2014 is over and done! We saw the end of the All Out War arc, a time jump, some awesome new faces, and an insane 17 issues (119-135)! Zac, our community manager over at our Facebook page, helped create some polls to see what you guys think was tops in 2014. Here they are!
Cover of the Year
Character We’ve Missed the Most
Character We Want to See More of in 2015
Villain of the Year
Character of the Year
Fight of the Year
Shock of the Year
Moment of the Year
Awesome polls! 2014 was a massive year for the walking dead! I hope this year can top it! ^0^
Good stuff, first poll I think I’ve ever enjoyed…..lol
negan is love. negan is life
I really thought all the voting percentages were very understandable, EXCEPT “What character we want to see more of” LMAO… EUGENE?? That was SHOCKING! Lol, don’t get me wrong I thought the story through out 2014 was seriously some of the best! but EUGENE PEOPLE!! lol Can’t wait for all that will unfold in 2015!!
Ugh! So good! Voting on some of these brought me back man, what a great year for twd, super happy i got to enjoy it and will continue into this year, only two days till “found”!!!!!!
Looks like Negan owned the year
You switched the covers for 125 and 126…
Love this kind of stuff! So much happened in a year!
How come Gregory isn’t the best villain? He’s the only villain that makes you despise him like all villains should. Gregory is a perverted, sleazy, cowardly, back-stabbing, sexist, scumbag of a person. Those are the qualities that make a true villain 😉
Hahaha you know i never thought of that, he is a piece of shit and deserves a taste of the shovel too but negan won my vote, the most respectable (like that shit with holly) but ruthless as beans and ive never wanted a death so bad, i still feel sour hes alive but a character that legit cant just be tossed aside, plus i still get to hate him in jail so im down, i hope he never escapes
I know Gregory’s fresh in your mind but he can’t stand bat-to-bat with Negan!
Gregory must DIE!!!! Negan has an appeal factor, Gregory doesn’t. That in my mind makes him a better villain. That or he is a person I despise with every inch of my body.
I see Gregory as a wuss… “villain” is too powerful a word for him. In fact, I imagine these hillbillies rising up while Gregory conveniently finds himself tucked away somewhere out of sight. He’s nothing but hot air… a threat to the bottom of Maggie’s shoe.
Let’s just wait and see if he succeeds at overthrowing Maggie. Then we can say whether or not he’s a villain MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
I don’t have all that much faith in Maggie, but Carl on the other hand…
Meandering restrictions are killing my convo! Ugh!
Id gave to agree with govphil on the negan comments and the bit that old greg will be elsewhere during the uprising, but i personally think mags has gotten alot harder after AOW and i really want her to prove it, shes never been suuuper confrontational but she also used to smile, and a girl who wont smile usually ends up setting he standard of not to be fucked with, ive seent it!
MaximumParty, I hope you’re right about Maggie. I was disappointed that she let Gregory get away with that scumbag remark!
More of: Aaron
Villian OTY: Negan
Character OTY: Jesus
Fight OTY: Dante
Shock OTY: Dwight’s bolt / Negan lives (tie, but I voted Negan)
Moment: Rick tricks Negan
Shock of the year was missing Abraham and Glenn’s death. I don’t read the comics but from reading the summaries those were 2 jaw dropping moments to me.
Those were both in 2012, agree they were huge moments though
*Don’t read the comics lol Alexandria safe zone bombardment was crucial
Awesome polls. For me, the best fight/battle was Jesus vs. The Whisperers.
Dante vs. the Whisperers.
Gregory’s slimy little comeback plan.
Those are my votes!
With so many post AoW issues, it almost feels like that arc was from a prior year.
I don’t think we should count Negan out yet. His energy is too powerful to stay in jail forever. If people can break out of crazy secure prisons, I think Negan can escape his house jail.
Cover Art: 128
Also really liked 120, but I think 128 would look best on display.
Seems like a decent guy, maybe he’ll come to Carl/Maggie’s defense if Gregory goes after them?
Just because this year did include a majority of AOW, post-AOW: Whisperers.
From the hell of AOW to his idea of civilization coming to fruition to his short-temper with dude who let some walkers into a “safe” area – interesting developments.
Fight: Carl vs. Bullies
The panels showing Carl’s face full of rage and then his doe-eyed look as he mutters “I think I killed them.” just blew me away in a way that not even Rick’s sneaky knife-to-the-throat (or cracked knee – ouch) did.
Shock: Negan’s Life Is Spared
Simply did not expect Negan to live past issue 126. Pleasant surprise.
Moment: Rick Tricks Negan
Okay yeah, Negan’s sudden epiphany being interrupted by a knife to the jugular was pretty satisfying. Big “HELL YEAH” moment.
It a shame that Glenn isn’t on the fave riots characters. I was soooooo pissed when Glenn died. Fuck negan
Awesome poll. I voted in line with the favs except for the best fight. For some reason, I loved Carl’s beat down of the trailer trash boys.
