In Walking Dead #109, “No One Died” (UPDATE)

In the last few weeks, I’d received a number of reports that in the new Walking Dead, there would be a major character death. Even that Rick would be biting the big one. And Robert Kirkman’s hinting about the possibility about the TV show didn’t help.

But it wasn’t true.

At least not in this issue.

So you can be more at ease and enjoy the issue, set in the Hilltop and at Rick’s Place, with characters preparing an all out assault on Negan.

There is no assault yet. Which is why no one dies. Yet.

Hang on, didn’t they do that already?

And talking of Steve Coogan, “No one died”.

Anyway, if you burned through the US House Of Cards, revisited the UK House Of Cards, and it’s a whole week until the new Game Of Thrones, this may just fill that spot. People like cards, like a royal flush being assembled, and somewhere there’s a Joker in the pack.
