“The Road’s End”
Nothing is more damaging than misplaced trust.
I love this cover, Would look beautiful with Roberts and Charlies signature. Looks like Negan takes control of the Saviors but how will he bash brains in without Lucille?
A link to the comics that will be released in the Heroes Megabox. Don’t look if you want them to be a surprise.
I don’t think he’s taking control. I think he’s dispensing justice. Rick have a new right hand man?
Long live the king!
Aw I wish buddy. Those were the days.
No No no no no no fuck this. Fuck this cover. Fuck the misleading.Fuck the symbolism. I’m sure this cover has nothing to do with what happens in this issue. IT’S A GODDAMN LIE!!! I’M ONTO YOU KIRKMAN.
This is sick….cant wait
NOOOO I REFUSE TO BELIEVE THIS!!! NEGAN IS A GOOD GUY!!!! HE’S A CHANGED MAN!!!!!! NO NEGAN DON’T YOU DARE SWITCH SIDES ON US!!!
I think the Saviors are going to forfeit due to a combination of reinforces aiding the ASZ (Rohan style), as well as the appearance of Negan.
That said, I’m cautious of the title “The Road’s End.” That could hint at so much – maybe Andrea dying, or rather the fall of ASZ, or simply the end of the Whisper War & conflict with the Saviors.
They’re totally hiding something behind this cover, however. I’m guessing Maggie will see Negan free, and thus cause the brief moment of victory to explode back into chaos. That, or Beta’s coming back. That’d be a nice surprise.
Alexandria Safe Zone
I present to you,Lucille 2 . Batter up!!
the description says “NOTHING IS MORE DAMAGING THAN MISPLACED TRUST” and i was thinking OMG THAT MEANS NEGAN BETRAYS RICK but i mean it could mean the saviors are the ones you shouldnt trust but i think negans gonna pretend to be on the saviors side and do a fake betrayal and then cut off johns hand he was choking dwight with and kill him >:D no one hurts my dwight
So is the long haired, butt crack showing guy Eugene? He does have a long braid now. If that was the case, then it is not only Saviors who are kneeling. Perhaps this means Negan is the new Rick, or as the metaphoric cover of 163, Negan has won what he wants, control over all the communities even if it is just behind the scenes.
Love the plumbers butt. Plus I’m pretty sure those are (what’s left) of the saviors. Dwight showed he couldn’t/didn’t want to lead and Negan’s proved he’s capable and I think he and Rick will have come to an understanding by then.
The other thing may be Rick not handling a certain someone not being around and just abdicating, though I doubt it.
I see Tara, John and Sherry there. Pretty much in agreement of what we can see at the cover where Dwight is punching John and the rest is “sleeping” in the grass. I guess heart-broken Rick will send Negan to prosecute and execute them.
What if this cover shows how much did Negan actually change? The old Negan would line up people who go against him and kill some of them or even all of them. But the new Negan changed his way and this cover is symbolizing him showing the Saviours the same mercy Rick showed him when he speared his life. The Road’s End could refere to Negan’s old way of life, to the Saviours, but also to Rick and Andrea’s story, to the communities’ old life and so much more. I’m loving this part of the story and when all these conflicts are resolved I hope we see a lot of Negan trying to fit in, living around all these people. And there’s still Negan and Maggie interaction to see. Can’t wait!
If this scene actually takes place I think after the Saviors bow to Negan maybe he will bow down to Rick, showing them the New World Order. Or the Saviors may attack Negan if they see him side to Rick.
Amazing cover, can’t wait!
I wonder if somehow Negan will die to the Saviors. Idk.
I love this epic cover! And we have 2 months to speculate on it 😛 I predict it may be the end of the Alexandria Safe Zone (finally). So excited about this one!
This cover is awesome. I don’t think Negan has gone bad though. Hopefully…..
I don’t think he’s back in control. The cover NEVER represents what happens in the actual volume. But I do think with Negan having proven himself in the battle he’s gonna be trusted slightly. Let’s not forget the herd is still coming. They’re gonna need Negan. Maybe they use Negan to get the Saviors who don’t like Rick to join in the fight. Now I’m gonna go back and read what everybody else thought ? See if Anybody feels the same way ?
I’ve been pondering this cover a lot and while it could be misleading or symbolic I’m getting a real afterlife vibe from the white background. What if the tough decision Rick and Andrea have to make is whether or not to kill Negan. How dark would it be if after all this time Rick decided Negan still had to go.
Feel like it’s another misleading cover
The kneeling thing has always been BS in the way that Negan likes his ego stroked and here he is, at it again, but did they just decide to kneel or did Negan request it? I don’t think Rick ever trusted Negan so there has to be trust there to begin with to have it misplaced. As far as I’m concerned Kirkman’s the driver of this “bus” and if I don’t like something I can always get off, but I’m staying till it’s over. I love the cover whether it means something or not. But if the old Negan is back than he’s going to have to die. We’re running out of people here! How about an intro to a few new characters?
