APRIL 2 UPDATE
Hey gang, yes, this was an April Fool’s Day joke. Click here to read more about it.
april fools, right?
APRIL FOOLS! HAHAHAHAHA (but seriously, you got me there for a second)
Though it’ll be cool
Definitely April Fools. Kirkman already said he wasn’t going to add Dixon to the comics.
On Talking Dead last season he said he might….
As much as it would be cool to see him in the comics, I doubt we will see him by issue 129. Maybe later on down the line.
Last season. Since then he’s said he’s decided he won’t.
I’m getting a tattoo of this cover on my back today !!
And on my chest so two tattoos one cover . One word EPIC
Jason you crack me up
Thanks I like making people laugh
Hey, you not Googling anymore? Whassup?
I will be posting some stuff on there today
Did you get my post?
Which one? I try to answer everything I get so if I didn’t answer I haven’t seen it.
Sometimes it backfires on me lol
IF IT’S REAL I LOVE IT!! & IF IT’S APRIL FOOLS JOKE I STILL LOVE IT!!! <3 😉 🙂
Lol too bad I read that comic those stills were pulled, if ya had edited out the kneeling Eugene it could maybe have fooled some non comic tv fans lol. I will never forget the ball biting issue lol!
That would be awesome and that book would go for a lot But feeling an april fools here
NOT AN APRIL FOOLS JOKE!!!! GIMME GIMME GIMME
I was excited till i remembered it’s April Fools Day
Ah man. I was totally suckered there. Its much later in the day in the uk so april fools is just about over. This would of been so cool tho.
OH MY GOD I FELL FOR THIS FOR ALL OF LIKE TWO MINUTES I was like NO WAY MAN THIS IS A TERRIBLE IDEA THEY’RE JUST DOING IT BECAUSE OF HIS SHOW POPULARI-wait a minuet
Happy to see that i’m not the only one who don’t wanna see him in the comics..
Hell I don’t want to see him in the show:P
A big F to U!!!
lol it’s nothing against him really. Look you gotta understand I’ve been reading the comic since 2004. I’m a huge fan. I’ve enlisted many to watch the show when it started. When I saw a shirt at hot topic that said team Daryl I died a little inside. Great character I’m just sad at what marketing and a lot of fans have turned him into.
You aren’t the only one my friend. I’m tired of all this put Darryl in the comics bullshit. I don’t mind him on the show but I could care less if they kill him off. As a massive fan of the comics, I have zero emotional attachment to any characters on the show that weren’t in the comics.
The possiblities of this being true :
-Norman really slept with Kirkman
-Simply..April Fools Day.
Finally about time! I really want to buy it! Remember it’s not April’s Fool. It’s will coming out on July.
Listen you can’t fool TRUE WALKING DEAD FANS. That’s just Dwight with Eugene tied up in front of Alexandria, and he’s holding Abrahams machine gun. It’s a panel and all they did was remove Dwight’s tattoos and add angel wings on his jacket. Come on
They did fool true fans, if only for a second. We’re just admitting to it.
Hi. I’m one of them.
OMG I beleived it for a sec. Thank god it’s not true.
love the cover work GREAT APRIL FOOLS JOKE, maybe if we got all together and rocked this itll be a cover art in the back pages
Nice surprise to see that at the beginning of the month haha
Well duh, Dwight is the Daryl of the comics. He even had a crossbow.
Dwight is multitalented
you just crushed my dreams.
Knew it. You can’t fool me, Brian Huntington!
Which issue is this pic in?
wrong. it’s 98 but you were close.
You dirty sons of….. Ya got Me good ..
HAHAH well played kirkman and charlie! almost had me there for a sec. Well played
Nice one but the ultimate April fools would be AMC releasing a statement saying the show had been cancelled.
OH MY GOD
It’s a troll
Thank goodness… had me worried. Thought the comic was runied for a min.
I hear you Barry. The last thing we need in the comic is Darryl Dixon
Would you stop reading or would you just be ticked off?
Come on Bastet don’t talk so crazy. I’m too huge of a fan of the comic to stop reading. I don’t hate Darryl on the show I just have no emotional attachment to him or any other character that doesn’t exist in the comics. I just don’t think its necessary to add him to the comics and if they do it would feel forced and only done to increase sales by bringing in people that only watch the show. In other words it would really suck
april’s fool ???? wait and see , though that would be so AWESOME
Awesome joke haha
April’s fool !! got me for a sec
I don’t even visit the comic issue discussions as of yet & I fell for this one!!
Too bad Carol is dead in the comics. When it comes to the show, I am a hardcore Daryl & Carol shipper. #Caryl
I’m so gonna take the super large image and have a poster printed. Guess the joke is on you now for posting the Hi Res pic! haha
You know they will steal your idea and start selling ” April fools cover” posters In the websites shop!! You will increase Kirkman’s wallet by millions!! So stick a royalties lawsuit in I’ll back you up!!
Good one guys.
This will probably end up being a variant cover.
very cool, the TV show has now influenced the comics…
Bite his balls already!
They really should do that, though.
I see what you did there…
I’m happy lol. Nows not the time for Daryle to appear in the comics
I’m from Spain and I didnt know anything about aprils fool’s day. I was thinking How Kirkman could use a same picture from other comic… You got me CABRONES
Yeah yeah April Fool’s day to you too motherfucker
Solid move, Kirkman. Solid move.
That made me chuckle. Good one!
Hell nah I don’t want Daryl in the comics. That way people from the show who claim they’re “fans” but only watch it for Daryl can come to the comics and only read for Daryl. Then they’ll start saying that annoying statement “If Daryl dies, I’ll stop reading.” Guess what people, Kirkman enjoys killing off people in the comic so Daryl will die if he’s put in.
No Kirkman tell me you didn’t fold to the TV Fans and this is just a cover keep the walking dead pure Daryl is a TV show character don’t fold to the fans this is your baby you kill who you want regardless to are attachments to the characters that’s why I enjoy the walking dead so much your like nope this is my story I’ll kill off who I want and let live who I want this just shows your willing to bend the story to please the mass’s don’t do it!!!
Ah!! You almost got me!! Good April Fool’s joke! I am in the camp that does NOT ever want Darryl Dixon to appear in the comics!! Don’t get me wrong- Darryl is my favorite character on the TV show but I think he should remain that, just a character on the TV show. We’ve got Dwight in the comics. For now at least, eh…
I see this at 3:30 a.m. April 2, and it’s an April Fools? Dirty pool.
Considering that this* was posted on the 26th of last month….This cover is a joke yeah, but the entire concept isn’t. * https://www.skybound.com/the-walking-dead/hmmm-whats-this/
I can now see a load of Daryl fan girls walking around with 10000 copies of The comic 😉
please tell me this is not real. i will stop reading this book if this is some dumb ass cash grab
Really? Kirkman always delivers, lighten the fuck up.
Oh for crying….in a show where there are like two male leads he stands out, but in the comic, where there have been about thirty versions of him, he’s going to be pointless. And does that mean the brother stuff all over again?
Sigh. I fall for things.
