The previous season of The Walking Dead concluded with Rick and the Alexandrians joining forces with King Ezekiel and the Kingdom to end Negan’s rule. The new alliance resulted in several characters meeting for the first time and others reuniting after a long separation. Now, Entertainment Weekly has unveiled the first image from the upcoming eighth season that features a reunion between Daryl and Carol.
Showrunner Scott M. Gimple also hinted at what fans can expect from the new character interactions:
“The season finale last year, seeing all the characters together interacting as one, was thrilling. It was exciting to see all these configurations of characters we hadn’t seen before. Even Aaron merely giving Jerry an apple felt satisfying. This is that times a million. Though it would be cool if the season began with just everybody giving each other apples. I’d be down with that. But it’s not that.”

10 Independent Comics Perfect For TV
I really don’t understand why so many great, independent comics are being ignored by Hollywood executives.
Marvel and DC dominated television in 2016 with the Arrowverse bringing the Legends of Tomorrow into the mix and Netflix adding both Jessica Jones and Luke Cage to their expanding list of original titles. Comic book films also did well in the box office last year, even if the critics weren’t always too happy, so it seems from an investment perspective comic book properties are still a good bet. Independent comics are full of characters and concepts that have the potential to become the next big thing. Fortunately, with Valiant’s recent announcement of an online Ninjak series and FX finally naming a show runner for their Y:The Last Man adaptation, it seems comic fans have a lot to look forward to in the years ahead.
