    Andrea (Comic book) death in latest book

    https://www.forbes.com/sites/erikkai.../#587cc7b64c0d

    So Andrea (Rick's love interest in the comics) is dead. I hope this doesn't translate to his love interest in the TV Series. Michonne is one of my favorite characters.

    This will for sure be Michonne's death on the show in a few seasons.

    I'm not sure this will translate to the show because very few main characters have gotten their comic book death, but either way I would be fine with it. I would rather have had Richonne than never see them go canon at all.

    They love to switch out the character deaths. Tyrese's death went to Hershel; Denise's arrow in the show was Abe's in the comic. Sasha's death seemed to be a homage to Holly's comic book death. And even with this listing off the top of my head, I bet I missed a death switch-a-roo.
    So, DG may call it quits and having the Andrea death available as a tearjerker is good. It was a emotional moment in the comics and if Michonne goes out like that, we'll it will be a satisfying run. Yet, if we look at the odds and who has gotten the pieces of Michonne's comic book arc, I'd lay a bet that Carol might exit before Michonne.

    When it's a big death they usually try to keep it close to the chest. Shane was still relatively soon by Rick/Carl. Governor still killed Hershel. Abraham died really close to his comic death. Glenn was straight out of the comic.

    Tyreese was changed but he also showed up much later in the show than in the comic. Lori was also changed early but that was Mazarra, not Gimple.

    "'Walking Dead': How Main Characters Die on the Show vs. the Comics"

    Often, the two tales intersect perfectly, with the show's characters often looking like Adlard's illustrations come to life. (Here's looking at you, Michonne and Negan.) The general structures of the stories also align fairly frequently; in both the show and the comics, Rick's group of survivors begin in Atlanta, spend time on Hershel's farm, find a prison and engage in a war with Woodbury, encounter crazy cannibals on the road, eventually arrive at Alexandria, and come to a fateful collision with Negan and his band of Saviors.

    But there's one major area of divergence between the show and the comics: death. While both versions of Walking Dead feature copious amounts of bloodshed and heartbreak, the deaths are typically remixed during the adaptation process. Very few major characters die in the comics and on the show in the exact same way — which makes the brain-bashing deaths in the season seven premiere all the more notable.

    1. The show's Sophia died offscreen, discovered as a zombie in Hershel's barn. In the comics, Sophia remains alive and well.

    2. The show's Dale was eviscerated by a zombie and subsequently killed by a merciful Daryl Dixon. In the comics, Dale died the way Bob Stookey died on the show: bitten by a zombie, partly eaten by cannibals, and eventually succumbing to zombie fever.

    3. The show's Shane was stabbed in the heart by Rick. In the comics, Carl shoots Shane in order to protect his father. The show offered a wink to that change by having Carl shoot the zombified Shane.

    4. The show's Carol is still alive and well, a far cry from her comic book counterpart. In the comics, Carol effectively commits suicide, allowing herself to be killed by a walker. In fairness, the two versions of the character share almost nothing in common beyond their first name and backstory.

    5. The show's Lori died in childbirth during the group's earliest days at the prison. In the comics, Lori dies in the prison as well, but it happens during the Governor's assault. Baby Judith, sadly, does not survive the Governor's attack in the comics, either.

    6. Andrea died at the end of season three, shooting herself in the head after a walker bite. She's very much alive and well in the comic books, still the best shooter in the group, and currently in a romantic relationship with Rick.

    7. The show's Hershel was beheaded by the Governor, inciting the assault on the prison. In the comics, Hershel does indeed die during the Governor's attack, but not in such dramatic fashion. Instead, he's shot and killed after witnessing the deaths of several of his own family members.

    8. In the comics, the Governor beheads Tyreese, not Hershel. The show's version of Tyreese's death was much more serene, as he drifts off into a fairly pleasant fever dream following a walker bite. (Note that "serene" is a relative term in the zombie apocalypse, where getting bit by a walker and having an arm lopped off is somewhat peaceful, considering the alternatives.)

    9. Deanna Monroe died during the assault on Alexandria, bitten by a walker and eventually standing up to a massive pack of the monsters. The comic book version of Monroe — a bald man named Douglas, instead of the sorghum-craving Deanna show-only viewers got to meet — also dies during the chaos at Alexandria, but in much less heroic fashion. There, Monroe is eaten alive by walkers while he shoots his gun wildly. Indeed, he's the one who shoots out Carl's eye in the comic.

    10. The show killed Denise much earlier than she died in the comics — but more notably, the show gave Denise someone else's iconic comic book death: Abraham's. In the comics, he's shot through the eye with an arrow in the middle of an insightful conversation with Eugene. Clearly, the show took different approaches to killing both Denise and Abraham.

    There are exceptions to the rule, of course. Some deaths on the show played out exactly, or close to, the way they played out in the comics. For instance …

    ** Two of the show's earliest victims, Amy and Jim from season one, both die either during or as a result of the zombie raid on the group's Atlanta camp.

    ** The Governor gains a few extra scratches and stab wounds from Rick and Michonne on the show, before Lilly puts him down for good with a gunshot to the head — just like she kills him in the comics.

    ** Gareth and the Terminus cannibals are not in the comics, but they mirror a group of human-eating hunters who are suddenly ambushed and butchered by Rick's group.

    ** And then there's Jessie and her family, eaten alive during the zombie attack at Alexandria. Rick even cuts Jessie's hand off in the comic books, too.
