Wait for it.
Waaaaaaait for itttttttttttt….
Who is this mysterious woman?
UPDATED to include solicitation information:
THE WALKING DEAD #128
STORY: ROBERT KIRKMAN
ART: CHARLIE ADLARD, STEFANO GAUDIANO & CLIFF RATHBURN
COVER: CHARLIE ADLARD & DAVE STEWART
After all this time, she should be more prepared.
PLS why you have to kill of Rick .. Kirkman! -_-
Hrm.. Who is this person and why are is the cover sideways?
Look at the dripping blood – she’s on the ground and the walker is over her.
I want to know who the girl (and her companions) are and how they play into the overall story. It’s looking like we’ll be seeing an entirely new group of characters after All Out War based on the cover of 127, but I really doubt that Rick, Carl, and some of the other major characters will be killed off.
My guess is that we’ll get a couple issues or a volume of these new characters before seeing them integrated into Rick’s group somehow.
My guess is that Dwight didn’t gunk up the arrow. His excuse will be him echoing the line he gave earlier in the issue that the walker gunk will throw off the weight of the bolts. I know Kirkman is crazy but he is not going to kill off Rick just like he’s not killing off Daryl on the TV show. I know that mantra of TWD is that “no character is safe” but these two characters basically define what the brand is. Nobody wants to be the person to ruin a brand, especially the creator of said brand.
I don’t think Rick is 100% immune to being killed off by Kirkman, but I do believe that he will be around for many, many more issues to come.
I hope Rick doesn’t die.
I actually want to see Rick die. But not now. There are many more things that need to happen. He has to get a weapon for his stub. And some characters like Andrea/Michonne need to die, cause I want to see how he reacts. But getting killed just like that is pretty lame, considering he’s the protagonist and a favorite charater to many fans. I want him to go out in an epic way, somewhere in issue 200. Maybe while saving Carl or something like that.
Agree with me?
I always expected him to die when Carl was a little older so Carl could fill Ricks shoes as a leader.
looks like Maggie to me
It’s not Maggie. Look at the cover for issue 127.
I’m thinking she is part of a group of Savior dissenters. This is one of Negan’s wives. She has the same hairstyle as one of the wives we see in 105. You can only see the back of her head though in issue 105 and we haven’t seen her since, so my theory is not exactly airtight.
It looks like Dwight’s (ex) wife to me, although I could be mistaken.
I thought so too, but it’s different hair. If you look at the styles, there is a picture of all of Negan’s wives in issue 105, like i said you only see the back of her head though.
I WANT TO KNOW WHO SHE ISSSSSSSSSSSS
I think it’s Sophia. Kirkman might finally be jumping ahead in the story line. Rick might die, so where will that leave the story?
Plus, it does say “after all this time, she should be more prepared”
Sophia has blonde hair, no?
Post 125 will be a whole new set of characters to go with the new TV spin off. Its the end of all these characters one way or another. Evident they’ve run out of steam with Rick and Co after the length of this Negan story…which is sad because there are a million and one things they can do with the characters still rather than a constant cycle of Governor-style villains and stories.
Besides negan name a governor esque villian?
Name a major story arc aside from Negan and the Governor, since the Governor.
Well there isn’t another major story arc but you can’t name one example (negan) and call it bored or tired
When the Zombies attacked Alexandria, that was huge !!! the discovey of Alexandria, the Hunters.,….
We were talking story arcs with a clear rival to Rick and the group alexandrite was a good thing and the hunters got stomped by the crew
I named the Governor too. Negan and the Governor were exactly the same storylines. Big bad wolf comes to blow the house down. Kirkman thinks that because one bad wolf drinks tea instead of coffee – it makes it a completely different story.
How is Negan and Governor were exactly the same story lines? I don’t see it. One of them was sick and other one is crazy.
Ya 3 different communities attacked the governer
Blake was clearly a psychopath. Where as negan is running a racket. It’s completely different. Negan seems to have some sort of long term post war plan whereas The Governor seemed more obsessed with revenge. When Carl raided Negans base, Negan seemed to respect his actions, to a certain extent. Imagine if that had been The Governors men? Carl would be dead now.
I dunno. I think the amount of time spent building up and then fighting with The Governor and Negan means that you really only haev to do it twice to be a bit on the predictable side. Over the course of 120 issues, we’ve spent like a third of that time dealing with these same two guys who are, in most ways, remarkably similar villains.
When the Zombies attacked Alexandria, that was huge !!! the discovey of Alexandria, the Hunters.,…
Negan and Blake are not even in the same league! I love them both, but Negan makes the gov look like a boy scout…I ADORE Kirkman’s villains. I cant see how you think there’s a “constant cycle of Governor-style villains and stories.” Over ten years, there have only been two nutcase leaders. Really oughtta read the Woodbury books too.. it gives a whole new perspective on the scum bag governor!!(not to mention the added perks of easter eggs and Gov’s story is literally MIND BLOWING)but, yeah… no way are these two men alike aside from being megalomaniacal sociopaths!
It’s Ghost Lori…
Who the fuck is “She”????!!?
If Rick were to die it would conclude in the same issue non cliffhanger style kinda like Lori you knew she was dead
Dwight shooting Rick is a red herring, as is all this hooplah about this new group. Rick dying at this point would be predictable and expected. So why not throw a curve ball like bring him closer to death than ever and then keep him alive in coincidence with some other twist? We have seen so many other people get zombie guts and blood all over themselves and possibly in their mouths, eyes, noses, and even wounds? Up until now, we have lived with the convention that bodily fluids do not carry the “pathogen”. If so, then Rick would simply catch an ordinary infection that, if treated properly, could just be cured from his system. OR this could be a game-changer. But I think there’s still more to do with Team Rick and its patriarch, but the new group could be a way to take a break from Team Rick for awhile and maybe even set things up for the TV spin-off. I REALLY hope they don’t kill Rick, or if they do then it coincides with a sizeable time-skip and Carl is the new protagonist.
It is LILY !!!!! and Rick will have a “deja vu” impression, but Lily
will rocognize her , she has seen the faces of Michonne and Rick as
stated in the novels.
Looks like Dwight’s wife to me.
Hmm, I didn’t see the text below.
“After all this time, she should be more prepared.”
Interesting. Well, that seems to imply this is someone we’ve seen before… I can’t really think of anyone looking like her currently, so perhaps there actually WILL be a timeskip of some sort, and we’re looking at Rosalita (or whatever the fuck her name is. Eugene’s crush.) or someone?
Or (just to throw a ridiculous, wild theory out there) maybe this is the woman who killed the Governor, and some of their group somehow escaped against all odds.
I have no real idea, but of course, I look forwards to finding out!
Perhaps one of Negan’s wives or Lilly Caul .
I’m confused, who is Lilly Caul?
I can’t remember anyone with that name, could be they’ve just slipped my mind.
Or is that the name of a character from the show?
She killed The Governor in the comic .
Oh, right. Hahaha that is weird, she was one of the people I thought of, too- just couldn’t remember her name. O.o
Great minds think alike, I suppose.
She is a character in the book of The Walking Dead Road to Woodbury Fall of the Governor part 1 and 2
It looks exactly like her!! I didn’t even think of that!
I hope it’s Lily. That would be awesome
I would much rather have it be Lily than one of Negan’s wives.
Plot Twist : The Governor survived and is searching for Rick and Lily to avenge..
the governor got his brains blown out and was kicked into a mob of zombies, your comment is invalid
UNLESS it’s The Governor’s twin…
I know :p you thought I was serious ??
I figured you were just trolling me lol.
Be cool if The Governor had a loyal followers out for revenge or possibly children.
I think that its someone no one has thought of.. Someone who has only been mentioned in the comic. In issue 96 a character named crystal was mentioned- she was taken hostage by negan and it is unknown whether or not she is alive. Just a thought.
That’s a really good thought man I’m going to go back to the comics and check that out .
i think rick is gonna die because Robert Kirkman said he will kill off rick in the show and comic eventually and i think daryl is gonna die within this season….and i think it will be cool to have lilly come back into the series…
All out war has been the best story arc yet in my opinion. It would be safe to kill rick now. Where as season 4 part two has been really weak, killing Daryl off would bead dangerous move, I don’t think they’re willing to do it. I’m expecting an epic cliff hanger to end terminus.
i think shes the person on the cover of #126 i think she might kill negan
Could it be the group of Saviors who are revolting against Negan back at the compound??? Or a time jump for our lead characters?
Looks a lot like Lauren Cohan (TV show Maggie). But I’m leaning towards a new group of survivors. Seeing Lilly come back would be very interesting though.
If, Rick and his group didn’t make it in the all out war. Who is going to be in the front cover of Compendium 3?
IF that were the case (I think we’ll lose Rick but not the others), I wouldn’t be surprised to see Rick cover the book anyway since he’s the icon.
OR, the new group up top and Rick and his group zombie-reflected on the bottom.
A lot of people are saying Lilly Caul, was there some closure to the members of Woodbury who ran into the prison? I thought Kirkman was done with their story. Unless it was addressed in the Fall of the Governor. Can anyone confirm that?
If it is Negan/Dwight’s woman; that would be an understandable entrance to at least connect the story in a good way, hopefully that gives us hope our originals live into Volume 22. the 126 cover looks to be Car with negan’s bat
looks like lauren cohan.
I would LOVE it if it was Lilly!! She deserves to be back in the comic, if she survived the prison! What if she rebuilt it? Made it safer and they go BACK to the prison, that would be pretty cool!
that reeeeaaally looks like laurie
This is definetly a new person who has been sheltered Ina community for a long time’ which explains “After all this time, she should be more prepared.” My guess is it’s either some unknown character from our communities or some new survivor from the obviously new survivors from cover 127.
It’d be pretty interesting if this was the wife of Jeffery Grimes. Think about it, think if Jeffery had a wife and he was heard to have a bit of a crush on lory as mentioned earlier in the comics. It’d be interesting to see rick and this new girl meet up. We could then really see if Jeffery is alive or dead…
WHAT HAPPEN TO RICK?
It looks like the actor who plays Maggie on tv.
This looks exactly like tv show maggie
I HOPE SHE IS LILLY
Perhaps the first page of 127 will be from the las page of #48 and then the rest is of Lilly and the group getting out of the prison… Also, I don’t have the issue in front of me but if there’s any possibility of Judith actually surviving the fall with Lori then I would say that Lilly leAves the prison to go back for her….
THIS IS LILY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Plot Twist : The governor survived and is searching for Rick and Lily to avenge.
it is probably lily of tara
Great cover art! This is Lilly Caul- she’s got on her signature fingerless glove that she had on in the most recent novel. Now that I’m almost done with the newest novel, I really like how the entire series of them so far have centered around Lilly’s experiences. Cool to see Lilly back in the comics after so many years, can’t wait to see how her storyline will play out post-Governor. Hey, maybe the Saviors and Survivors all killed each other in the insanity of the All Out War story arc and the comic will have nothing to do anymore with them, LOL.
To anyone wondering, this is Lilly Caul. If you’ve read the “Fall of the Governor” you should know what happens to Lilly and the Woodbury group after she kills the Governor.
Her and a few survivors escape the prison, and she becomes the new leader of Woodbury. Also, it states that only 6 people survived the prison assault including her. This means the 6 on the cover of Issue #127 must be them.
I thought it could be Lily too
Kirkman, said something in the recent letter hacks, about having a plan for Rick and not wanting to take the story off to follow Negan around, i know you have to take letter hacks with a pinch of salt but it seamed real enough to me, i cant be the only one that read that right?
Before the hilltop colony and the Alexandria safe zone,were under negans rule there was another place with the same rule. They decided to rebel and those on the cover r survivors from the rebellion and they go back to help defeat negan and the saviors
a lot of people are saying Lilly but obviously whatevers going on in 127 and 126 it has to connect to the current story so why would Lilly go to dc? and what are the odds of her running into any of the groups currently in the story?
keep in mind, our beloved group has traveled to washington DC and for Lily to also go there would be a bit of a stretch.
She looks like Maggie
Lilly making her way from GA to VA years later would be too much of a coincidence and I don’t think they would cutaway to just randomly talk about the Woodbury remnants. My guess is she’s someone new. They will spend a few issues following some new group before they collide with our existing group.
I really hope it’s not Lilly because If, Rick finds out she is still alive. Rick will kill Lilly for killing his wife and his baby. my vote is Sherry.
Am I the only one the would love to see the Governor novels adapted to comics ? we could see the awesome governor ascencion immortalized in inks, that would be totally awesome, I;d buy it
I would love a spin of comic. I’ve become accustomed to a fortnightly fix of TWD.
Does anyone else find editing on ipad impossible? (Mainly rhetorical)
What if the baby is alive and that is Lilly Caul?? That would be just breathtaking.
I am curious who she is.
The founder of the safe zone, could it be Alexanders group he formed after getting banned? Or did he die and i just miss it
Is it Lilly and she has Judy??
It’s Lilly !!
WTF is wrong with you morons? IT AINT LILLY CAUL, it ain’t a NEGAN WIFE, It aint a FEMALE FREAKIN VERSION OF RICK IN AN ALTERNATE DIMENSION! you goddamn morons! Gaddammit! sick of this crap! read 127 already, it’s been out for a month!
