After The Governor, After Negan, Welcome To The Walking Dead's New Big Bad

big-spoiler

Today sees the launch of The Walking Dead #138. The series has a history of introducing standout characters, those with a particular point of view, expressed violently and with purpose, who fans seem to obsess about, Michonne was there at issue #19, The Governor came along with #27 and fans are still debuting who will play Negan, who first appeared in #100, in the TV series. Well time to add another key item to the list, when yo work out which issue the first appearance of the leader of the Whisperers appeared in. Well, this is the one in which the individual in question takes off their zombie skin face.

And no, it's not Michonne.

Even to her daughter. Yeah, I get the feeling she's gong to be a keeper.

You may start your speculation engines… now.
