Rick Grimes: TV Versus Comic
Despite being mostly the same as his comic self, Rick Grimes on AMC never lost an arm and occasionally, his hair isn’t the same as the comic.
Shane Walsh: TV Versus Comic
In addition to Rick Grimes, Shane Walsh is quite similar to his television persona. The difference is occasionally facial hair or police clothing.
The Governor: TV Versus Comic
The two versions of The Governor are quite different. The comic version is missing an arm and looks a little more comic-cartoony than the AMC version.
Michonne: TV Versus Comic
Danai Gurira’s version of Michonne is also quite similar to the comics. Her storyline changes some in Season 6, but the look is dead on.
Negan: TV Versus Comic
Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s portrayal of Negan is almost exactly the same as it is in the comic. Some of the comic dialogue doesn’t land as well on television, but overall, fans love to hate Negan.
Daryl Dixon is not in the comic. Do you know which other characters are new for the AMC version of The Walking Dead?
