THEORY 1... So I Was thinking about possible ways daryl and merle could be introduced into the comics... and I thought it would be pretty cool if daryl and merle were there when glenn died, and daryl, feeling terrible about seeing the brutal murder, goes back to find rick's group and joins them. Then He could help them kill Negan.
Theory 2.... Daryl and Merle are on their own like michonne originally was and when they're both going down a highway or whatever when they find the group of dead saviors... and daryl takes the crossbow from dwight's body, because no one knows what happened to that group yet, right?
I really think Daryl will be put in the comics because Kirkman is always telling us one thing but then doing another thing instead
