Story Development In answer to the question: Did you have a master plan from the very beginning or you're developing things "on the go"? Robert Kirkman responded: As far as a master plan goes--I don't have one. When I started, I had mapped the book up to about where I am now, actually. Issue 37 I've I'm constantly thinking of new and horrible things that will happen to these characters. I love them so much, but I love doing terrible things to them.
Michonne is distraught at the sight of Ezekiel 's undead head and pulls out a knife to put down Ezekiel's severed head. Rick stops her and offers to do it instead.
Michonne angrily refuses and pushes Rick back before turning back around in tears and hugging Rick tight while apologizing. As they console one another, Andrea takes Michonne's knife from her hand and puts Ezekiel down.
She directs the others to help her get the rest of the reanimated heads. Michonne laments the chance with Ezekiel that she's thrown away, and tells Rick there's something wrong with her, to which Rick replies, "there's something wrong with all of us. Suddenly, Michonne tackles Lydia to the ground and demands to know if she knew Alpha would do this, and whether the Whisperers have done this before.
Carl pulls his gun on her as Dante tells Michonne not to do this. Placing her knife to Michonne's neck, Lydia calmly tells Michonne that she knew nothing about it, and that her old group have never met survivors that outnumbered them like this. She adds that they usually meet smaller groups and that they either join them or go their separate ways. She warns Michonne if she doesn't get off her, she will have the knife halfway through her neck before she can do anything about it.
Michonne, realizing she is being unreasonable, gets off, helping Lydia up. Lydia tells the group that she thinks Alpha is scared of them. Carl, with his gun still aimed at Michonne is told to holster his gun by Michonne, to which he does. Carl inquires what happened to their bodies to which Lydia replies that they were probably skinned.
Rick asks if they should take the heads back with them to bury. Michonne says that they will bury them by the pikes. Rick tells Michonne that's fine, but they leave the poles exactly where they are as that's the territories boundary.
Michonne is not happy that Rick seems to not want to cross the line and kill the people for murdering their friends, saying it would be a different story if it had been Carl or Andrea. Alexandria's residents face down the horde and save their town. Carl is in a coma following his injury and his survival is unclear. Some residents question the bold choices Rick makes for their community and attempt to seize control of Alexandria. Rick quashes the rebellion. Carl awakens with amnesia. Monroe claims he is a recruiter for a nearby band of or more people called the Hilltop Colony.
Rick and others go to the Hilltop Colony and find its appearance seems to be even safer than that of Alexandria, although it has a dangerous enemy called The Saviors.
The Saviors demand half of the colony's food and supplies, in exchange for killing nearby walkers. The Saviors are a brutal gang led by a man named Negan. Rick underestimates the Saviors and dismisses their threat level until his best friends, including Glenn and Abraham, are brutally killed.
Alexandria is forced to begin paying tribute — half of their supplies — to the Saviors. Enraged, Rick vows to kill Negan. Rick devises a new strategy to deal with the Saviors, but a member of his group disappears after the Saviors collect their payment from Alexandria. Rick is forced to halt his plan.
Paul takes Rick to request help from an exotic man named Ezekiel , leader of a community called the Kingdom. The Kingdom is based in Washington, D. The three communities band together to formulate an assault, but Negan shows up early to collect his tribute from Alexandria.
The alliance seizes the opportunity to assassinate Negan, but Negan retreats and declares war.
Rick's forces seize an early advantage and manage to trap Negan inside the Sanctuary, but their attack on Negan's outposts falters as many of Rick's closest friends fall. They wonder if their initial victory was simple luck. Negan mounts an eventual counterattack on Alexandria and its situation goes from bad to worse.
On the brink of defeat, Rick offers Negan a truce as a trap. Negan falls for Rick's ruse. Rick slashes Negan's throat and demands that war cease. Negan survives the attack as Rick's prisoner. Civilization has been rebuilt and the communities have established a successful trade network. Carl moves to Hilltop.
A new group arrives in Alexandria, and meet the imprisoned Negan.

When Alpha's second in command, Beta, takes leadership of the group, he declares war against the communities. While it has been used extremely rarely in the comics, it has never been used in the television adaptation. Rick's group classifies the undead as either walkers, roamers or lurkers, the former being more likely to venture toward a loud noise in search of human prey. Other names have been used by characters in the series, including biters and stinkers.
The undead follow and mimic each other, which can result in enormous hordes travelling together, "walking nonstop, following a sound they've all forgotten," as Abraham puts it.
The series received critical acclaim, winning the Eisner Award for Best Continuing Series in  and prompting Eric Sunde of IGN comics to call it "one of the best monthly comics available".
