    "The Walking Dead Comic Books Will Outlast TV Show, Ending Must Stay Secret - RK"





    "...RK was on Sundance’s The Writers' Room on April 25, and he was asked if he thought about how he wants the TV series to end.

    "My desire is that the comic book series would run for three, four hundred issues, and television shows historically don't last that long,” RK said. “So I have often considered the fact that the television show is going to end before the comic book series ends. Like, I actually do want the comic book series to outlast the show, and because of that I can never tell anyone involved in the show what my plans for ending the series are, because there's the very real possibility that it could end up on the show before I get to do it in the comics, which is not how I want to do things...."

    "...In July 2012, RK talked to Daily Dead about the comics: “I definitely think that Rick has been the anchor for the series and may be the anchor of the series for a long time. I do have plans for him and I know where his story is going, but I promise that Rick will not survive the entire run of the book...”

    Good stuff. Good stuff.

    That's some pretty big words for Kirkman to say. I'm pretty sure AMC is going to milk, milk, milk until the ratings drop substantially haha.

    As long as Rick's death isn't just for shock value I'm okay with it. Maybe Negan will mind control him and he will turn into the Superior Rick Grimes.

    I used to trust Kirkman with the comics, but after All Out Fail, I just can't. I doubt he even has an ending in mind.

    The TV can end with All Out War. Perfect timing IMO.

    OF COURSE AMC will bleed the show dry but there is no way it won't dry up ratings wise while the comic is still commercially viable. I think the show has finally peaked in the ratings. I don't see it growing bigger in the ratings although I don't see it dropping in the ratings anytime soon either but it is going to happen eventually...within a few years.

    I have no doubt the comic will continue on longer than the show even if the show were to last 12 seasons.

    I'm glad RK is keeping his ending secret from AMC.
