The final Walking Dead comic covers for 2018 have been revealed. The regular cover for Issue 186 features a dramatic scene where Rick and the Commonwealth Governor Pamela Milton cower as someone, possibly Mercer, holds them at gunpoint. Titled “The Powder Keg,” December’s issue will surely end the year with a bang.
The Bill Sienkiewicz cover, which is the final variant celebrating the series’ 15th anniversary, features a devilish-looking Negan peering forward. It’s only fitting that the last variant highlight The Walking Dead’s most notorious villain. Check out the cover below and let us know in the comments what YOU think will happen in Issue 186.

What are your reactions to December’s covers? Which Bill Sienkiewicz variant has been your favorite? Let us know in the comments!
Looks like Michonne’s Gloves, maybe she has grabbed a gun and took up the cause!! TAKE OUT THE GOVERNOR AND HER SON!!! The Negan cover is bad ass too!!
Yup ! And the skin on the hand seems dark toned… The wrist is armor-free, so no, I don’t think it’s Mercer, although he would have his reasons, but this method is not subtle enough for him.
What bothers me is that these gloves don’t match with Michonne’s… (Here’s a pic from #178)
Continuity error ?
Nobody’s thinking Dwight??
While I see the hand is dark skinned, I do recall a line about Carl that reminds me of the title of this issue.
“Kid’s a goddamn powder keg waiting to go off. It’s too dangerous having him here.”
Lol, just a fun thought. Carl would never point a gun at Rick and mean it. But it would be interesting since a lot of people want Carl to meet the new governor’s spoiled brat of a son. I could see that little shitstain giving Carl incentive not to like these Commonwealth elites.
Issue #92 Michonne on the cover with pretty much the same gloves…
