guns have forgotten about this. Glad the indies haven't :wink:

Kirkman breaks my heart when I least expect it. #100 was no different. It's just amazing to me how invested I am in these characters! I've been lucky enough to be reading since #8 (I should have jumped on with #1 like my LCS owner told me to do!!) and WD is always, always my first read when it comes out.

While I can't say it's always my first read (Aquaman, Batgirl, and Iron Man trump it), it's usually in the top 3.

And yes, I admire the guy for making me care about his characters.

But, dammit, Glenn was my favorite. I believe was introduced in issue 2 or 3, correct? He's been in the book almost as long as Rick!

And man, he didn't go easy. I haven't been that queasy since Michonne was helpless at the hands of the Governor.

Brutal!

And so graphic... and almost scarring... not the actual act or the art of it... but... but the way he tries and then calls for Maggie... even after...

I'm still shivering!

Also I do like the little comments about Rick...

"You're practically invincible!"

I was pretty sad, but almost unphased...like I've become desensitized to the violence in the comics...lol.

I am really curious where it goes from here. You don't "F" with Rick and live to tell about it.

Spoiler: show
I wonder when Maggie gets it? I kind of get a feeling this goes a bit like the whole carol thing at some point. Not sure.



I have a feeling we are about to get an actual war in the zombie apocolypse.

Before the TV series was a reality, Kirkman eluded in an interview everyone dies before the end... however with the series on television I don't know how that current path is going to play out. He made it sound like there is no happy ending for anyone!

Which makes me wonder if what Negan said about Carl is a foreshadow or not? :lol:

Until the zombies are wiped out, I don't see how there can BE any happy endings.

Man it would just become a way of life... the zombie population would dwindle... you have Alligators down in New Orleans and Crocodiles in Florida... just as dangerous but we handle them well. Sure the way they treat their deceased would change but the world would just live with a new classification of species of man. Gun lessons would be mandatory in schools :lol: And you have a new excuse when you're late for work, "Man the zombie pile up was murder... literally!"
