The Dead Cup Champion!!!

THE RESULTS ARE IN! After WAY too many rounds of voting (what was I thinking?), we have our Dead Cup champion! It’s only fitting that the last man standing as your favorite character from the comic is the man that started it all:

RICK GRIMES.

DEAD-CUP-Champion-s

A huge thanks to all of you that voted! Some of you cheeky bastards were suggesting that we were just running this contest so Robert would know who to kill off. Of course that’s ridiculous (Robert just kills off whoever wants), but it’s not THAT far from the truth. We did want to get a better feel for which characters in the comic you guys actually love. We have our hunches (Michonne, Rick, Carl) but it’s interesting to see what you really think (like I thought for sure Ezekiel would go further). And this helps inform some of our other business decisions, like merch and licensing. In short: there was a purpose to the whole thing. So thank you for taking the time to vote and for all the comments and discussion!

Make some noise below! If your favorite character didn’t make the grade, let us hear it!

Here’s the final bracket, with King Rick as champion:

    Thanks for all your hard work on this Brian, the Cup has been immense, I know its been a pain in the ass for you at times but we really do appriciate it. What can I say about the winner, I voted Carl, but Rick is one hell of a bad ass and rightly deserves his place at the top for now. I maintain my stance that Carl is the future but more than happy to let Rick have his moment. Thanks again Brain and you will be starting the TV championship next week right? 😉 #TheFuture

    I think Brian’s a cooler person than Lizzy but that’s just me.

    So seeing how much we love Glenn…even in spite of his abhorrent comic book death…can you please tell Kirkman NOT to kill TV series Glenn? I may be wrong but I think TV series Glenn is one of the few that the comic readers and show watchers love equally. Unlike Andrea, Carol, and the Governor to name a few. #VivaLaGlenn!

    I’m glad my man Rick won, but I’m bummed Negan didn’t make it further.

    I knew rick or Carl would win but my favorite comic book characters are rick and andrea. I really like her she is the best character by far

    This is how the battle played out: Rick had his trusty pistol while Carl had his AK-47. Carl was able to shoot Rick clean through the chest. Rick fell into a coma and when awoken found that Andrea had cheated on him for Carl. Rick has a fight with Carl when all of a sudden a bullet flies through Carl’s neck. Carl drops to the ground and drowns in his own blood. Rick turns to find that the shooter was none other than Billy, the boy that Carl supposedly killed. Rick forgives Andrea and they both raise Billy to be a formidable killer. The End!

    About time someone I voted for did good. I think Abraham and Negan should have went farther. A Abraham Tyresse throwdown would have been good so would of Negan vs The Governor

    that’s weakkk. Carl definitely should have won!

    Well, it may not have been Carl… But it at least it was Grimes. Rick is quite deserving.

    Also, post the percentages.

    welp this was great . I really appreciate all the hard work it was fun. Lets do more interactive things like this.

    It’s sad that Eugene was eliminated immediately… Same with Jesus. But Rick was always meant to win. ALL HAIL RICK!

    If they did a TV version of the tournament I would pick Daryl Dixon to win!

    Negan is secretly the winner! In the basement! In jail!

    Zeke lost a lot of stock when the tiger died.
