On AMC’s The Walking Dead, the character of Carl, played by Chandler Riggs, is hugely divisive among fans. We even included the son of protagonist Rick Grimes on our list of annoying sci-fi characters we would like to see die on screen. I’m of the camp that he’s in the process of becoming a solid character (the same can be said about most of the cast members), but in Robert Kirkman’s comics that serve as the source material, this isn’t as big an issue, he’s a little borderline sociopathic badass. But this is The Walking Dead we’re talking about, and no one lives forever, and the reveal of a few upcoming covers have people speculating on Carl’s future in the comics.
There are SPOILERS beyond here for those of you not current on The Walking Dead comics. Just a warning.
