The Return Of A Familiar, Um, Face, For Walking Dead #172 (MAJOR SPOILERS)

This is so much of a spoiler that it is not being published on the front page of Bleeding Cool. It is not being tweeted out or posted to Facebook. In fact, the only possible way you could have found it is by searching for it — or from a link by someone who searched for it. If you don't want this spoiler then a) wonder why you came here b) go somewhere else for two days and c) turn off your social media until then.

It will be pushed to the front page only after Comic Book/CBR/Newsarama/whoever else is meant to have the exclusive finds this article and persuades Skybound that this means they should be able to publish it on their front page now.

The Walking Dead #172 is published on Wednesday. The series has seen characters come and go. Then come. Then go again, Then get their brains bashed out with a baseball bat.

Beta is the former second-in-command and then de-facto leader of The Whisperers, those who hide among the hordes of the dead by dressing in zombie skin. First appearing in The Walking Dead #154 then disappearing with #162, he made a short impactful appearance,  secondary antagonist of Volume 26: Call to Arms and the primary antagonist of Volume 27: The Whisperer War.

And now he's back… and he may be making a meal of it. The Last Supper perhaps?
