Hey gang! We’re back with our comic comparison after a week off due to SXSW! There’s really just one big event I wanted to focus on here since it’s a doozy as evidenced by the two big-ass images below (click for bigger versions).
RICK TALKS TO DOUGLAS/DEANNA
In the comic this confrontation is all one event (in VOLUME 13: TOO FAR GONE). Rick goes to Douglas (Deanna) and argues that Pete is a danger. I’ve truncated a bit in the comparison but the gist is mostly there for both the comic and the show. The meeting takes place in the makeshift cemetery (in the comic this is the first time Rick sees it), Douglas (Deanna) argues that Pete is the doctor, and Rick kind of decides he’ll do whatever is necessary.
Douglas is definitely less on Rick’s side in this argument than Deanna, who at least seems to consider Rick’s argument and admits that Pete is abusive.
RICK VS PETE
In the comic, Rick talks to Douglas and immediately heads to Pete’s house to kick his ass. In the show about half an episode occurs between Rick’s talk with Deanna and his confrontation with Pete. He also talks to Jessie twice. But once the punches fly the rest is basically STRAIGHT from the comic, with the show fight seeming to be a little more drawn out. Again, here is a slightly truncated comparison:
You can see some direct lifts in both the dialogue and the visuals. Pretty cool!
DISCUSS THIS EPISODE IN OUR RECAP:
Awesome!!! Can’t wait for the Finale!
ROBERT. KIRKMAN. BAM!
I look forward to these panel to screen comparisons! I’m thrilled they are sticking to the comics! Can’t wait to see what next week brings!
What happen with panel for 414?
I will sum it up:
-Abraham, Holly/Francine and Tobin: The scene is similar in both comic and show, but in the comic Abraham kills a couple of walkers and then yells at Tobin like a champion for leaving Holly (and previously other people) behind. In the show, he kills walkers and then he kills more walkers and is not very angry at Tobin. Francine was doing nobody-knows-what up there in that shovel (I don’t know if that’s the proper English word for it). Both Holly and Francine kick Tobin’s ass. A bit later, Abraham becomes the leader of that crew.
-Glenn and his search team: In the show, all Alexandrians are stupid and unuseful and sending a big group is a total danger. In the comic, the team is made by only Glenn and Heath, and they manage to be completely brilliant at their work. At least, TV version showed us with this one that Eugene can be useful.
-Finding out Pete’s abuse: In the comics, it’s quite obvious what’s happening with Pete and his family since Rick and his group put their feet into Alexandria. Comic Jessie’s attitude consists in completely rejecting any questions and being secluded at home, whereas TV Jessie seems to be happy all the time (just until Rick and Carol find out what’s happening). Rick has an entirely proffesional interest about it in the comics, whereas TV Rick also seems to be interested in Jessie as a woman for himself. In both versions, Sam is the key to suspect Pete, but in different ways.
This weeks episode gave me chills with all the similarities, so grateful for these panel to screens so i dont have to hunt it down myself hahaha
Its looking like season 6 before Negan, and Jesus, If the finale has the Herd Attack, then we might get a glimpse of Jesus looking at the place at the end. To make all the non-comic readers wonder who he is. But it looks like Negan is going to wait till Season 6. But then again you never know,, The TV show if full of surprises… like the “Ws” whats that about? Are the Saviors, now the Wolfs? Or are we going to see the Whisperers already? Is Morgan dyslexic and makes his Ms into Ws??? lol… I think not on the Whisperers,, they have not even developed fully in the comic yet. And its not Morgan.. The whole Rick looking at the A on his hand, upside down was a distraction.
This show…this comic…this story is so unbelievably good! It can not be overstated. But what this site does for the fans is comparable in awesomeness….and posts like the panel to screen comparisons are a great example of that. Thank you.
The show rocks! Wish they would bring in Heath…at least one competent Alexandrian who could go on runs with Glenn.
Isn’t the guy walking with Daryl now kind of a heath type? He appears to at least be competent enough to survive when he is searching for people to join Alexandria?
They are most likely going to hold off on began until season 6 I would imagine
