The Real Reason Daryl Dixon Won’t Appear In Walking Dead Comic

Legal battles hold back fan-favorite...


Since 2010, Daryl Dixon has unquestionably been the fan-favorite character on The Walking Dead. With Rick Grimes being written out of the show, he may soon turn into the leader. But, some fans are wondering if this icon will ever appear in Robert Kirkman’s comic book.

The redneck bow-hunter was originally added to shake things up, similar to his brother Merle Dixon. However, actor Norman Reedus fought for Daryl to not be so racist or evil, which led to him being more of a hero than a lone wolf. Despite how awesome the character is, he’s never been mentioned in the source material.

If Robert Kirkman were to introduce Daryl Dixon into the comic world, it would be groundbreaking and likely bring in new fans. But, it’s completely his decision, and it doesn’t feel like the kind of thing Kirkman would ever do.
