Poll: Favorite 127 Character Redesign

As we’ve discussed at length, issue #127 of The Walking Dead was a new beginning in many ways, including new looks for several characters. Vote below in our poll for which of the redesigns was your favorite:

Character Redesigns - A New Beginning
Which 127 character makeover did you like the most?

Also, in general, did you like all of the redesigns? What do you think makes a redesign work or not work? What are your predictions for what Michonne, Ezekiel, and Sophia will look like when they eventually show up (if they do)?

    IMO Michonne wont have dreads anymore.

    I love Jesus and Negan… I don’t like Rick, and I hate Carl ahaha

    I was hoping a seriously badass look for Carl

    Redesigns work when they align with the time frame. Although I love Jesus’s look & voted for him, I’d still like to see his hair in a ponytail instead of The Last Samurai. Rick’s look is the worst. I don’t think Ezekiel & Michonne will look much different, unless Michonne’s pregnant. Probably won’t recognize Sophia.

    I like all of them, except for Carl, I’m indifferent to him, Jesus clinches it though, going all last samurai. I might cry if michonne’s dreads are gone though.

    at least my predictions for Eugene being the most important member of society proved right, but i didnt expect him to be so clean cut! Now that hes in shape hes even more useful!!

    … Carl looks the furthest from punk as possible.

    Jesus looked bad-ass. I didn’t even recognize him when he first showed up.

    Rick’s looks would be more acceptable if he was in his mid-40s to early 50s, and not merely 33 years old! I would’ve wanted him to look less brittle, and perhaps sport a shorter, slick-back haircut with a trimmed beard.

    I hated Carl’s look and was rather disappointed. He looks like a confused lesbian hipster. I was hoping he’d be sporting a long haircut, and covering the right side of his face up with a bandana, and still wearing that cowboy hat regularly, and rocking a Clint Eastwood-style clothing or something, being like a post-apocalyptic, teenage gunslinger. Like a young Roland Deschain.

    Hopefully it’s just a phase and he’ll get there by the time it’s his turn to carry the series in the after-Rick times.

    I hope rick legs get better I don’t like him with the cane but other then that I like them all.

    Am I the only one who thinks Connie totally looks like Michonne in terms of personality and appearance ??(but with short hair)

  13. Brad Glaze May 16, 2014 at 12:42 pm - Reply

    Didnt recognize Jesus at first, his new look is my favorite so far. Not to sure about Rick. Negan was bad ass. Carls was very disappointing, needs to loose the glasses. Would like to see Maggie, Sophia, Michonne, and Ezekiel in the next issue.

    Carl looks like a lesbian hipster, i think he should get a more badass look

    I HATE Rick’s new character design, it’s awful.

  16. Bastet May 16, 2014 at 2:01 pm - Reply

    I thought Carl’s look was OK. It seems befitting that he would have outgrown the hat or not wearing it due to subliminal messages instilled by Negan. He may think that the glasses are cooler than wearing an eye patch & certainly more comfortable! As for the hair, it may not necessarily be Carl’s decision to wear it in that style.

    He may be drawn to look more like a badass in the future to match rebellion.

    With all that being said, I’m cool with the way he looks. I think we should give it time & see how it goes.

      What’s particularly getting on my nerves about those complaining about Carl’s new look is that he needs to be “badass.” Carl IS badass. He doesn’t need to look like it. He doesn’t want his scar in full view. He doesn’t WANT to look intimidating unless he needs to. He’s capable but ultimately he’s only 11. Everything face-wise serves to hide the giant hole in his head, both his long hair and his glasses. Maybe the glasses make him feel normal unlike a giant eye patch would. He doesn’t need to be a living breathing child warrior all the bloody time, you know? Let him get a little weird. He’s been so busy being cold and brutal he hasn’t had much time to develop a personality beyond what he needed. And let’s get real. An eye patch is understandable but I’m seeing a few saying he should cover it with a bandanna or something. That would make it look like Carl is TRYING to look badass and that’s lamer than not being badass at all.

        I think it takes a badass to go behind his father’s back & talk to Negan. I also believe that we’ll see it in the very near future in a way we haven’t seen before….coming from a kid on a different maturity level. The age range Carl is in calls for transitioning. The way he looks to me looks very realistic for the situation, maturity, and personality.

    I really thought the talk between Carl and Rick would be about something like: “Hey dad, I discovered I’m a girl trapped in a boy’s body”. He really looks like a girl (an ugly one). He deserves something badass for his outfit.

    Rick has been through so much his battle scars show it I like the new look .

    Not a fan of Old Man Rick with his Duck Dynasty beard.

  22. J. Moore May 16, 2014 at 5:50 pm - Reply

    If they had showed Negan before Jesus I would have been confused. I love Negan’s new look. Rick, meh. They are obviously trying to do a Douglas comparison. Far more interesting is the limp. Rick is moving from action hero to wise leader due to his increasing physical limitations.

    But what the heck is up with Carl? I don’t know where to begin.

    I predicted that Olivia would lose weight. I was right.

    Jesus had to go with a bun. It was only a matter of time before he ran out of conditioner. (Seriously, where was this guy getting conditioner? And why wasn’t he sharing?)

      Let me amend this. I like Rick’s beard and the claw. And I like the progression of him becoming (it seems) a different type of character. What really struck me as odd was the short hair. It just doesn’t hit me as an apocalypse haircut. But I do like the progression of the character.

    Not a huge fan of any redesigns… Would have liked to have had the story pick up right where it left off.

    I feel like I’m the only one is support of Carl’s new look. Also “lesbian hipster”? Really? Hispter, yes. Lesbian? You have to be a clod to actually use that as a physically descriptive term. Long live Carl, in whatever form. Sheriff hat, long hair, hipster glasses, or whatever else. He’ll always be a badass no matter what he wears.

    Rick looks like Douglas(rest in peace)… probably it has a reason, a mining… anyway I don´t like his beard (it´s too long) but the hair? I think it´s a really good idea. Carl…amm..pff

    Really I was SO surprised about the new redesdigns…. I like them all, but principaly Jesus, Negan and Rick, in that order… At first, I don’t recognize Jesus, I thougt that it was a new character or something like that LOL

    Not a fan of Rick’s new look at all. Liked the old look better. Carl infuriates me even more now. Jesus is pretty cool. Negan looks cool as well. But Rick…. Why?

    Carl looks dumb, thought it was a girl at one point. Don’t even recognize Rick, hate it. Jesus, although I dug his old look – the whole Samurai thing looks badass

    It’s a little bit disheartening to see everyone crapping on Carl over petty nitpickings (not that I’m wholly surprised.) Good to know that what makes a person a badass isn’t their actions and attitude, it’s their outside appearances. (Come on. a bandana? Is this the 80s?). I personally thought it was spot on to how a kid would REALLY look. LOTS of young boys his age like to get that look– the necklaces and the the long hair, you know? It’s very realistic. And the glasses, well. I am still a little confused as to if they’re for him to actually SEE with or if they’re sunglasses to hide the hole in his face. My only complaint is that I can’t tell how the hell they stay on his face when he only has one ear LOL. Anyway. They’ve settled into a society, and Carl is growing up, looking at girls now, getting ready to hit puberty. He wants to look good for girls, and he can’t do that with a dorky eyepatch or a big hole in his face.

    tldr i really loved Carl’s new look. And Rick does look too much like Douglas. He seems to have aged 30 years rather than 2. Everyone’s new looks are really very cool, and I liked that Eugene’s looking much more fit– not because being chunky is bad, but because it shows he’s been out working hard in the field. It’s nice to know he got in plenty of action!

    Please, explain me only ONE THING: Why the hell Rick looks like Varg Vikernes from Burzum?
