‘The Walking Dead’ Spoilers: Will Robert Kirkman’s Ending Have a Zombie Cure, or Kill all the Main Characters?

Season 5 of “The Walking Dead” kicks off in October and Entertainment Weekly sat down with executive producer – and Walking Dead comic book creator – Robert Kirkman to see if he knew how and when the series would end.

Kirkman explained that the TV series could last a really long time because there’s so much material it could pull from the comics. He just released comic book issue #130, while the show is still on issue #60-something.

“Luckily, because of the comic series, this isn’t a show where we’re going to run out of ideas,” Kirkman said. “This isn’t a show where it’s going to be, like, ‘Well, they’re clearly spinning their wheels just to keep the show going.’ It’s much more a matter of: Are we going to have enough seasons to get enough of the comic books into the show? I think that’s more the struggle for us. That’s what we’re hoping to find out in the next few years.”

As far as the comic book’s ending, Kirkman said he knows exactly how he wants to wrap up the zombie apocalypse. Will all the main characters be killed? Will there finally be a cure for the outbreak? Maybe the characters will learn how to live in a world with zombies, and it will a happily-ever-after type of feel?

Of course, Kirkman didn’t divulge any details but told EW that he came up with the idea about two years ago.

“I do know what I’m building towards, yes,” Kirkman said, referring to the comics. “I don’t know exactly what issue that’s going to fall on, per se, and I do have a lot of road laid out before that that is going to take a long time, but I certainly know exactly what I’m building to.”

He even said he has an idea of how the very last page of the comic would play out.

“From the very beginning I would always plot these big, long overreaching stories,” he said. “So it’d be like, oh, they’re going to get to the prison, then this is going to happen and then that’s going to happen and that’s going to happen. I wouldn’t really map out how many issues those were going to take, but I would always make sure that I had somewhere between two and ten years of story mapped out ahead of me.”

“About a year or two ago, I finally nailed it down exactly what I want the ending to be,” Kirkman added. “So now I’ve kind of got two trails of story going in my head. One working to where I’m at very far into the future, and one working from the end backwards. When these two stories meet, then I’ll know exactly how long the story is. I’m rapidly approaching that point.”

Season 5 of “The Walking Dead” premieres Sunday, Oct. 12 on AMC.

‘Walking Dead’ co-creator helps organize Cincinnati ComiCon

This is the second year for the Cincinnati ComiCon, running one week in advance of the Cincinnati Comic Expo, which itself began only in 2010. The distinction is that while the Cincinnati Comic Expo is a multigenre show, featuring celebrity guests from movies and TV shows, the Cincinnati ComiCon focuses entirely on comic books.

“It’s an art-centered show,” said Tony Moore, one of Cincinnati ComiCon’s organizers and a renowned comic book artist himself. “We want to make it the destination place for comic book collectors and comic book industry folks, and we do that by bringing in top-tier talent from all over the U.S. and Canada.”

Moore said he and other organizers structured Cincinnati ComiCon partially as a response to their own experiences visiting and attending conventions.

“A lot of it is simple things, like having a volunteer to watch over an artist’s table so he can take a bathroom break or get a snack,” he said. “Many times when you go to a show, you’re left to your own devices. We want to make sure everyone’s taken care of.”

To the general public, Moore’s most famous work is “The Walking Dead,” which would eventually be adapted into a cable series that has become one of the highest rated shows on cable television. Moore created the series with Robert Kirkman and did illustrations. Although he quit doing interior illustrations after the sixth issue, he continued to draw covers up to issue No. 24.

“I was able to grow and spread my wings as an illustrator,” Moore said. “I wasn’t as familiar with cover art duties (before “The Walking Dead”). It’s a separate job from interiors. It’s more design-heavy, where the challenge is coming up with a singular, eye-catching design. I had to work on developing those muscles.”

Due to his own body of work, Moore said he will spend some time greeting fans, but most of his time will be spent working the festival.

“I have a couple of signing periods per day, but mostly I’ll be trying to run stuff,” he said. “Since I live here, I do several other local signings per year.”

Highlights of the convention will include panel discussions, a “drink and draw,” where comic book creators can draw on the fly with the aid of a libation or two, a costume contest, and a sketch-off between two artists who pick a crowd-friendly topic and start riffing.

“The artist alley is really the backbone of the convention,” Moore said. “Our big ‘gets’ are Kelley Jones (“Batman,” “Sandman”), who rarely goes to conventions, and Tony Millionaire (“The Drinky Crow Show”), who’s considered indie comics royalty. We also have a surprising amount of local talent, which is very exciting.”

(Spoiler Alert) Will the Comic Books ‘Aaron’ be the Gay Character on The Walking Dead TV Show

250px-Aaron_125

There is all this talk about a gay character on The Walking Dead. That is all I see in about 90% of the articles I skim through. I don’t see the big deal, but as it is what it is, let’s see if we can answer that all encompassing question? Who will it be? Daryl…really I just don’t see it at all. He is a emotionally, physically, and worldly beaten down man. Who is now taking his power back, regardless of the circumstances., and doing an awesome job doing it. When he is finally in that place where he can afford the emotion needed for love…it will happen.

So let’s address the obvious source of all things Kirkman – his comic, and a man named Aaron. There are a few Walking Dead Wiki quotes below to give you the gist without spoiling too much!

Via Walking Dead Wiki – “Aaron is a character first encountered in Issue 67 of Image ComicsThe Walking Dead and is a resident of the Alexandria Safe-Zone community, formally working as a recruiter. He worked with Eric, who was his work partner and boyfriend.”

Now this does add up to the shows upcoming timeline pretty good. Though the show does add characters who appear in the Comic Book, they also have a habit of only basing characters off them, sometimes loosely, other times not so much. Then basing new story arcs off the comic book.

In the comic no one knows anything about Aaron post walker outbreak.

But he is a bad ass…

Via Walking Dead Wiki -“As one of Douglas‘ most trusted allies, Aaron’s job was to be one of two recruiters for Alexandria (along with Eric). Aaron would search for new survivors and he would watch them to see how they acted around others. Once he had watched them to get enough information about them, he would approach the survivors with no weapons and see if they would join the Alexandria Safe-Zone; if there was any attempt made at his life, Eric (who was listening in remotely) would come and kill them.[2] Those who accepted Aaron’s offer would travel with him back to Alexandria and meet Douglas who would ultimately decide if they could stay in the Safe-Zone. “

Not only is that one hell of a dangerous and risky job, it makes him the exact type person to fit into Rick’s group. Aaron, for more reasons than that, (I don’t want to give away too many spoilers), is the perfect fit for the group! Not to mentioned he is just one of those people everyone likes. I think (and Toby Greene) that he is the most obvious choice. Other than scripting a whole new character…the perfect choice!

Now who will play him is anyone’s guess!

 

I would like to thank Toby Greene for inspiring this article in our sometimes heated but pretty civil debates!
