Now that we’ve reached the midpoint of All Out War, you’ve gotta be thinking it… who isn’t making it to the end? We’ve already had a couple notable deaths (Eric, Holly, Shiva) but I think we can all agree that we haven’t lost anyone major.
Place your computer mouse where your mouth is and tell us which major characters you think are most likely to bite the dust in the conclusion of All Out War! And remember, you can vote for more than one character:[yop_poll id=”12″]
Also, if you think we’re missing someone who you think is obviously not going to make it out alive, feel free to comment below and let us know!
i really like dwitght he is like daryl from tv series , but i’m sure negan will find out his betrayal and will kill him
I think Dwight is going to be around for a while. Although the upcoming cover with Dwight holding his crossbow at Rick’s back raises questions. I think its just another Kirkman prereleased cover fake out though.
Long live Negan!
Negan must die! lol
jesus is salvation rsrsrs, he is the best, but I think I should not have said that to the guy who said that the best is the worst deaths …
Dwight is one of my favorite characters since he started to help the Survivors, Hilltop and the Kingdom, but I think in some way he’s not gonna make it… sadly.
Andrea gets killed by Negan! Jesus gets killed by Dwight! 😛
I seriously doubt Jesus, who is essentially the Daryl of the comic at the moment, gets taken out so soon. The way I see it, Jesus is filling the role of Abraham and Survivors definitely need an Abraham on their team. However, while I’m not sure that it will be by Negan, I think either Andrea or Rick will die. I’m heavily leaning towards Andrea’s death coming soon.
lol i really hope he doesnt but what happens to bad asses in TWD universe? they become your favorite characters but only for about 30ish issues until they get their heads chopped off or an arrow through the eye 😛 warrior like male characters always seem to get killed off. (even richard from the kingdom and the govs 2 big asss henchman went down quick)kirkman must have been bullied by jocks haha. and jesus is daryl in a way if u compare the show and the comics at this point but everyone already knows that dwight is essentially daryl and kirkman even hinted towards this(i think? lol, well the crossbow the vest and the hickness are comparable at least). Abraham was such a big advantage for the saviors, he knew war strategy! Now that hes gone the only advantage the “big 3” really have is Jesus’s ability to do things that are going to be impossible to make look as cool on screen. point is when they need their warriors the most, kirkman kills them so others have to step out of their comfort zone and step up
When I say Jesus is the Daryl of the comic I’m referring to his popularity among the fanbase. Daryl and Dwight are nothing alike other than they both wield a crossbow. Kirkman, at least to my knowledge, never compared Dwight to Daryl. The comment he made was when the something to fear arc was just being introduced and a fan asked if Daryl would ever make it to the comic, he said if you look closely at the upcoming issue there is a character prominently holding a crossbow. It was just another teaser cover fakeout he’s so famous for. I was at a panel last weekend where Kirkman spoke and he said if there is one character from the show that he would bring to the book it would he Daryl. He also said he likes having the character only exist on the tv show but he hasn’t completely ruled out bringing him into the book at some point in the future.
we would have to wait 3 years or so then because kirkman wrote up to issue 200 already
What you are saying is not entirely accurate. He definitely has the story mapped out for about 200 issues and he uses that as a general guideline. If you check out some articles or watch videos of him talking about it, he says that he has a general framework for the story to around 200 or so issues, but that he changes the framework as he scripts out the stories for Charlie Adlard to draw. I’ve heard him speak at various comic con panels and he said he has changed major points of the story that he had mapped out years ago, like killing characters way earlier than he originally wrote and other characters end up living longer than he wrote. For example, Abraham wasn’t originally written to die as early as he did, but Kirkman changed it up and killed him off to maintain the quality and his vision of where the story should go.
I think Ezekiel will not make it out the war even though I hope he does so he can redeem himself because I really liked his character .
The way the story seems to be heading is that members of the survivors are set to take lead of each of the communities. Maggie already has Hilltop. Ezekiel will probably di leaving Michonne in charge of kingdom. Dwight will probably take over saviors and ally with the other communities after Negan gets his head bashd in with Lucille. I’m on the fence about Rick actually dying , but if he does we may see Andrea leading survivors. I’m not sure thoug, I’ve been convinced that Andrea will die soon for about 15 issues now.
I like your ideas about who will be leading the factions interesting .
Wow! I never thought of that. Perfect.
one flaw no one would ever trust Dwight to run a community he is a double crosser
I really hope this isn’t the punch line to the arc… Another major character death… We were promised something groundbreaking!!
A war with 4 diffrerent factions and double agents, released almost every 2 weeks for 6 months, in TWD seems kind of ground breaking to me.
Groundbreaking in terms of volume of issues??? Jesus… (pun intended) that would be the ultimate in corporate bollocks speak… So they can sell twice the amount of comics in the same amount of time? I think I speak for everyone when I say we’d prefer 1 great comic instead of 2 mediocre issues. But that’s not the point, the quality in the arc so far has been sound. The point is that volumes of comics and more major character deaths don’t qualify as “groundbreaking”. If anything it’s decidedly un-groundbreaking!
*Are you having a fit?
I agree with A Hidell but he needs to chill the fucking fuck out!!
It’s groundbreaking in the terms that 1) we have never seen a war with a 4 faction dynamic in TWD. We have major characters splintering off from survivors and taking lead of entire communities 2) we have concepts such as double agents working within several different factions 3) we have strategic battles taking place that wins and losses completely change the outcome of the story 4) if you read the letter hacks you will see fans constantly complaining that too little content is released each month. Kirkman has steadfastly been against more than 22 pages per month and now we are getting double the content and the story has been solid for the majority of the issues. I’d argue that there are a bunch of single monthly issues over the years that have really crappy content, and we only got one crappy content issue for those months. I’ve now made several arguments that have nothing to do with major character deaths, which seems to be your main complaint. Your second complaint is that you would rather have 1 quality issue over 2 low quality issues per month, then you completely invalidate your complaint by saying that the issues have been sound. So I just have to ask you what exactly do you qualify as a groundbreaking event in the TWD universe? The arc is only half over and there is still a lot of unrelease content that may add to events which may be considered groundbreaking for this particular series.
All I’m saying is that I haven’t seen anything I’d term ‘groundbreaking’. What you say above about factions and double agents, that’s ‘new’ just as every issue is new. Having more issues in a shorter time frame isn’t groundbreaking, in fact doesn’t relate to anything regarding the TWD world and it’s content.
Groundbreaking is certainly not major character deaths. It’s a heavily worn path in TWD. What would count would be something that goes to the heart of the universe or the characters. Maybe an explanation as to why infection occurred, that something fundamental we had taken for granted for many years was not correct, anything that shifts the emphasis fundamentally. I guess the death of the remaining major characters could achieve that from #127 onwards but their deaths, of themselves, will not be anything that would achieve that.
Anyway this is all a matter of opinion isn’t it? You see something ‘groundbreaking’ where I don’t…
I’m fairly certain no one considers major character deaths in TWD groundbreaking, so I don’t understand why you keep bring that up. You just went off on a major rant in your original commment so I was giving you legitimate reasons that some people may consider groundbreaking within the TWD universe, things which are innovative enough to change the dynamic of the story and the characters. That’s essentially what groundbreaking means in a technical sense. Since you are arguing nothing I brought up is groundbreaking, then I’m just asking what kind of hypothetical situations would have to occur to be considered groundbreaking in your personal opinion? Like I said before, we are only half way through the arc and the things I mentioned can certainly be considered groundbreaking, within the TWD universe, to many people. There are certainly more plot twists which will occur in the second half.
I think we had better agree to disagree or we’ll end up saying the same things over and over!
Okay let’s disagree, but that’s a major cop out on your end after the rediculous rant in your original comment. You have not really provided any compelling to answers or counterpoints to any of the points I brought up, while I did provide compelling counters to your points.
I’ve answered all your points you just don’t like them!!!
I think the problem is that you don’t understand what the term groundbreaking actually means:
: introducing new ideas or methods
: markedly innovative
: introducing or using new ideas or methods
: having new ideas about how something can be done
Right, my last post on this:
Oxford English Dictionary says groundbreaking is:
Innovative or pioneering
Innovative: original and creative thinking
Pioneering: new ideas and methods
I stand by what I’ve said. I think the balance of who is ranting now has rather tipped in your favour.
Chill, and just accept people don’t agree with you
I accept that some people don’t agree with me and that you don’t agree with the dictionary; I was just asking that you expand on your opinions that my points don’t equate to groundbreaking within the TWD universe, other than just saying it’s not groundbreaking. I think I gave valid points and I explained them. You just said no I don’t agree with the dictionary definitions of groundbreaking.
Possible Spoiler alert.
When I was reading the discussion on #120 someone posted that Holly should have been on the cover. Which got me thinking, why was it Michonne? I believe the covers will act as a memorial for every significant character who dies during the war. According to my theory, that would mean Rick, Holly, Jesus, Gregory, Dwight, Michonne, Negan, Heath, Ezekiel and Maggie will die in All Out War. Also, according to my theory, Eric & Denise will be on the final 2 covers.
they already released previews for those two covers they are not on them .
Thank you, my theory has been disproved!
LOL, great answer!
I think Negan will kill Andrea and Jesus kills Dwight.
Who thinks Rick will die in #125?
everyone thinks rick will die that issue. i predict that negans about to kill rick then Andrea will intervene somehow and end up sacrificing herself to save rick…Orrrrr maybe Jesus sacrifices himself for rick because he knows rick is the REAL second coming! :p
I COULD SEE JESUS SACRIFICING HIM SELF FOR RICK
I see Rick clinging to life and as Negan is about to preform his Fatality move with Lucile we will see Andrea save Rick and get herself killed.
If and when Rick dies, it’s going to happen in an issue where no one expects or sees it coming.
I’m gonna say that since Eric, Shiva & Holly have died, that the rest will likely be as follows;
Eugene, Denise, Ezikiel, Dwight & Negan.
People who could possibly die;
Jesus, Heath, Michonne, Andrea, Carl, Rick, Maggie
I’m the only one who thinks shiva is alive?. Weel my list is. Negan,michonne,ezekiel,aaron,rosita and eugene
I’ve been wondering that myself
If reading the comics thought me anything is that Rick can not be happy. I really doubt that Carl will be killed so I think it might be Andrea. Andrea is my favorite character and I don’t want to see her go. Jesus is also likely to die like all the bad asses before him did. I am talking about Tyrese and Abraham. I feel like Maggie is safe until she has the baby.GOD I PRAY ITS NOT ANDREA!
🙁 ;( why do the bad ass characters have to die all the time :((( i think jesus and andrea are toast, but now i think michonne will survive and that makes me feel a little bit better…or im just ganna be really heartbroken 😛
I’m saying Ezekiel and Dwight, I actually think Negan survives and that they actually agree to leave each other alone in an armistice. I feel like Kirkman’s set the character as more flexible/pragmatic than the likes of The Governor. Jesus dying would be sooo wasted, he’s got so much texture to him that’s yet to be revealed, I could see him lasting a couple of hundred issues.
I’ve a feeling Dwight may survive and infact the next storyline he’ll team up with Rick’s crew and eventually turn against them? Definitely think Negan and Ezekiel are goners though!
Rick won’t die. Robert Kirkman says the goal of TWD is to stay with Rick for as long as humanly possible and the comics will be the chronicles of the years of Ricks life. That statement alone has me on the fence as to wether or not Rick will ever die…would be pretty cool to see Carl take over though.
You can’t kill Rick!! No fucking way dude, Grimey is one of the most well-balanced, empathetic and downright muthafucking gangsta characters in comics. I know “no one is safe” in TWD, but Rick?? Nuh-huh. None of the other characters are interesting enough to carry this behemoth.
Interesting fact – Andrew Lincoln (plays Rick in the show) was previously in ‘Teachers’ which was shot in the school my mum used to go to, in Bristol (UK). And I once saw him in my local pub (pre-TWD obviously!).
In my opinion the only character who can’t die is Carl.
My reasoning for this is that he is the only reason
for Rick to go on, if he died Rick would go over
the edge and there would be no coming back
for him. I could see Kirkman killing off Rick as
it is something we never would expect or believe
could happen, but as it is always said:
“No One Is Safe”. I can see Jesus stepping
in as a surrogate father to Carl. I think Michonne
might not survive this war either. I think when
she told Rick she was tired that that was
a hint her time was over.
