So, Rick vs Negan...
Wow, I'm surpised that this thread hasn't gotten anymore post's considering how popular the comics are.
So anyway, I very recently got into the comics after having been a big fan of the Tv Show for so long. I bought a huge book that has the first 48 issues combined all into one book and I gotta say that I am loving this comic so far. Lots of interesting stuff has happend, though I'm curious as to what would possibly happen next since, ya know, 90% of the main cast is dead now after the 2nd prison attack, including Lori, Herschel and Tyreese amoung many others. Also, The Govenor is probably one of the best antagonist's I've seen in a long time now.
I really need to find a way to catch up now, since I hear that these comics have gotten up to issue 108. :P

The second compendium is already out. I'm kicking myself for not buying it with the first one because they where half off, that means I paid just 63 cents and issue.
Andrea is a fucking badass. The show is much worse off for having wasted that character.
I will agree on this, I she basically held off the first part of the governor's attack single handed. I think they could have held the prison had she not left with Dale and Michonne not gone after the governor with Tyreese.
I dropped the comics after issue 100. I just got tired of everything.
Okay. Well. I'm man enough to say that I totally didn't see Negan behaving like a (relatively) decent person with un-cartoonish villian-esque moral compass.
He's still a complete douchenozzle, but what he just did moves him that little bit up the moral ladder.
That said, Sex Vs. Violence: it's a real thing.
I still watch the show, but the comics (from what I remember), make it look like barf. I haven't been following them for a bit tho.
I'm reading these currently - and while I like the first season more, the characters are far more entertaining. Carol is the absolute best. It's neat seeing how much the show jaunted from the comic and all of parallels.
Can't wait for the Governor to show up. I'm at Issue 26, feels like it's going to be soon.

That was... that was so much more of a gut punch than the show. Jesus. Was Kirkman in a dark place when he wrote this.
The Here's Negan special is a delight. A beautiful insight to such a villainous character.
I forgot this thread existed lol
