THE WALKING DEAD #157

STORY: ROBERT KIRKMAN
ART: CHARLIE ADLARD, STEFANO GAUDIANO & CLIFF RATHBURN
COVER: CHARLIE ADLARD & DAVE STEWART

AUGUST 3 | 32 PAGES | BLACK & WHITE | MATURE | $2.99

THE WHISPERER WAR PART 1
The time has come. The forces are aligning. The war has begun! Has Rick brought about the demise of everything he's built? Or will he triumph once again? Know this... there will be a cost.


______________________________________________



Tbh, I'll surprised if this arc doesn't bring about the death of Rick. He has ceased being an effective/trustworthy leader, and can no longer keep himself(let alone his people) in check. His decision to attack the Whisperers was a huge mistake from the beginning, and the 'plan' has gone to absolute shit ever since. Say what you will about the Whisperers, but they seem relatively benign when left unprovoked. Had Rick not brought conflict to them, his communities could have coexisted with the Whisperers just fine, imo.

...Though I suppose the real engineer behind this whole War is Negan. After all, he was originally responsible for planting the idea in Rick's head to begin with, lol. The dude is one hell of a tactician. thumb up

Covers generally don't hint at what happens in the comic but it makes me wonder what Rick is walking up to because of all of the others looking so scared.

Perhaps it is the Whisperer Horde? Or a skinned member of the group with one fo the Whisperers wearing their skin.

My favorite part of the series thus far is definitely the arc entitled "A New Beginning"(issues #127-144ish.) At the start of issue #127, there has been a 2 year time-lapse between issue #126(the conclusion of "All Out War".) It is just amazing to see how far the communities have come in that time. Those issues also introduce The Whisperers, and set the tone for "The Whisperer War" that is taking place right now.

A good starting point is issue #1. Only by reading the series from start-current, and seeing all of the events that have led up to this point, will you be able to understand the true depth of the series as a whole.

Nope, not yet. Lots of questions unanswered.

From wikia:

quote:
Robert Kirkman confirmed in Letter Hacks that Jesus' father is the reason he's highly skilled.


Source: http://walkingdead.wikia.com/wiki/P..._(Comic_Series)

Letter Hacks = letter column.

^ I've seen that on the Wiki as well, but was never able to find the issue it was supposedly stated in. But even if it was stated, it just seems like a play on the Jesus/God dynamic -- ie. Jesus' 'father'(God) taught him his mad skills. I could totally see Kirkman trolling us like that.

OR it's possible that his origin/backstory could change. I mean, in the Letter Hacks from issue #143, Kirkman stated that Negan was a used car salesman before the outbreak:

...But as we now know, he was canonically a PE teacher.

Hell, Kirkman has even stated in the Hacks section that he lies to fans all the time, lol.


As for expanding on Jesus' origin, Kirkman teased it in the Letter Hacks section of issue #135:

(please log in to view the image)

He actually followed through with the above teaser by giving us Negan's backstory -- so once that has wrapped up, hopefully we'll get a "Here's Jesus" backstory as well.

I predict/hope it'll be something like this:

Euge: My radio gf will save you all!

Negan: Fool! You have doomed us all!

*goes Abe on Euge, knocking him out (or killing him)*

I realize he's a valuable asset, but the urge to see him gone is too strong.

Covers tend to be misleading so often, your scenario of Euge saving the day is more likely, though.

Yeah, I think the Stephanie/Ohio thing was introduced as a 'Chekhov's Gun' of sorts. It will play a major role in *some* fashion before all is said and done, imo. Perhaps Eugene will call them in to save the day... But another likely scenario is: The Whisperers will win -- or they'll at least destroy the colonies during this war(Hilltop already looks f*cked, tbh.) In the aftermath, Eugene will tell the survivors of the Ohio community, and they'll ultimately travel there for sanctuary.

I'd actually prefer the latter plot, tbh. Lots of potential... Though it would be a real shame to see everything the communities have done get washed down the drain.


*If Eugene is killed, that'd honestly set the groups back by yearS. They owe most of their technological/strategical accomplishments solely to him. Eugene is the Reed Richards of TWD. thumb up

Yeah... I'd love to see Rick & Co. back on the road again.

If Whisperers do not succeed, then maybe the Saviours will deliver the final blow.

thumb up Another great point.

Aside from Dwight, the rest of the Saviors have been strangely absent from this war.

*Props to OAS for sending this info my way.


_______________________________________________



Anyway,
[SPOILER - highlight to read]: That is what I thought would happen -- the Whisperers winning just seemed inevitable(I mentioned this above.) While I am excited to see where the plot goes from here, it also REALLY sucks to lose the key communities... They had come SO far. Now it's just a matter of finding out who dies when this event reaches its crescendo. Kirkman has already promised multiple major character deaths.
