Walking Dead re-read is progressing along. I got to that one iconic death around issue 100 and both a) cried like a baby again, and b) forced myself not to actually look at the panels.
I still think it’s the only real misstep Kirkman made with the comics. It didn’t make sense because obviously he loved and had grand plans for Negan, but Negan killing ***** at the outset makes him completely irredeemable to the reader.
Also on a general note, what’s funny about Walking Dead is that I would never list it when talking top 10 comics of all time, my favorite comics ever, etc, and yet it is unique among books I buy in that the newest trade always goes to the top of the reading queue no matter what. I don’t really do that with any other book.
