I'm not sure if I'm on the right track with this, but shouldn't characters who haven't appeared in Issue 127 but are still labeled "alive" be listed as "unknown" for the time being (because of the two-year time-skip), at least until they appear again, are stated to be alive by another character (as was the case with Maggie, Earl, Mikey, and a few others), or are confirmed by Robert Kirkman to be alive (as was the case with Gabriel)? While I understand that it would be somewhat unusual that the death of an important character would go unnoticed, but I feel that two years is a lot of time for someone to die, be mourned, and have everyone else ulitmately move on. Some characters I feel may need to have their statuses reverted to unknown include:
-The Carson brothers
Thanks in advance for any consideration and critique you can offer!
