The Walking Dead – A New Beginning | Comics

War is over and away from The Walking Dead, Rick Grimes now lives a peaceful life among in Alexandria with friends.

A survivor named Magna and her group watches a few Walkers from over a trailer hitched to horses as they were going through the woods. She tells everyone to lie down when it emerged to be a larger horde and when one of them nervously suggests that they should get out of here on the horses, she points out that they will never made it out.

Some of the zombies get to a horse and the rest started to push the trailer over to drop everyone on the ground. Magna tells everyone to draw their weapon and make a hole among the crowd. She almost got bit in the arm when one of the roamers caught her but saved at the nick of time by the arrival of Paul Monroe AKA Jesus and his cavalry.

He instructs her team to cut the horses loose and get to the tree line nearby while they distract the horde. Magna and her group follow the instruction but one of them was not too fortunate to survive the mob. Eugene Porter, Heath and Rosita Espinosa join Paul in driving the massive herd away to further east by working collectively.

Eugene points out that the herd has moved direction approximately 10 miles away from The Kingdom. Though the trouble is averted, some of them are not happy about losing one of them but invited to Alexandria Safe-Zone, the group came along.

In Alexandria, war has ended long ago and Rick Grimes lives a peaceful life as a family man with Andrea and his son Carl Grimes. He wears a prosthetic hand, grew a beard and has to walk with a cane these days. The community is rebuilt and has changed a lot too. They have new people living within those walls, got new crops, farms and houses as well.

Jesus brought in the survivors to Rick and they decide to stay after a brief introduction. He then heads to the munitions factory and asks Eugene not to go on herd duty anymore. Carl says that he wants to be a blacksmith and work with Earl Sutton of Hilltop Colony. Even though he does not want his boy to leave this place, he eventually agrees to consider it.

That night, Carl goes to the basement to talk to someone about class and after hour activities involving a girl he liked. The person in shadows offer him his perspective and when the boy was about to leave, asks if Carl still wants to kill him. He states his intentions are positive and that figure is revealed to be former leader of the Saviors, Negan.

The next day, Andrea is interviewing Magna and her friends on how they survived so long and how many were they. Later at their own place, she and her group talks among themselves about whether or not to trust Rick and his people because what they have here seems too good to be true and she thinks that Alexandria is hiding something.

Ken and Marco of the Hilltop Colony see a pack of horses on uncharted territory and even though the latter urges to go back, the former insists to bring them to Hilltop. A few zombies arriving out of nowhere caused him to fall from his horse and stuck underneath it. Marco carries Ken onto his horse after seeing a few more approaching.

They go a long way on horseback but then Ken falls off the horse and as his friend came to help, the horse ran off. These two then continue on foot and more Walkers begin to close in. Refusing to leave Ken back, Marco drags him to a nearby ditch and watches the horde leave. To their surprise, the duo hears the roamers whispering among them.

The Walking Dead – All Out War | Comics

Ever since Glenn died at the hands of Negan, Rick Grimes has been eagerly waiting to teach him a lesson. Last time, when Negan and his Saviors came to Alexandria Safe-Zone for supplies, things got a bit out of hand as Rick and his crew unsuccessfully tried to get the drop on Negan. He in turn, lines them up for execution but is forced to retreat for the timely intervention of Jesus, Ezekiel and Shiva.

The Walking Dead – All Out War | Comics

It is pretty evident that The Saviors will go to war against Alexandria and so, Rick and his allies prepares themselves for the oncoming conflict. However, Rick feels a bit of concerned as he has never done something this big and the last encounter with Saviors almost got Andrea killed. Along with The Kingdom and Hilltop forces at his side, Rick leads the crowd towards The Sanctuary.

Rick approaches Negan for a truce, which he declined and revealed Gregory's allegiance with him. But that brings no significant change to the scene and the war between the two parties broke in. The heavy firing draws attention of walkers nearby and they all started to form a herd and heads towards The Sanctuary. Rick was about to ram the fences of Negan's stronghold but Holly ditches him and took one for the team.

Sanctuary gets overrunned, Negan gets furious, Holly is captured, Ezekiel loses Shiva and both sides took heavy causalities. After dealing with the undead horde of his compound, Negan heads to Alexandria Safe-Zone for payback resulting major damage. Both of Rick and Negan's side came up with a new and improved plan to triumph over the enemy.

Now that she knows, it was a ploy to make everyone to think that Rick got soft; she is not too pleased about not knowing it previously.

The Walking Dead Vol 17 – Something To Fear

The seventeenth in the line of The Walking Dead storylines from Image Comics, “Something To Fear” is written by Robert Kirkman (Outcast, The Astounding Wolf-Man) and drawn by artist Charlie Adlard (Judge Dredd, The X-Files), following “A Larger World”. The story ran from issue #97-102 of the ongoing series and not only it features the 100th issue of the series but also includes the death of two major protagonist characters in an epic climax. The story is also adapted in the Season 6 finale episode of The Walking Dead TV Show titled "Last Day on Earth", where actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan played the role of Negan and kills one of the survivors in the same fashion depicted in the comics of whose identity is yet to be revealed in Season 7. Following Rick and his group’s encounter with The Governor, Negan is the next biggest villain in this entire series and perhaps even more complex of a character. The saga continues in the next part called “What Comes After”.
