When I started at Skybound we had just put out issue #105 of The Walking Dead and we’re almost at issue #150! So crazy! Check out the cover of the milestone issue RIGHT HERE:
THE WALKING DEAD #150
STORY: ROBERT KIRKMAN
ART: CHARLIE ADLARD, STEFANO GAUDIANO & CLIFF RATHBURN
COVER A: CHARLIE ADLARD & DAVE STEWART
COVER B: BLANK SKETCH VARIANT
40 PAGES | Black and White | Mature
Special EXTRA-sized anniversary issue.
In our 150th issue, Rick Grimes finds himself… BETRAYED.
What do you guys make of it?!
I gotta be honest…
The big 150 is not doing it for me.
Does it for me 😛
“Special EXTRA-sized” compensates.
it problably does for me only because this is exactly what i excpected for 149 cover and this cover
See, that 150 is LOOMING! It makes it seem like a monumental issue # is much more significant than the fact that Rick’s on that cover, pissed & bloody and that the title arc is “Betrayed”. I’m not one to really be concerned with “monumental issues”… don’t really get it unless there’s a special anniversary-type variant. So, I would’ve been fine with the issue # slightly augmented and/or re-positioned so that you notice it but it doesn’t overshadow everything else.
I’m guessing this will be a significant* episode.
* where significant = lots of deaths
It doesn’t mean there will necessarily be lots of death. It could just be one, one impactful one (say like issue 100). There may even be no death, but a story changing revelation.
Is it too obvious Rick will be betrayed by Negan ? I’m sure he won’t, just because Kirkman knows we’re going to assume it.
As Magna said : “Nope. Not buyin’ it.”
(I mean this idea, not the friggin’ comic !!!!!) (^o^)/
Na, I don’t think Negan is the one that’s gonna betray Rick. Rick would have to trust him in order to be betrayed by him & Rick would certainly prove himself earning the label given him in issue #146 if he decided to trust Negan (I think #149 is a major Cover Bluffer)! My bets are on someone who’s been in good standing.
O……… M……… G……. I’m really clueless. I’m still recovering from 144
That cover is sick!! I can’t wait to read issue #150!!!
Great cover is rick ever going to lose the cane ??? They almost never show hom on the cover with it
3 days after my birthday?
YEAH!!! ANOTHER OVER-SIZED!!!! YEAH!!! After being on hiatus from the internet for about 5 days (We’re moving), I feel EPIC seeing this cover!
And I thought 149’s cover was amazing… WOW. What if it’s Carl who betrays Rick to the whisperers?
My money’s on it too. Though, it’d suck.
Nah, not Carl, I’m quite sure it won’t be Negan either, that would be too obvious plus in order to get betrayed, Rick would first need to trust Negan which isn’t the case, I’d say it must be a relative of any of the last people who died, maybe Eugene ? What about Dwight ? He’s on the #152 cover alone with a gun and “Lucille” anyway something big is coming, I hope we won’t lost another important character.
As long as Carl is okay. Maybe Lydia kills Rick? Naa, that would be too good to be true. 😛
Hmm too soon for Rick to die, but I’m quite sure he won’t make it to the very end, at some point Carl will become the main character of TWD, my bet’s on it.
What you think of that cover, Neutral?
Rick’s eyes look kind of wonky to me, but otherwise the cover is getting me scared and anxious. My thoughts are someone is going to kill Negan in front of Rick, therefore betraying Rick’s notions of the new society. After all 149 shows Negan and Rick together, and Rick made the comment to Maggie in the last issue of ‘do you want to get Negan and kill him too? Have you learned nothing…? etc’
Hope I’m wrong though…I’m not ready for my Negsy to die.
Then again maybe it’s Lydia getting killed after Rick tries to protect her from the angry people.
Most likely any of my thoughts are completely wrong! OH TWD, why do you have to be once a month!
This cover just makes me wanna say “This is the rick grimes I believe in”
Rick just banged a Virgin! Your Naughty Rick
Gotta be Negan, Lydia, Mangus, or Maggie…
Hopefully it takes Rick out of peacemaker mode and puts him squarely back into asskicker mode.
Or Carl….I mean, he REALLY cares about Lydia, and may well betray him if Eugine’s plan could harm her
Why is everyone feeling like Maggie could betray Rick, not that I find it stupid, I just don’t see it coming, so please tell me what makes you feel like it could happen ?
Is that Crazy Eye’s Rick? It’s been a while since we’ve seen that look! I wonder if it’ll be a Maggie betraying Rick situation. They seem to have different ideals, but there is still too many pages between this issue and our current to really even call it. I like the cover but the giant “150” seems a little misplaced.
What if the betrayer is Rick for working with Negan?
I like your idea dude.
Guys, it’s definitely going to be Euge, Rick is the dad! More Magna please!
I want the old Rick Grimes back. He is only 33, but looks like he’s in his fifties. He needs to get his shaggy hair and beard back and get Merle’s arm from the TV show. Seriously this pirate hook thing isn’t working. Negan seems to be a too obvious betrayal, so I’m going to say it was someone like Magna, Carl, Lydia, Eugene, or maybe even Maggie. Maggie or Eugene might just start a war with the Whispers and Rick kills them in refute.
My money is on Eugene… Eugene is pissed and I think he is going to do something rash.
I think Rick is going to kill Maggie
Why would he do something like that ?
All I have to say is… Jesus. Fucking. Christ.
Can’t wait for January and I hate January’s.
Damn I cant WAIT for this issue I hope there is a couple special variant covers.
All signs point to Carl, Andrea and Lydia getting killed next issue, repercussions ensue, Rick still doesn’t want to risk the war with the Whisperers, is betrayed by the communities who want blood, gigantic bloodbath ensues in issue 150 and he gets back on the road………but the reasons I keep reading and am always gripped by the comic, is whatever you predict is NEVER what Kirkman cooks up, and he ALWAYS does fakeouts and false leads, so until January!
They wouldn’t kill off three of the main characters in one issue and I don’t think Kirkland is done with Lydia and Carl but I believe he is probably circling the drain with Andrea and Rick.
Betrayed…by a handkerchief?
Maybe this means Alpha reneged on her promise to leave them alone….
I still think Eugene is a good candidate for causing a whole hellstorm.
I take it back. Betrayal is a very strong word. Its gotta be Michonne. Pains me to say it, but I think its her, and its going to hurt Rick really bad.
Off topic…but where is the 147 preview? Out tomorrow right?
Almost there. Cons kind of sap all of our resources.
I really don’t know where this one is going but it’s a nice build up. It’s too close to call. The issues she getting so intense every trip
At what point are you going to put Rick in a wheelchair…
Here’s to Eugene finally snapping and contacting (using the radios from the fair) another community to wage war with the Whisperers. Does the pretty girl get diced? perhaps. Basically Eugene takes control from Rick using his smarts and betrays him. Bloodshed ensues.
Does anyone think the community will betray him, my guess is that Carl will die due to the preview for 149. Carl talks about the future, seems like that’s always a bad omen to make plans for the future. It’s almost not allowed in the world that he’s created. Also, there is emphasis on the word safe. Meaning it’s not safe. They want revenge so bad, they are willing to die for it. Die for it because they really don’t have much to live for in this crappy world. For a lot of people, the people they cared about the most have just been killed. They associated there purpose for life with them. Now they have nothing. Just a guess, thinking more people may die too.
