138 is the end of an arc. Will this Whisperer stuff get wrapped up? What will we learn? I’m digging the new baddies, what do you guys think so far?

BUT THAT 139 COVER! What do you guys think this all means? How big is the world at this point in the apocalypse? Are those Asian-style sails?

Have you guys commented on 135 yet? CARL!

See all the Skybound covers for March 2015! INVINCIBLE has a new trade dress!

    Yaaaaassssss!!!! So freaking excited for March. Both of these covers are AMAZING! Can’t wait to see what’s up with those boats, and I hope they don’t end the whisperers story too quickly…

    I’m thinking maybe the boats will have something to do with the kingdom.

    Seems to me the guy in 138 is Carl…can’t see his eyes…sorry his eye, i believe he’s the new leader of the whisperers!!!

    Holy damn I fucking love issue 139 COVER!!!!!

    I absolutely love this whole new beginning!!! The different cover style, stories and all!!! If anyone here is familiar with my YouTube channel (Make A Math Presents) just a heads up I started the first TWD Comic review on the channel and will have a lot more videos coming about the comic, not just reviews but topic discussions! and also, you can find me here tot chit chat with these great smart asses!!

    That last cover is awesome!!! I wonder if they will try to find countries that weren’t affected by the zombie virus.

    my jaw literally dropped when i saw the 139 cover. just imagine all the possibilities! maybe they’ll travel to Asia, or Russia, or Europe. but, on another note, i will be REALLY disappointed if they wrap up the whole whisperer arc up too quickly. they’re just so damn interesting. they have potential to be the biggest threat of the series so far, even bigger than negan. i hope its not resolved within the next couple volumes, that would be really anti climatic. anyways, totally love the new covers. I’m more excited for the future of the walking dead than i ever have been!

    Michonne puts an end to the Whisperer Boss, then sails away with Ezekiel to find a new & hopefully more peaceful life.

      Even tho issue 138 is the end of Trade paper back vol 23 I want the whisperers to go on!! I am loving this storyline and ALL of these covers have been really awesome lately!!

        I think the Whisperers will be around for a while. They are a force to be reckoned with & I imagine at the least, have probably changed the attitude/approach towards what may or may not be a roamer. Lydia makes it seem like they are similar to The Hunters, but just happen to have a much better MO. That’s material well worth extending & expanding upon!

    These covers are intriguing…but they come 2nd to #137! Oh, these damn tricky covers! I love ’em!

    I feel like this isn’t going to be as nice as it may seem.

    Murder and death and killing ahoy!

    okay i was thinking the Asian thing too, before i even red it at the end. so i definitely think these guys are chines, Korean, Japaneses, or something. I’m thinking this for two reasons, the sailboat on the left of 139 and the belt buckle in 138, sadly thought, not sure if Kirkman would tell us much about whats going on over there, he has said before that the only way we will figure that out is if Rick and co. were to go there themselves. anyway Lydia doesn’t look all that Asian and Lydia sound like more of an american name to me, but she could have been picked up when they arrived to america. also in Asia children are expected to grow up fast and she is only 16, but in Asian culture women also wouldn’t be sent out to fight as Lydia was. im really not sure what to think, who knows with Kirkman, cant wait to find out, hopefully whatever Maggie has to show Jesus might reveal a little more.

    Is that the Potomac River? I’m kinda getting a sunset vibe from this picture, which doesn’t make sense of they are on the East Coast.

    These are absolutely fantastic, so good for real, not only have the whisperers become my fav but the related covers are seriously the best, ive been doing covers as my phone lock and home screen since i started reading and theyve never been such top quality, fucking kudos

    This looks like it is gonna be getting good! I can’t wait to see more Carl, hope he makes it to 139. Hoping the Whisperers arc will end in 138, but I wouldn’t mind keeping Lydia around. I also hope they will be on the road again. Love it, keep up the good work!

    139 is Michone returning from her two year exploration of other continents. That is my prediction.

    • arethehorsesinthestable December 13, 2014 at 12:41 pm - Reply

      I’m totally with you on that one about Michonne exploring other areas via boat, and think you may be on to something- nice prediction!! A lot of people have been speculating about Michonne being the leader of The Whisperers but I do NOT think she is- if she was, wouldn’t she know where everyone lives? So if there was some sort of falling out she knows exactly where ASZ, The Hilltop, The Saviors and The Kingdom are and could easily track them down and not have to wander around.

    Man i hope this badass motherfucker had a sick name too, sometimes they introduce a super sick bastard and then give him/her a namr i cant get behind, like negan or magna, i love em but i hate their names straight up, please name him zeke

    Ok, Kirkman pretty much already gave away the boats and what they are in the past few Letter Hacks. A few months ago in the Hacks, someone mentioned the possibility of surviving on boats. Kirkman replied that they would be touching on this very soon.
    Then, in the Hacks for issue #135, someone had speculated that the Whisperer’s would not be able to safely sleep among walkers, so they must have some type of dwelling; they speculated that they were cave dwellers. Kirkman replied that they are not cave dwellers, but the letter-writer was on the right track with the dwelling bit.

    So, plain and simple; The Whisperer’s live on boats! Quite possibly even corral the herds of walkers on barges for safekeeping and transport.

    Also, the cover of #138; I really think it’s Michonne. She always wanted to get away from the sword, it would maker perfect sense for her to have transitioned to a gun, while the rest of the world goes to swords and daggers. Also, that belt-buckle matches Michonne’s eccentric style perfectly. Last but not least, the title of #138-“Face to Face”, to me means not only coming face to face with the leader of the Whisperer’s; but Rick and Michonne coming face to face for the first time after their falling out.

    Well we know Rick is alive in MArch.

    I really hope the Whisperers aren’t done with by 138, that’d be a massive waste of potential story, done with in just one arc.

    love the covers , I really want to be right on this but, the whisperers are an invading country,been saying it since they came and im still sticking to it 😉 please prove me right kirkman.

    Man i just realized these covers are like polar opposites, rick grimes embracing life and welcoming all vs the demon gypsy king who literally walks with the dead fucking daily and merks out anyone who comes into his land, im so gassed up for this arc its unreal, and i miss glenn

  27. carlseyehole December 12, 2014 at 6:45 pm - Reply

    hhmmmm i wonder why they would change the tag for 138 from “face to face” to “confrontation”

  28. harpo.AF December 12, 2014 at 7:32 pm - Reply

    I hope the boats cover isn’t actually some symbolic thing about Rick ‘sailing off into the Great Beyond’.

    When will that belt buckle be available in the Walking Dead online shop?

    Why do I wanna call that ship a Chinese Junk?

    And I think the dragon eating it’s own tail though a Greek motif [the Ouroboros has been said to have a meaning of infinity], the Dragon appears Asian.

    Do the arms link this man to the whisperers?

    Is this a bridge between the whisperers and the Junk?

    Great to see them open up a new frontier and possibly bring in a completely foreign community. Yet, we still have no news on Michonne/Dwight/Ezekiel. So many stories that can still be told, if only they would put out two issues a month.
