And with another day comes another issue of The Walking Dead, this time 172. Things happened in this issue. Let's talk about them.
So we head back to the group of Michonne, Eugene, Princess (who's just as quirky as ever), Siddiq, Magna, and Yumiko. Thins are pretty much the same over there, we get a few more moments with Kirkman trying to establish more of Princess while seemingly making her worse and worse with every passing second. Manga and Yumiko have a discussion on sexuality in the Apocslypse for whatever reason, and it quickly leads to Yumiko announcing to the entire group that they are very gay. Cue Princess talking sboutmhow some of her best friends were gay.
We see how each community is coming along. The kingdom is helping Hi…Read more >
Well, it seems that we are finally close to the ending. At SDCC this year, Kirkman said that he both has an ending in mind, and that he is now actively leading the story towards this finality. There is no official date on when to expect the final issue, but the end can only be so far away now.
It has been the opinion of many that the comics have taken a slump in quality lately, with poor reception of many of the new things here. This includes the Whisperers as a whole, as well as the direction they have taken both Rick and Negan's characters. So what do we think?

Throughout the six seasons of AMC’s The Walking Dead, there have been both positive and negative responses to the way certain aspects from the comics have been adapted. In this blog, however, I wish to look specifically at Eugene Porter, and why I personally think he is the worst adaptation the show has given us (and yes, that means worse than Andrea). Now Eugene is my favourite character in the comics, so it only felt fair to discuss just how badly he was adapted.
Part I: Origins of The Character
Both versions of the character were introduced in the same way, travelling with Abraham Ford (another bad adaptation, but a problem for another day) and Rosita Espinosa. They are travelling with the mission to get Eugene to Washington due to the…

Hello, BROOKLYN RAGE! here, or Adam. Today I will be discussing deaths I think could have been done better, comics and TV. I will also say what my ideal death would have been for the character,
Dale (TV) - This is easily arguable due to the actor himself. I thus understand why this death had to happen, but I would have liked his death to be the same from the comics.
Oscar - I liked this prisoner. He refused to show weakness even when facing death, understanding what Rick and the group had to do. Thus, his death felt cheap. I probably would have kept him until Season 4. From there, he would have replaced Zach's death. This could have made fan's opinions of Bob interesting. Very kind but caused one of the group's edeath, and as he is …Read more >
