UPDATED: The Walking Dead #154 Discussion

We’ve chosen Vegaiti as this month’s discussion winner! We love your idea that Negan’s trying to usurp Rick by offing Alpha himself. Also, we can’t exactly confirm it’s the end for Aaron.

THE WALKING DEAD issue 154 is out and hopefully you’ve bought it, read it, thought about it, meditated on it, brought it to book club, shared some laughs and a good cry, and enjoyed a glass of wine. That almost certainly being the case, let us know what you thought down below! We’ll be awarding our favorite comment with a Kirkman-signed copy this very issue! Come strong with those comments! Johnny and I will be picking our favorite next week(ish) for the prize after Johnny reminds me about 5 times to help him pick a winner.

PREVIOUSLY: Negan is loose. Michonne and Aaron follow his trail toward the Whisperers’ border. They don’t know that Brandon helped Negan escape. But Brandon doesn’t know that his plan for the Whisperers and Alexandria to kill each other differs from Negan’s… until Negan stabs him in the heart.

    Nalpha is a thing now? Oh boy! Also, thanks Kirkman for explaining that season 6 finale. I kind of see why they went for that now, and although I still don’t like it, I see that it did have a purpose and it wasn’t only for the cash. Marvelous issue guys! <3

    I love it. As much as I want to see Negan and Alpha hook up and make evil bad ass babies I don’t see it happening. He might not like violence against women but he’s got to gut her and become alpha himself. Don’t ask me why but I’m curious to see if Negan is packing as much meat as he says he does. Maybe he’s got a micro-penis and he’s over compensating?

    Not to beat a dead horse about the shit hanger but it was nice to see Kirkman speak to it in the letter hacks. I swear it’s like an abusive relationship. He might hurt me, but I LOVE him. Keep it coming guys.

    I hope Aaron ends up hooking up with McTwoknives. Him and Michonne were talking about his relationship right before! Coincidence? I think not.

    I doubt Aaron will be hooking up with anyone any time soon. That was a huge knife and I’m pretty sure it went all the way in.

    Do I laugh at Negans witty humour, or cry at the whole worlds misfortune if Nalpha becomes a thing?
    Amazing issue, ended up doing both.

    Negan was on top form this issue, some fantastic dialogue. Love his couldn’t give a shit attitude towards the Whisperers when he met them. Beta McTwoknives is the best thing ever, wanna he him and Negan on a road trip.
    So sad to see Aaron go (presumably he’s dead, that knife seemed to penetrate deeper than Eric ever did) had a feeling he was a goner didn’t want to be right. I so wanted Aaron and Jesus to be a thing :/

    Idea for a new TWD issue drinking game:
    * Take a shot every time Negan mentions his dick.
    By the end of the issue we should all have a nice, warm, fuzzy feeling courtesy of Negan’s cock.

    OH SNAP! Imagine Negan taking out the current Alpha to become the new Alpha with control of the whispers…

    This is more of a rant, but you guys really need to pick up the pace in the comics. All the things were happening really slowly and many of which are just filler material.

    I am not against slow pacing but I am very against filler that doesn’t actually do anything other than “filling the quota”. Magna has been in at least 30 issues and we still don’t really know her. Alpha doesn’t bring anything new to the table other than their cult for putting on the dead’s skins.

    You guys need to make the characters enticing enough for the readers to actually get into the story. Negan was admittedly interesting but something more has to happen.

    What a great issue, Negan and his jokes totally killed me! Too bad that big moron Beta McTwoknives stabbed Aaron, that knife was huge, but Darius survived a similar strike, so there’s always a chance. Anyway, Michonne has to kill them all.

    Uh, was anyone else reading Eugene’s pen-pal in a male voice this whole time, though?

  20. Maidenfan18 May 4, 2016 at 2:14 pm - Reply

    Another great issue! Loving this volume.

    Negan was cracking me up. Aaron is most definitely a goner, which I had figured was going to happen. I have a feeling Carl deciding to make the hilltop his home is going to have some serious repercussions. Not sure what, but something will come of that.

  21. Maidenfan18 May 4, 2016 at 2:16 pm - Reply

    Oh, and definitely surprised by the “voice” being a female. Always just assumed it was a guy and not really sure why. Still think Eugene is telling her too much, but I guess it’s good to tell her that they are training an army and are armed, just in case they are hostiles.

  22. omegamind13 May 4, 2016 at 2:29 pm - Reply

    Before they said Stephanie, it’s far enough in the future, I thought maybe it was Alicia on the radio. it would be interesting to see a ftwd/comic crossover.

  23. CameronR159 May 4, 2016 at 2:50 pm - Reply

    I love the Character design of Beta! Adlard did a great job with that. It’s great to see the Whisperers active in the story again. Im predicting that the people Eugene is talking to will be Ally’s because we already have the whisperers… Although ally’s can become enemy’s down the line, Who knows? I don’t think Negans true intentions are what they appear to be… I’m excited to see what will happen with Nalpha!

    Holy hell… things are heating up and I’m not talking about Negan’s new found love for Alhpa.

    Aaron is gone, Michonne in mortal peril… Each issue keeps getting better and better. This might even be more intriguing than all out war. And every panel with Andrea I worry is her last.

    It’s nice seeing someone bigger and more intimidating than Negan, and I wasn’t expecting the voice Eugene was talking to, to be a Stephanie.

    Great issue…. as always!

  26. Peer of the realm May 4, 2016 at 4:11 pm - Reply

    I loved this issue. Beta was sweet, he is to alpha what Dwight was to Negan. Does this mean that in issue 180 Mctwoknives is gonna be leading Rick’s army of whisperers? I’m glad you’re expanding the whisperers. I can honestly say that i’ve never been more excited for The Walking Dead than I am now.

    And Negan in this issue was too funny. I really missed his personality in the new beginning and this issue really brought it.

    I only hope that they’ll have a skin suit with a generous crotch area for Negan! Once that’s handled, we can have a great buddy cop partnership between him and Beta McTwoknives.

    Yeah all in favor of a Beta McTwoKnives figure complete with skin helmet, trench coat and two knives say aye? Beta’s introduction was probably the best thing about this issue: he was introduced near the beginning, and I literally yelled when he showed up behind Aaron and Michonne. I can’t wait to see more of this character in the future.

    Next issue’s gonna be dope. I mean, Negan and Alpha dialogue? That’ll be a great read. I am nervous, however, that all the talk Andrea had with Maggie may be alluding to her looming demise. I hope I’m wrong, but foreshadow’s a bitch.

    Negans gonna wrap Alpha in barbed wire, rub his dick all over her and use her to beat the holy fuckin fuckedy fuck out of Beta and the rest of the Whisperers silencing them all so Rick and Co doesn’t have to. Then Rick and Negan are gonna become bestfriends and do karate in a garage ;).

    You know you are negan when you bring balls to a knife fight. He is so cocky and arrogant and we should all hate him but he’s my favorite. I love the “that’s a fucking name. A stupid one…but it still counts” that and “Beta McTwoknives”. Omg. Hahah love him.

  37. seanmathews1 May 5, 2016 at 11:25 am - Reply

    I would have to think that all the creators have the most fun when they Write Negan’s lines and ink him in… Maybe not so much the inking part, as the shadowing on him seems fairly intricate a lot of times, but Kirkman and co. have to love him.

    I loved it! ANOTHER CLIFFHANGER!! haha I’ve been reading the comics for awhile now and from the first issue to this as well I love the show. I have got to say I loved this issue! I’m on the edge of every word and I haven’t been able to find that in a story in a very long time I’m thinking to Buffy The Vampire Slayer was the only thing to get my attention so it’s been awhile lol and this comic has been great I’m so excited to see what happens next and if people are whining about not knowing something right away like what happens or who dies then you are reading or watching the wrong type of deal here because nobody can know it all in the Apocalypse, duh. I can easily shed tears reading the comic as I do watching the show. I have to just give big credits to the creators for inventing something I and many find interesting and so worth while. I can’t imagine how hard it can be try and a build up characters that keep you going in a comic but you all are doing amazing…I mean how often do you get this real without really going there and that is attempted by many in my book but not really achieved and that’s huge! The characters written over time and being written and drawn are and have been phenomenal and are people you could actually see existing whether it’s in brutal fashion or more calmed nature or both, it’s just all amazing and you all have a dedicated fan here! Can’t wait to see what is coming next! Thanks for doing what you do.

    Another great FUCKING issue! Negan is hilarious! Talking about needing a skin suit that has room for his giant meaty dick, had me rolling! Part of me wonders if his actual plan is to get in w/ the Whisperers to help Rick. It would be out of character for Negan, but I think it’d be more about siding with people that will get him what he wants. If he can help Rick by fucking over the Whisperers it might buy his way back, whether in Alexandria or maybe even with leading the Saviors again. Keep up the great work. Can’t wait for next 155! #TeamNegan

    My thoughts on issue 154, first it was great to see Andrea back to the fold, she is such a big badass, I love her, I love how tough she has become since losing her sister, and Rick and her will be stronger in the coming battle.
    Next, of course, big N going into the whisperers domains, lol, I guess that since Rick told him about those scary fucks, he couldnt wait to meet these freaks, Negans been a curious guy looking for freaking apocalyptic stuff, when he met Carl, remember his face then? I would be curious as hell to see all these freaky stuff too, Who wouldnt, cant blame him. So, the dialogue between Beta McTwo Knives lol and big N, how he was quickly talked down by this big fella, showing who is the boss here, great, BTW, he doesnt have anything to lose, so what the hell. I was thinking why Negan did not Go the sanctuary first to try to be the leader again, instead of this but maybe he doesnt know Dwight quit, so he doesnt give a shit about them anymore, or maybe he wants to forge an alliance between these two freaks, I would go with the latter, Negan knows what he does, he would try to get into Alpha to fight Rick and take Alexandria from them, Nalpha will be a thing, I cant wait that. I really like this issue, especially Negans part, he is such a big fucking badass villain but we love him, and no he wont die soon, they would have killed him in AOW. So, I give it a 9/10. Thank you for reading, this is getting better and better, too bad we have to wait a whole month to get it, but it is worth every page in it.
    See ya!

    This was by far my favorite issue in a very long time. I laughed my ass off at Negan’s dialogue. He really is the greatest character going. I absolutely loved his interaction with the Whisperers and can’t wait to find out what his end game is.
    I was a little sad about what happened to Aaron. I would never list him as a favorite, but I always liked him.He’s a goner for sure. I know some people are debating it, but I’m certain.

  43. KingDead May 5, 2016 at 4:36 pm - Reply

    I’m voting DaniDWalkerFree13 for best comment. This was a great issue and I feel exactly like dani on this one. You guys working on the walking dead continue to amaze me. Comic and show. I hated the cliffhanger of season6 but I still loved season 6 and will be tuning into season 7. No matter who dies. Now this issue. I’m amped at. So it was Aaron on the cover. And it’s crazy that they were just talking about a relationship with Jesus before he may have been killed cause I thought that was just a great human moment for michonne and Aaron. Also thought it could possibly be a cool relationship. That being said…… Negan…… Negan Negan Negan lol. This guy’s a genius. He went into whisperes territories and shoved his dick down their throats and made them thank him for it. I mean come on who else better to infiltrate “There” like there’s nothing to it. This guy seems to get better and better every comic. I think he’s either A: plotting to take over the whisperes himself or B: take out Alpha in establishing “Trust” with Rick too maybe get his community back???!!! Maybe. Toss up. Rick was already thinking about freeing him. He already took out Brandon if I’m not mistaken. He was just a traitor anyway. Remember Negan didn’t even really have his mind made up in the cell. He just wanted to be out. This story is getting better and better and I’m loving it. Who knows. Maybe Stephanies’ people may be the key to it all in the end.. Great issue. Now the wait begins for 155. Keep it coming Kirkman and Co.

      Yeah, Negan negan negan right. I love him and hate him, he doesnt finish surprising us in his dialogues man, LOL, I think that he will end up taking the whisperers under his rule, I can bet on it, my gut tells me he will rule again these New freaks, along with Alpha, yes , with her, those two complements each other so well, you will see, now, I have my doubts toward what direction the comic is going cuz now there is an impending battle between The whisperers and Alexandria, but I think it will be fought through another ways, like a cold war If u know what I mean, not an AOW 2.0, no, that will be more of the same, so no, and now with Negans help and info, they are even more dangerous than before, but the whisperers are not looking to attack Alexandria, for what, they dont want anything from them, what the point of attacking them anyway, these people have their own philosophy of living, a freaky one but one anyway, so, Im Wondering where is the comics headed into the future, and what about the Kingdome and the sanctuary, what the hell is going on over there, we want to see too. Thank you.

    Negan never disappoints. I was sad for Aaron too. Maybe if he was as”well endowed” as Negan believes himself to be, then Negan could wear his skin!
    I wonder if Brandon is going to find the Hilltop travelers and bite them?
    It was interesting that Eugene’s new chat pal said that one of the guys they have in their camp used to ( maybe still does?) cover himself with “roamer” blood. Who else used the term roamers? Was it the Governor? And as for covering oneself with zombie blood, that sounds like Nick from FTWD.
    I hope that Alpha doesn’t play into Negan’s little love thing. I would think she would see him as a possible contender as the new Alpha and want to get him out of the picture, after she gets what she wants from him. Do not underestimate that lady, she is every bit as ruthless and twisted as Negan is.

  49. Vegaiti May 6, 2016 at 4:14 pm - Reply

    Normally there are more speculation in this forum. I can see clearly what is going on. Negan can see how people is kind of divided due to Rick and his decision after the whispers massacre so he is going to take care of alpha and bring her bolt head back to Rick and company… He want what Rick has , that is the way he is going to fight against him , showing the people that he is better. So people will try to make him in charge. Aaron RIP.

    The difference between People who wear dead people’s skin, whisper all the time and think random nonconsensual sex is okay’s sexy time and Negan’s “I don’t like sexual Violence” Sexy time being a real deal breaker in the coming, incredibly smelly romance.

    Negan’s humour never fails to make me laugh. He was like a puppy when he saw Alpha, but the only real relationship is Negan and Lucille! Still shocked that Beta stabbed Aaron, hoping he survives.

    aww, am I the only one holding out hope for Aaron? maybe I’m just biased because he’s one of my favourites, but I feel like he could survive that. I mean, Carl got shot in the face and made it. It’s not impossible. plus, doesn’t twd usually prefer sudden and brutal deaths? outside of walker bites, if a character gets murdered it’s usually done quickly, right? (Glenn, Lori, Shane, the heads-on-spikes-crew, etc) it would’ve been more dramatic for Beta Mctwoknives to stab him in the throat or head if they were going for a shocking death, rather than a gut-stab he could definitely survive, with medical attention. plus, it’d make for some drama for michonne to have to decide between pushing on to get Negan, or bringing Aaron back to get help.
    of course, they could just be drawing it out a bit because they didn’t have room for the death scene the wanted to give him, so maybe I’m just desperate. regardless, it’s probably a testament to how cool Beta is that I don’t even feel angry at him for possibly killing Aaron. even with Negan, who I (reluctantly) love, I’m still pissed at him for murdering Glenn.
    and it’ll be interesting to see Negan with the whisperers. I’m definitely thinking he’s playing them. possibly to act as a spy (a la Dwight) or try and take out Alpha to either get info for Rick (to get in his good books) or to take them over for himself. he’s been chilling in prison for two years, so we know he’s got the patience. it’ll be cool to see how his anti-rape stance holds up in that kind’ve brutal pro-rape community. I mean, didn’t he kill that guy for trying to rape Holly? and he’s mentioned before that he doesn’t condone rape. I wonder if that’ll affect his plans. I don’t know if he’d stand by and watch rape, especially if the victim’s a kid. then again, the guy’s more than a little nuts. either way, I’m looking forward to seeing him there

    Great issue as always. Negan is still hilarious. If you look at the confrontation Beta’s group has with Negan compared to the one they have with Michonne and Aaron you can tell that the Whisperers accept the powerful and cannot tolerate the weak (or I guess compassionate individual). I love Beta’s design. He is actually pretty scary looking and huge.
    Also, here is a picture I drew of one of my favorite covers.

    Im wondering what direction the comic is going to, and I thought of some possible scenarios:
    Negan and Alpha join forces, the whisperers and the saviors merge into a weird and freaky alliance just to destroy Rick and co. And take Alexandria for them and kill or ban Rick forever. For me it is the least posible outcome, since the whisperers dont wanna attack Rick cuz they dont give a shit about em, unless Negan gets Alpha to do so looking for revenge and show Rick who has the biggest balls.
    Another One, Negan takes over the whisperers since Alpha is too fucked up or tired or freaked and wants to give it up to someone up to it, and this is where big N takes the lead, if so, would he try to approach the saviors to take them all under his rule, or not, knowing that Dwight walked away, interesting sub scenario there, I would say big N will just let the saviors to be on their own and fuck them, deal with it.
    And for me another possible scenario is that big N, just joins the whisperers to become one more of them and follow Alpha lead, like Another one, just looking to survive in a world of Dead.
    I think that the second scenario is the most plausible one to happen, because neither Alpha nor Negan are interested in another confrontation against Rick, specially Negan, they just want to keep going in their twisted and freaky and tough way, and this is where I wonder what is the next big thing to happen in the comics, something nobody expects must come up so the usual stuff doesnt last for too long, and here is where we can come up with so many theories, new characters, new groups, new alliances, new strategies, unexpected deaths, unexpected betrayals, etc. I just hope that whatever twist the comic takes, be for the very best of it, since until now it has been an amazing storyline, thank you very much.

        You know what, yeah, it is a very plausible scenario now, Negan gets Alpha to do his bidding and attack Rick, once again to take revenge, but, I just dont see Alpha taking orders from Negan to do that, because what woulld the whisperers win in return? They dont want anything from Rick, so why attack them and risk it, for me it doesnt make sense antother all out war, unless Rick attacks first, and then yes, so, it would be so interesting to see what are Negan’s next steps in the comics, now he is the one whose storyline is the key to know where the comic is going from now on, what do you think about that?

          I don’t think an alpha is gonna team with anyone as an equal & there’s no way in hell Negan is up for following anyone’s leadership. So I like Vegaiti’s idea above… that he would bring Rick’s people what they want, which is Alpha’s head on a stick. Thereby, sweeping Rick’s people right out from under him. Negan will take out the strongest part of Rick, which is his support… one helluva way to enact revenge. Rick will have a few loyals but Negan would have Alexandria following him by choice & the Whisperers will follow the next alpha in the ranks, which could also be Negan. Then this could go in so many directions. I’m still thinking that a conflict with Carl… WITHIN Carl is coming & that’s gonna be a major thing. That connection Carl established with Negan remains in the back of my mind, so I’m always thinking that whatever’s coming up, it stems from that. And it doesn’t mean good things for Rick.
          Now anybody on this site can tell you how wild my imagination is & that I can’t predict worth a damn so… grain of salt.
          The comic is so awesome, isn’t it now?

    After reading your comment, I have to say a few things: I agree that a possible union between Alpha and Negan as leaders of the whisperers is highly improbable due to their priide and leader stuff in them, so that leads me to think how is Negan going to take over the whisperers and get rid of Alpha, for Negan it is possible that to happen, he has the balls to do it, but I just want to read it from his own words, and if that happens and he ends up leading the whisperers, WOW, I definitely want to read that, thats why Negan is the key piece now to understand the comic, because right now he is the fucking wild card, it is so unpredictable right now to guess what the hell he is planning to do now that he is with the whisperers.
    Yes, what you say about Negan taking Alpha’s head on a spike to Alexandria, after gaining his trust and then betraying her, it is awesome in a way so the Alexandrians will have their revenge, wont have to attack the whisperers, and will see Negan as a trustable guy, so yes, good idea, I like it very much.
    The idea about Carl for me now is kind of far-fetched, so far Carl is happy with Lydia in the Hilltop, something must happen for him to go and lead , say, the Saviors, a very twisted arc, and I dont see that happening for the trime being. OVER.

      Hmm… maybe Lydia is the tie-in to bring Carl into this conflict.
      What if Carl blames someone other than Negan for taking out Lydia’s mom?
      What if Rick dies during this shift in the winds & Carl gets hellbent on revenge?
      OVER (had to chuckle).

    Yeah, hadnt thought about that, what if Negan kills Alpha and then Lydia wants revenge for that, and she drags Carl into the conflict, right now it is the only way for me that we can see Carl involved in a battle, although how Carls feelings toward Negan will play out is also something to take into account,, right, Carl loves Negan more than even Rick, Carl is a badass as Negan, he is almost sure going to lead the saviors with Lydia in the future, good theory you have there my frined.

    Obviously Michonne is not dead. Kirkman doesn’t have the balls to kill her off. If she does die, hopefully Negan will be the one to kill her.
    Then Rick can finally see things can’t be like they were and he needs to end everyone that is a potential threat.

    Ey DannyK, Michonne is not a goner, she has to rule the kingdome now, she is too strong to die like that, there is plenty of her yet. Over!

    I almost can bet my ass that Negan is gonna fucking outlive the rest of them and be the sole King of The Walking Dead, of course with Lucille as his Queen.

    Do you guys think Rick is gonna send a full-blown attack on the whisperers? Or is he trying to buy some time and devise another strategy and avoid a direct battle against Alpha and co.? What role is Negan going to play now that he is with the “scary fucks”?

    I feel a little weird now, but am I the only one that remembers that Olivia was, I don’t know, washing (?) Negan and mentioned that he isn’t so big after all? Guess that pretty much confirmed Negan is over compensating. 😉

    I loved the issue! You could clearly feel that Kirkman enjoyed the opportunity to finally write Negan’s dialogues again. It was so cool when he didn’t take the Whisperers serious at all, commented on their sloppy disguises and mocked Beta for his “alternate” costume. 😀

    But no way Negan’s gonna join the Whisperers, that’s just not him. He’s planning something!

      If Negan’s planning anything with the Whisperers it will be to take them over.

      • leo biderman May 20, 2016 at 5:24 am - Reply

        That could happen if he tries to take down Alpha, I have muy doubts that may take place since what would be the point of taking over the whisperers, a new attack on Rick, to take Alexandria, a new AOW, I dont think so, but again, it is a possible and valid scenario.

      • leo biderman May 21, 2016 at 6:25 am - Reply

        Yeah, it could be, lets suppose he does it, then what, attack Rick again to take Alexandria from him, for me it is very repetitive of AOW, I think Negan is like a Ricks Secret agent, like 007, infiltrating and getting the whisperers unknown secrets.
        For me, he will gain Alphas trust trying to mate ver and then betray them and go to Rick with all that info at hand, it my theory, but yours is also valid, but I would like to read the reasons, greetings.

      Exactly! Negan doesnt fit in the whisperers, he is too fucking loud, I agree, he is up to something man, maybe trying to infiltrate them and get their unknown secrets, and then try something to gain Ricks trust, but definetely he is not a whisperer at all, and muy theory is that he is trying to gain Ricks trust, and he could be very useful now in the coming Whisperer War, Great, I cant wait till June 1st, these two coming issues will be the key to understand Negans plan.

    I don’t know if it’s just me, but I think Negan is trying to regain control of a major group, in this case the Whisperers, and attack the four main safezones. I am not sure what Negan is up to, but I definitely don’t see him following any orders any time soon. I think he will kill Alpha or Alpha will kill Negan, but I don’t see them working well together.

    Another thing is that we’ve already seen how Alpha acts with Lydia in Rick’s hands. Although she tries to act strong, I think she will crack. Again, this will cause strain for Lydia and Carl. I also get the feeling that Negan might show no sympathy and end up causing to become enemies with Alpha, causing my theory above.

    I just don’t see this whole thing working out well. Super excited for the new issue!!!

    • leo biderman May 21, 2016 at 7:31 pm - Reply

      Yeah, it is another possible scenario, in this point everything is possible to happen since Negan is the wild card , and that is pretty unpredictable how everything will turn out, but still have my doubts that Negan will fit in with the whisperers, it is just so far-fetched, Negan is too loud LOL and foul-mouthed to be a whisperer I mean, I dont see how that will work, thats why my prediction is that he is like a secret agent trying to obtain some secrets from the whisperers to use them against them in the coming war.

    • leo biderman May 21, 2016 at 7:40 pm - Reply

      Thats a good point, Negan wont take orders from anyone, he is the alpha male of the group, always, so if he is up to take over the whisperers, he will have to either kill Alpha and maybe Beta or put them under his rule to command the whisperers against Rick in the coming whisperer war, I would love to see Negan taking over the whisperers and leading again a major group of lunatics, LOL, I just dont want Negan to die, I hope he doesnt die until the very end, And I believe that this character still has a lot to do in the storyline, Negan is Negan, LOL.
