“Falling Into Place”
Time to learn once and for all–is Princess friend or foe?
Let us know what you think of the cover in the comments!
I could care less about the princess….i hope she dies soon….she is annoying as fuck….
I disagree with you
I like the Princess but this is a weird kind of hook. There was no implication that she was on anyone’s “side” but I don’t buy her being some kind of secret villain either. Then again, these sorts of covers are usually generated to prevent more interesting goings-on from leaking (like this issue didn’t even feature Carl on guard but this meant we didn’t get a sense of what a pivotal figure Dwight would be).
I’m more intrigued by the location. It looks like somewhere new but then who are these people? They could conceivably be Aaron, Jesus, Siddiq and Maggie so perhaps the outskirts of Alexandria?
Yep, these covers are almost always meant to mislead the reader and/or represent a bigger picture issue going on in some way. Like the 186 issue cover with what looked like Michonne’s hand on the gun ends up being Rick, but the symbolism is thick on these covers so maybe Princess is some how at odds with the Hilltop and not agreeing with everything that is going down. We will have to wait and see!!
Since the princess last let Mercer know she would be leaving, And she was found on the road between the Commonwealth and Alexandria. . .
And the last we heard Maggie asked Siddiq to go to the Commonwealth could this be a meeting on the road? Maybe princess’s stomping ground?
