“LINES WE CROSS”
NEW STORY ARC “LINES WE CROSS” It is time for Dwight to step up.
Time to test his loyalty and see where he stands. I love Dwight, don’t kill him off or anything. I think he has redeemed himself after doing all the nasty stuff he did for Negan (especially killing Abraham). I love that he leads the Alexandrian army and that he has a tight friendship with Rick and everyone. The only thing i can’t get past is that he didn’t say goodbye to Andrea. I know he was pissed on Rick for killing Sherry but come on man…
I’m glad to see Jesus getting more attention.
Jesus + Aaron Confirmed? Lol never thought I’d be excited for a gay couple.
Starting to realize that they’re actual couples before anything other consideration ? Awesome. 😉
Good job, Kirkman.
Ive never had a problem with them. I didn’t mean it in a critical manner. Aaron and Jesus are 2 of my Fav Characters
No way Dwights gonna kill Rick like the cover teases ,I think it’s more of a symbol of where the characters are at currently in the story. I do believe Rick will start to give up now and concentrate more on Carl ,maybe having Jesus and other strong characters help him teach Carl to be able to survive his inevitable death.
So excited for this Issue. I think that Jesus and Aaron will get together and Eugene and the rest will set off for Ohio and Dwight will NOT put a guy to Ricks head
Best typo ever?
Def. Award received for best typo ever…
After reading the last Issue I think it’s pretty obvious what this Issue will contain. Seeing Rick is broken over the death of Andre Dwight will step up. He will help lead the people Alexandria firmly setting himself as 2nd in command. It was meant to mislead us months ago. This will be a feel good new age Issue. Negan vs Maggie will happen. Rick will vouch for Megan saying he has changed and should be accepted. Aaron+Jesus and Sidiq will mention the radio
We’re definitely heading forwards a storyline where Negan becomes the provisional leader of the communities, which causes the rage of Maggie (she just killed Gregory lie 20 issues ago (not sure of how much time has passed but I’m sure it’s not more than a couple weeks) and maybe we’ll eventually see how Carl becomes the leader of the saviors, or at least of a group of people, we’ve seen how much he wants to become like his father, and we know how strong he is, so now we have a fucked up Rick who won’t be exerting his leadership for at least a while.
I’m very excited of the possibilities this new arc is gonna show, hopefully Eugene will become even more reckless than he already was. As the story has developed we have seen how Eugene becomes a more useful and badass character when somebody dies because of him, the sense of guilt is a huge motivation for Eugene (just as it happened with our beloved Abraham) so we will see some rad shit coming from my all time favorite character.
