The Walking Dead New World Order arc is nearly halfway over! The penultimate Issue 179 cover shows Eugene wearing Michonne’s katana on his back. As shocking as it would be to see him rock the katana, the comics have a penchant for covers that aren’t supposed to be taken literally (like in Issue 149 where Negan stood behind Rick despite still being in jail). However, maybe it WILL happen in the comics. Time will tell, but in the meantime let us know what YOU think will happen AND check out the Bill Sienkiewicz variant of Carl below!

NEW WORLD ORDER PART 5 OF 6
The journey home. There’s nothing worse than returning with fewer people than you left with.
The color scheme on this one is AWESOME!
What could this symbolize??? Can’t wait to see this issue, and I agree the cover art is AWESOME!
Michonne staying behind to eventually take over the commonwealth I imagine.
Carl wearing lipstick is creepy…
Best of the standard new world order covers. Also Eugene is one of my favorite characters glad he’s still around. With issue 200 coming up relatively soon the only storyline I see simmiring that has potential for ultimate heartbreaking is the disgruntled Dwight one. Hasn’t really been resolved and kind of hidden on the back burner, I’m hoping issue 200 is more like 100 and less like 150 which was good but not amazing.
Michonne is my favourite, I’m good as long as she’s ok!
Maybe Michonne will become a Commonwealth soldier.
Now im not 100% caught up with the comics but i do hope that eugene having michonnes katana means she is alright. To be honest as much as i love bad ass ninja michonne i would love to see her be able to relax more be more of a mum figure and not a fighter.
Well It was decided in the last issue that being a high school science teacher “would never do” so maybe this is how they reject someone. Not likely but since there is no context for what this cover means yet, I am taking a stab at it. Pun intended.
