So who reads the comics? I've finished the two compendiums which I believe to be issues 1-96. Love the comics and the show. I love how they've done the TV show a little differently from the comics. It helps keep me interested in the show and I like trying to find all the differences, some being subtle, and some major.

The comics are truly excellent though and are a must read even for fans of the TV series, even those who may not be into comics.

I do, kinda. I've read the story, basically, and am working my way through the comics.

If you truly are at Issue 96, you need to hurry up and get to #100. It's arguably one of the biggest issues on the series. You're also getting relatively close to my favorite character in the comics.

And I agree. I keep trying to tell the lady friend that they've changed so much in the show but she won't hear it.

I'm debating whether or not just to order all the individual issues from my local comic book store, or just waiting for the third compendium. Though it'd be a long wait waiting for that third compendium book.... Probably just order all the current issues.

What'd you guys think of that last episode of Season 5? Lifted the vast majority of that right out of the comics. Substituted Bob for Dale, which made sense. I honestly had it figured out when Bob wandered off outside of the church. I am also fairly sure Bob got bitten in the flooded basement and that's why he had that kiss me twice moment with Sasha inside the church. I think he was outside crying because he knew he his time is running out. That's my theory anyways. So I expect he'll be telling Gareth that he's "tainted meat" much like Dale told Chris in the comics.

My issue with the tainted meat is that it really doesn't have an affect on the Hunters. The "disease" could get cooked out if there even was one, and they've already said that the zombie "virus" isn't passed by the bites, it's just a normal infection happens more quickly around their bites because of all the decay and bacteria present.

That said, the Hunters likely aren't aware of that. So there's that.

Anyone else watched yesterday's episode yet?

 
TAINTED MEAT! Called that one. That was a great episode. This season has been flat out awesome so far. They really took the past two episodes right out of the comics. They did change up the location of the confrontation between Rick and his crew and the Hunters though but I liked it. It was awesome watching Gareth get destroyed with the red handled machete that Rick promised he was going to kill him with.

my problem with the episode was they didn't do enough to explain it. i mean it appeared the cannibals out smarted ricks group by dividing ricks group , only to have rick outsmart them by not going through with his plan to leave the church to go look for them ?
