The Walking Dead comic series, created by Robert Kirkman and artist Charlie Adlard, has announced that it will be ending with issue #193. The announcement came only a day before the final issue dropped, proving once again that The Walking Dead is king of both plot twists and surprise deaths.
The Image Comics and Skybound Entertainment series has been around since 2003 and spawned a hit television show that’s been on the air for nine seasons. Kirkman and Adlard have known for a while that #193 would be the final issue, but were so dedicated to the concept of a surprise reveal that they even went so far as to create covers for future issues that won’t actually exist in order to keep the secret intact.
While the comic series might be ending, The Walking Dead is still going strong on television, complete with multiple spin-offs, and now movies in the works as well.
