    excited to see where this goes. also interesting to see Rick being treated like Tyler Durden.

    also, some folks don't seem to know what actual trolling is. something that makes you go "hmmm..." or "wait, that's not right!" is not a troll. it's called a twist. to troll is to bait someone with stupidity and/or misinformation for no other reason than to be a jerk.

    examples:
    "she's my sister????" = twist
    "TV Andrea is a way better character than the comic Andrea" = obvious troll.

    the whispers, whether they're real or not, are definitely not just for kicks.


    the whispers.


    the whiiiissspers...

    yeah, it's most likely a walker shepherd or something like that.

    I think it is humans who like Michonne figured out a way to move around with zombies - wearing body parts and using that to survive. I don't for once second think the zombies are talking. If they can talk - and they were talking in normal ways not like say Frankenstein's monster (me hungry, see people) which means they have normal human intelligence and could operate a firearm or use tools, etc.

    So, no, I don't think the zombies evolved and can talk now in the comic. The whisperers are for sure to my estimation humans who hide via the Michonne method. The end of the book was not even that freaky to me - so it was kind of a faint and I think a failed one because to a long time reader like myself it seems obvious. I could be wrong, but that's cool.

    My thinking also. I really don't think a fake cliffhanger works well for a series that is this serious in tone. It kind of feels fake and awkward. And I, like most readers, knew Magna was not going to fall for that because it is so obvious.

    Has anyone commented on Rick going wild beating up that - are they mounted guards or herders or something? - like he is crazy? That is more interesting to me than the Negan fake cliffhanger. But then in the next book we see Rick arrive at the compound and treated like he is Captain America.

    It would be more interesting to me if people hated on Rick and are afraid of him in a Saddam Hussein kind of way - clearly he now has this propensity for casual violence on his people. Did his kid Carl even flinch seeing dad beat the crap out of a person?

    But we are forced to concentrate on someone we just met named Magna and boring predictable Negan.

Kirkman has always hinted for years now, that there was more to the zombie herds and the zombies that just didn't seem active at all, just laying around. Maybe this is an exploration into that. It's different, but different isnt bad if done well. And Kirkman is the best Romero-verse zombie writer ever, so I am willing to let him do what he wants. Hell, even Romero had zombies evolving/non-devolved since his Day of the Dead wen Bub remembered pieces of his past and carried feelings for the Docs who took care of him and hatred for the soldiers.




    I don't like Magna at all yet, too distrusting for a group of people accepted into a community like this after being alone outside for so long. She can just leave if she distrusts them so much. But I was glad they showed her to be smart enough to read right through Negans story. Also, how great was Negans dejected reaction when he was left alone again?

    Love this issue.
    I don't think the zombies talk. I think it was humans that learned to survive using the Michonne method to camouflage themselves amongst the zombies.

    Kirkman has always stated that his world is based on the Night Of The Living Dead George Romero zombies. I always assumed the zombies becoming less active has to do with them wasting and rotting away. In just a few year - most zombies would just rot away and the meat would fall from their bones. A few cold winters of thaw and freeze cycles would turn flesh into mush. So I always assumed the dead being even less motivated to be zombies was a result of that.

    Of course we could be wrong and zombies get new abilities but I don't think so. I think it is just humans wearing dead body parts or something like that.

    But if they were people disguised as zombies they wouldn't talk, right? And if they were whispering, the guy wouldn't have listened.

    No answers to that mystery this issue, but some good development of characters. Still looking forward to jumping into the next arc, even though I've enjoyed this quieter period.

    didn't Romero make the Zombie movie with the boss Zombie who wasa pumping gas, remebering, and talking? If so, then this twist isn't so far fetched after all..

    Keep in mind it was raining too. When Rick and Glenn tried that way back, the smell washed off them. However, it could be a "weather-proof" zombie disguise. It should be interesting, either way.

    The whispering zombie thing wasn't really the big story in the latest issue, the two biggest things in the current issue in my opinion, they'd have to be what Rick said about Michonne, which sounds like something not so great happened between her and Rick, and Magna and her pals pulling something that I can't see not having consequences. But well, Negan could use some roommates.

    As for the talker walkers... If Jesus is shocked because he hears one talk or scream, then something is up because Jesus is a rock, he isn't the type who'd lose his mind and hear things.

    I'm surprised and concerned at the hopefully fake cliffhanger from this issue. I wonder if Rick's community has security easily accessible to handle this type of thing or how far they will take it. Andrea's been shit on a lot in the last arc, so the girl deserves a break.

    They don't seem to have any kind of police force, do they? Trouble in paradise. Its still within probably six months of the Negan thing, so they are in the late stages of the peaceful aftermath.

    Things I like about where this seems to be going:

    -Tables being turned by the new group.
    -Sophie being a bad ass!
    -Maggie finally moving on from Glenn, maybe.
    -Undead whispers.

    I think it has been more than six months. More like 2 years ish given the letters column flub and how much older Carl seems, among other things.

    Thought this was a really great issue. Definitely excited for the next couple issues, now.

    #132 was an amazing issue! Just to avoid spoiling anything for anyone:

    They finally resolved the cliffhanger from a few issues back with the talking zombies, they are indeed people with zombie masks made from zombies. The lead up to and revelation of this was simply amazing. Especially loved the panel with their initial shock when they though zombies were parrying their attacks with knives, simply epic.
    .
    Really interested to see where the story goes from this point onwards.

    When it comes to the latest issue... this sums it up..

    "it rubs the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again"

    I wasn't shocked by the "big reveal" entirely, I knew someone learned a new trick, I just didn't think he'd go the Buffalo Bill route, but I'm glad he did because it makes perfect sense. The question is, will they be the next threat? I can't imagine they have enough people to be a big threat but I do imagine they can play in a role in a regular or two biting it. Its been awhile since a core character has been killed, I think the last one was Abraham, I'd say it was his woman but she was never really a core character.
