Walking Dead: How THAT Tragedy Compares to Comics

Eye of the Tiger.

Full spoilers for The Walking Dead continue below. Make sure to read IGN’s review of “Some Guy.”[2] Four episodes into The Walking Dead’s eighth season and we’ve come back around to a memorable moment from Robert Kirkman’s comic series – a failed assault and the death of Shiva, who rushed into a swarm of zombies in order to save Ezekiel’s life.

The season started out mirroring the “All Out War” arc from the comics[3], but then did its own thing for a few chapters – including the return of Season 1’s Morales[4]. Now, after weeks of winning (and smiling), the King has fallen on hard times, losing just about every member of his squad (except Jerry and Carol) along with his precious pet. Let’s see how things went down in the comics compared to the scenes in this week’s “Some Guy.”

Due to the graphic nature of both The Walking Dead comics and TV show, the slideshow below contains strong language, gore and violence. So, aside from some extra characters, like Carol and Jerry (and Alvaro who briefly tried to help Ezekiel before getting gunned down), the TV show hit the main major beats from the comics. Ezekiel’s group fell and Shiva died trying to save him while he fled.

Ezekiel’s now returned back to home base without his once-lauded warriors.

Rick and Daryl may have ultimately stopped the machine guns from getting back to the Sanctuary, but Ezekiel’s feeling the overall loss.
