THE WHISPERER WAR PART 5
And we’ve also got the previously announced Arthur Adams and Nathan Fairbairn variant to go with it!
What are you guys MOST looking forward to in the WHISPERER WAR? What are you loving so far? Let us know in the comments!
Wait… Is Eugene black?
no, it just looks that way for the cover
BURN IT ALL DOWN KIRKMAN #Dontkilldante
Eugene? Or Beta unmasked?
That is Eugene. I’m guessing? and I’m guessing The Hilltop will get fucked over in a retaliatory strike after Beta kicks the bucket in this issue coming up ( I’m not expecting Beta to go down without a fight. )
Like to me? He’s the kind of guy who would plan a multiple community attack in-case he dies everyone loses sort of deal. Unlike Alpha he’s not gonna get caught with his pants down so to speak.
Plus Beta has a more muscular build than this cover character.
Anyways yeah this is a Revenge killing cover. I hope Maggie makes it out safely ( If that’s her in the background photo. )
Great cover! I’m assuming Eugene will use the radio to help the survivors either during or most likely after the war. I think Maggie, Sophia, Carl, Lydia, Aaron, Dante and (Maybe) Hershel will escape the Hilltop. Hopefully Andrea is on cover 6.
Agree. I’m gonna be really pissed if she isnt in it. I think it will be she and Jesus.
Is Carl, because don’t have an eye, he grew up
The death of Maggie while hilltop burns to the ground and Lydia finding out that Negan killed her mother
Since we know that the Whisperers possess bows and arrows from issue #156 with Negan killing the wild pig, maybe they shoot fiery arrows into the Hilltop. One thing is for sure, things are going downhill at the Hilltop fast!
Holy shit, RIP Hilltop!
Lydia will pay for this
Why Lydia ?
OH SNAP! it is about to go down at hilltop. i had a feeling they would be targeted after sending so many soldiers to aid alexandria. I really hope andrea and maggie make it out of all this alive. although i have a feeling that at least one of them is going to bite the bullet. maybe eugene calls for reinforcments from ohio and saves the day? i wouldnt be upset if rick lost his life over this war, hes kind of past his prime as a character and i feel like carl should take over the story after rick
I believe that only Maggie Jesus Carl and Lydia will live and the hilltop will be destroyed by the whisperer(and maybe by the Ohio’s group because Eugene seems very angry and disappointed)
RIP Hershel and Hilltop!! I hope I am wrong!
Jesus is not at the Hiltop! he is with Michonne
The variant ones look really cool. It’s also nice that they go together in one large scene.
It is Maggie on the top, then down below it is Eugene Porter the burning building is probably the Hiltop because it looks like the Hiltop and Maggie is right beside it so yeah.
Holy SHNIKIES! These covers are killing me. We just got to know the new world and now it’s going to be wiped away… I’m guessing a long trip to Ohio soon for a small band of survivors?
So my vision of Grandpa Rick is a little further away than I thought… Bummer.
