It’s down to 4! Rick vs Michonne! Carl vs Glenn! This is PRETTY close to how I thought it would go down, but I was definitely unsure about Michonne vs Andrea in the last round. Did the show help Michonne and hurt Andrea? Did it help Glenn? Maybe Carl too? I’ll be honest, my feelings for characters ARE influenced by the show, so I can definitely see someone who came from being a fan of the show and is just getting into the comic having a different take on these characters than I do. Anyway, onto the voting!
RICK vs MICHONNE
Rick has dominated his way to this point. Standing in his path to the finals? A woman with a katana. Can Rick’s leadership and awesome neck-biting skills overcome the challenge of Michonne?
CARL vs GLENN
Ok, is Carl a little emo these days? Yes. But let he who did not rock Dashboard Confessional when they were younger cast the first stone. And I made my case for Glenn in the comments section of the last post, but in short, Glenn took this awful, post-apocalyptic scenario and used it to become a better man. And that is f**king awesome.
Have a great 4th of July weekend you guys (foreign fans, enjoy your regular weekend, maybe have a BBQ)! Polls will show results MONDAY.
Here’s the full bracket as it stands right now:
holy crap this is a hard decision!
Grimes family all the way!
I voted my faves but I feel the other two will be the ones to make it to the final round.
who’d you vote for?
Rick vs Michonne was hard for me, but Michonne was my #1 for a long time before Andrea took her spot, so I chose her. Both are badass but Michonne is always frontline badass with a very serene look on her face while she swings the katana. And I chose Carl. That one was easy.
Happy 4th july bastet
Thanks, mate! Plan to be a couch spud all day today… eyeballin’ this site for amusement.
Sounds Good, lol, will you be watching the Dead, White and Blue Weekend or is that to much for the family
I like to wait for the DVD to come out & then I plan it out leading right up to the new season premiere. I will be checking out that Talking Dead S5 Preview at the end, tho! You?
am binge watching “Falling Skies” at the minute to catch up as a season 4 starts over here next week. I will be watching TWD season 4 in the build up to season 5, have the full season saved on my DVR will watch the Talking dead on-line when someone posts it over here too.
Is that the only way to watch certain shows & videos for you….is if someone posts a link over there? You guys have it rough!
Yeah we don’t get the Talking Dead on any broadcast channels, so I have to go looking for it on-line. TWD used to be really bad over here too, last season we got the new episode the day after it was on in the US which was good but previous seasons we were several episodes behind you guys and season 2 didn’t start in the UK until it was finished in the US!!!!! now thats rough! now am worried that season 5 will not start in the UK at the same time as the US 🙁
UGH! Sounds like my situation when I was first trying to establish my comics!! I wish there was something I could do to help!
its getting better, with stations like NetFlicks and Digital Media you can get things or finds things pretty quickly. but The Talking dead was something that I was missing out on for ages and then someone started sharing on line and I could watch that too, would be nice though if they just put it on after the show like they do over there.
Talking dead is really cool
I said I wouldn’t do it but the son flipped the channel & parked it on AMC. I got sucked in.
Am sure it was awesome 🙂 you looking forward to this weeks issue, didnt feel like as long as a wait this time, think having the dead cup helped tolook forward too has helped.
Yeah, I got the same feeling…that it wasn’t such a longer wait for the next issue. Maybe it was because 2 other issues came out while I was waiting. And yes, this Dead Cup sure helped!
You read Outcast? You said you did, din’tcha? I am so looking forward to #2 on that!
Saw X-Men yesterday… was good. Probably doing Transformers this weekend.
Yeah read outcast. Thought it was great and really creepy but in a good way. Have pre ordered up to issue 4 cause thats as far as it will let me. Really enjoyed it. Yeah a though x-men was ok. Did you stay till after the credits for the hidden scene? Transformers will be my next film too
I did but not exactly sure of who that was. My son has a suspicion… he’s probably right. I liked it but the early X-Men movies were better, IMO. I’d pick Apes over Transformers but I’m the only one in my family that would do so. Gotta go with ’em!
Going to my first con this weekend, too. It’s Repticon….for reptiles, lol! At least I can finally say I’m going to one! No cosplay as Godzilla, tho!!
Its a reference to rhe next x-men film which is called “age of apocalypse” x-men first class is my fav of the series. Yeah apes will be better than transformers, rise of the planet was one of my fav the year it came out. “Repticon” sounds like it was made for some godzilla cosplay. Lol.
My fave has to be the 3rd one, “The Last Stand”. Love Jean Grey & think Famke makes an awesome one!
Wow, the Carl v Glen was a lot closer than I though it would be! Father V Son in the final !
Yeah, I get what people are saying about Glenn’s character, but I still can’t believe he made it so far & so close! I think people are just feeling sorry for the splatter, lol! Rick vs Carl…. wow…. that’s gonna be interesting….but I believe Rick’s got it, simply because people don’t like the new Carl.
Right from the start, a had a feeling it might come down to Rick v Carl ( easy to say now) but it was always in the back of my mind. I like Carls new look, typical teenager, trying out new things, my vote is not set in stone yet, I have changed my mind several times just today lol.
Who are you currently leaning towards?
At the start of the day I was all about Rick, but right now I’m more towards Carl, he has had so many big moments, to many to list, and man has that kid had it rough! but then so has Rick . . . man I really don’t know, what about you? am guessing Carl?
I think about both of them over the whole period, not just recently. I’ve always loved Rick. He’s always maintained at a certain level of favorite for me. Carl, on the other hand….there was a time when I just didn’t think about him. But then, whenever he did have his moments, it was always very memorable to me. The more he had, the more he progressed upward on that level of favorite for me, whereas Rick just stayed at a constant level. When he took Ben out, that really peaked my attention. There were other frames where he had me saying, “Wow! This kid’s baad!” Then when he stowed away to get to Negan, that just tipped the scale. So I gotta vote for him, since he’s progressively become my favorite.
Rick may have taken a step backward with this Douglas persona.
In the end I went with Glenn.
Michonne and Carl FTW
Rick and Carl!
Rick and Carl
I voted for these two to see the results of this match if they both happen to win . I feel bad because I feel like I should of voted for Glenn .
Took me a while to decide between Rick and Michonne, but in the end went for Rick & Carl, though for sure that Glenn would get beat in the last round cant see him beating Carl though . . . or can he!
He can.. I just switched my vote to Glenn. #Glenn4theWin
lol you spinning around, again.
Stranger results have been revealed!
Yes you should feel bad going around hyping Glen up and bam nothing
lol he just isn’t as cool as comic Carl.
Haha but yeah I could go with Rick and Glenn. F**k Carl and sorry Michonne, Ricks been around longer than you.
lol fuck carl he’s a little hipster now
True that. Never liked Carl from the start. Especially after issue six….
Shane had it coming…………
I hate you, Carl. So very much.
I am with you

Happy 4th July to all my US pals
Thanks.. What’s your next movie you want to see ?
Probably going to go see “Transformers” or “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” next, transformers has been getting worse since the first one but will still go to see this new one (trailer looks good) and I loved rise of the planet of the apes so have high hopes for the second one, what about you?
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is my next one . August is a big movie month for me I’m going to see Guardians of the Galaxy, Teenage mutant ninja Turtles and Sin City .. I will try to see Lets be Cops .
Guardian’s looks really fun, so def going to see that, and yeah def going to see TMNT, might even watch the 80’s one to get in the mood. #GrimesFamilyFinal
I’ve been watching the new TMNT cartoon I bought all the available seasons plus I’ve watched all the movies recently.. The turtles were my favorite thing I can remember from my childhood. Transformers is a close second.
I was a big fan of the animated TMNT in the 90’s and the 90’s Animated Spider-man and X-Men shows. also the Dungeons and Dragons carton was a fav
How old are you if you don’t mind me asking?
35, born in 1978 so am an old man lol
well I feel better about my age now 🙂
I am planning on seeing them too
Do you like Sin City ?
yes yes I do
Who do you like more Dwight or Marv ?
i gotta go with Marv. Just gotta. Did you read outcast and if you did was it good?
Yes it is really good I’m definitely going to keep reading it..
You seen these?
No but that is awesome.
Hubby wants to go see Transformers but the second one kinda killed it off for me. Still, I love Mark Wahlberg, so we may hit the theater for it. I’m all for Planet of the Apes!! My fandom goes all the way back to the old TV series, which I watched religiously (you should feel just fine about your age!). But the next one in queue is X-Men. We’re going to see that Sunday.
MARKY MARK….COME ON FEEL IT COME ON COME ON
the original Planets of the Apes film is a fav of mine, I remember the apes use to scare the crap out of me as a kid lol.
A day off with pay…whoot, whoot!
doesn’t get better than that! hope your getting the most out of it?
The fact that I was able to sleep in was compensation enough!!
its the little things in life. . .
See I was thinkin the same thing
No doubt go us!!!
Enjoy your independence from er . . . .the UK 🙂
lol gives me a reason to cook out
As good a reason as any, its raining here so no BBQ 🙁 for me . . . cook me a steak nice and rare please !
As Brandon Lee said in The Crow it’s can’t rain all the time. For you sir I will cook you up a good one
A tear fell. Gonna tip the bottle to the late actor & the late character.
the crow was such a good film, I often say “it cant rain all the time” to people who have no clue that its a film reference
Man I do it all the time The Crow is my all time favorite movie . I am a huge Bruce and Brandon Lee fan
I’d like to run these through the brackets to see how they’d play out at the end, but I have learned that I cannot predict you guys’ votes just as much as I can’t predict what’s going down in the next issue!
Rick and Glenn. Funny, a year ago I would’ve voted for Michonne and Carl. They used to be my favorites, but then I stopped liking Carl and started liking Rick, especially after he decided not to kill Negan.
Completely opposite for me. At first, there was nothing special about Carl, except that he was a kid coming up in the apocalypse. Then he started to stand out to me & I realized just how badass he is, being just a kid. Michonne was my #1 for a while, but then she started fizzling out….but so did Rick. I voted for Michonne over Rick because she’s been the frontline badass & still swings the katana like nobody’s biz.
When I think about the show… these are the main characters where my votes would be totally different!!
The Grimes duo
Yup, Rick and Carl, Rick wins
Had a really hard time deciding between Rick and Michonne, but I chose Rick and Glenn
Well… Andrea’s out… So…
…I don’t really care who wins now.
I’m holding out for The Last Man Standing: Carl
Thanks Bastet #CarlForDaWin
#LastManStanding! All the way, baby!
So I prob wont be here for da win cause Im going camping until sunday but I hope I win
We all find out Monday! Hope you enjoy your stowaway…. uh…camping trip!
Lol. CARL! Get back in that house!
Do you like my Carl entry for the Weekend Challenge?
I mostly don’t like Carl simply because TTG managed to do that same(very similar) type of relationship better between Lee and Clem, and they weren’t even family.
On top of that, his TV show counterpart is better, he had no development until that bit after the prison, as well as a few “shocking” lines that lost their value because it’s meant to push his character and show how hard he’s becoming, but Carl just saying a few words in isolated scenes, sorry, doesn’t work for me.
He’s actually become more likeable in more recent arcs, but I think most people like him because they see a little kid with a gun and praise him for being a “little badass”, not realizing how shallow his character was until very recently, and even then, they don’t care, because now that he’s getting more of a focus, becoming a more complex character, they don’t like him because… he looks different? Not saying that’s you, but I just don’t like Carl in the comics, especially all the undeserved praise he gets, granted, some of it is deserved, but few people rarely give it(back to the fact that they just liked him as a little badass).
I get what you’re saying. For me, it’s a little more than a little kid holding an assault rifle. He’s that character that, when he has a scene or he says something, it’s few & far in between and it stands out. His mannerisms are also way beyond his age. It’s the way he carries himself. I don’t believe he’d need Rick to survive.
I like the comic Carl better than show Carl. Comic Carl seems mature well beyond his age & show Carl feels completely opposite. I like the new Carl in this arc. His new looks and a whittling hobby just make things more realistic.
Carl’s not my top vote; my #1 was Andrea, hands down. I’m choosing Carl over Rick because he’s progressively grown on me, whereas my feelings for Rick have stayed on a steady course, with a little dip in personal rating due to his inconsistency.
What? Michonne over Andrea?
….sigh…yep…that’s what I’m saying….
#Rick and Glenn!
The big Grimes battle off draws near….
You think Carl’s gonna win? People can’t seem to get past Carl of the past two issues. Then again, he’s getting more & more votes (that we know of).
I know, right? “He’s been annoying lately!” How? Because he suddenly wears glasses and not a hat?
These are four people I don’t really care for, but I guess I will be pooling for Rick to win now. As long as Glenn doesn’t win I will be fine.
Hardest round yet, going to take my time with this one
Yeah we had the big #GlennForTheWin campaign so it feels kind of weird voting against him .
Was a big win, but I think his time is up, Glenn is one of my fav on the show, but cant see him beating Carl in the comic popularity. #GrimesFamilyFinal
I’m thinking about bringing it back . #Glenn4theWin
Ok you convinced me I’m going to vote #GrimesfamilyFinal it has a ring to it .
Want an extra vote? Tell Jason who to vote for, LMAO!
that was the plan 🙂
Hey that wasn’t very nice.
You love it !!
Ain’t no fun being nice ALL the time! Muahahaha!
LOL!!!!!! So so true
I finally read Outcast today it was extremely good. I’m kinda disappointed because now I have to collect something else.
was good how creepy was that kid’s smile!!!! yeah its another on my list now, Ouch my bank balance!
Yes kid was creepy I was thinking those were flashbacks of Kyle’s childhood for a second .
Hope Glenn wins, he was always my favorite character. Call me racist, but come on, how many asian characters do you know that are in a really cool comic? After his death… there’s none that I can think of.
Glenn didn’t have any character whatsoever. There are also plenty of cool Asian comic characters out there, plenty better than Glenn.
Glenn brought Rick back to the camp so without him there wouldn’t be a story he is a very important character.
I have been reading The Walking Dead comic since 2008 (Issue 53 being my first issue of the series). So I have likely been reading longer than most people here.
I agree that he was important to begin with, but as the story advanced he dropped out more and more. He has a bit of a rise in Alexandria with the Nicholas rebellion stuff, but I didn’t care much for it.
Maybe I was a little harsh with my last statement, so allow me to retract a little. Glenn has character, but he always felt like comic relief to me. Realistically anyone could have married Maggie if Glenn died before he met her and took his storyline after. To me, he had no unique storylines that set him apart from the pack (or defined his character you may say).
Ok cool we can agree to disagree. Who is your favorite character?
My favorite character is Negan (Eugene and Abraham are very close runner-ups).
A little Thanos in anything makes it so much better. I am really hyped for GotG, should be awesome.
By the way I respect your opinion. I have plenty of ideas and opinions people probably don’t agree with . People including myself get emotionally attached to some of these characters for different reasons. I really happen to like Glenn , but I understand you don’t have to and we still can be cool .
It’s cool. I just get a little extreme with my Glenn hate sometimes. I really just wanted Negan or Eugene to win.
>Implying he’s new to the comics (HUE)
What does Hue stand for pimp ?
I hope you are not talking shit ?
I wouldn’t know many unless they’re manga, or if they were stereotyped as in a Kung Fu master, mystical, accountant or a nerdy uni student. Glenn was an everyday dropkick asian, ordinary, didn’t have over the top qualities like some other characters in the series, I looked forward to reading how he reacts in the difficult problems they came across.
It depends on how many comics you yourself have read. I have read many, making my exposure rather broad, meaning I know of quite a lot of cool Asian comic characters (many being different to the stereotypes you listed).
Yes, I recently just started reading it. I just finished off the first volume (which covers the first five issues I believe). Really great series, can’t wait to read more.
I’ve never liked Carl. My favorite has always been Rick. Glenn is okay. I prefer Andrea over Michonne entirely.
I love Rick, but I think I like the show Rick better, especially now that comic Rick is Douglas’s clone.
……. Every one sould like me );
Got to root for my boy….
I just mindlessly voted. Negan’s gone. I’m dissaponted. I just voted Rick, Glenn.
I called it awhile back that it would come down to Rick vs Carl (not necessarily how I voted here but we all know that’s how it’s going down
lel i hop geln wins best caracter!1!!! wai beter than that knee-gun fgt hoo has no personalitits
Man it’s gonna wind up being Rick vs. Carl. That’s just not right. So it begs me to ask the question for the finals; are we judging them on popularity, or who would best who in a bout of physical prowess?
I’m sticking with which one is my favorite. If it’s between the Grimes, I’m gonna have to go with Carl.
Go Carl *-* I’m Brazilian, With great pride Brazil / that thrill to have my banner on the site that I love most❤️❤️❤️
Everyone seems to have expected Carl or Rick to win from the beginning, come one Michonne, the underdog for once!
OOOH, RICK AND CARL!!!
How in the hell did Glenn get that close? Well, no matter. He lost.
