Me, Grimlock! wrote:I only saw the first episode, so I have yet to see the second. I'm glad they're sticking closely to the comics, but I hope they diverge a little more in the future episodes. And I'm also glad m'man Glenn was one of the characters chosen to be in it, in a cast of at least 40 characters from the comics!
Now if they'd only fit Michonne in soon.
The second episode touches on concepts from issues 3/4, but really is completely different from the books. The good news is that AMC has already green lighted a full 13 episode 2nd season.
While I know I read it somewhere, and I can't find it now. I'm sure they have said they plan to introduce Michonne sooner than her comic debut. Likely at the beginning of the second series. My guess is that the season will end on a cliffhanger of them finding the Wiltshire Estates from issue 8,which will be used to introduce Michonne and Tyreese. Hopefully leaving out his daughter and idiot boyfriend, explaining they had already died rather than have to worry about bringing in two fan-favorites while dealing with 2 rather weak and unnecessary characters.
But that's just my prediction.
And for anyone who hasn't seen it, This was a fan-made opening for the show using the art from the original books. Not in tone to the show, but better (IMO) than what they went with.
