This question came up on the Dead Rising non-wikia wiki:
Kirkman did tease something about the season 3 premiere as he mentioned that just because Dale died in a different way than his comic counterpart doesn't mean that that death couldn't be in store for someone else:
- "There will be cases where something memorable like that will be displaced and given to somebody else. I'll hint that that actually happens in our first episode back in Season 3 — there's something memorable that happened to a character in the comic is happening in the show in our first episode back and it's not the same character."
In the long-running Image [comic] series, Dale winds up being bitten by a walker, kidnapped by cannibals and having his infected leg cut off and consumed before being set free and dying at Andrea's side.
So what tragic event is Kirkman really refering too?
So What has not happened in television series yet which happened in the comic? Any guesses?
