Video+Story: Walking Dead Season 9 Whisperer War

The Walking Dead comic book has been a great success for Image Comics. It has been an even bigger hit as a TV series for AMC. Sure, there are zombies (walkers) in the show, but they are merely background for the actual drama of the show.

The Walking Dead is really about how bad humans treat each other when the societal norms crumble and it becomes every man/woman for themselves to survive. Inevitably some people rise to the position of leader of their group. Some of those leaders are good (Rick Grimes). Other leaders go too far with their authority and become villains.

The Walking Dead has given us some really good villains in their run so far. We have had Merle Dixon, the Governor, Negan, and now we are gonna be introduced to the Whisperers.

The Whisperers are a group that believe to survive we need to devolve to a more animalistic nature. They don’t protect the women or the weak. They believe they must endure to make them tough enough to live. They travel around in suits made of walker skins and they speak in hushed zombie-like tones. They can direct herds of walkers this way and effectively use them as weapons.

In the comics the Whisperers take out quite a few named survivors. They make life very hard for the survivors until they finally reach the point of war. In the comics the Whisperer War takes place over 6 issues. I believe it will consume the second half of season 9 and possibly spill over into season 10. In the comics, Negan is also a big help for the survivors in defeating the Whisperers. The TV series has deviated from the comic book while staying mostly true to the plot. We are interested to see how the Whisperer War unfolds in the TV series.

What do you think about The Walking Dead Whisperer War? Do you think they are a good foe for the survivors? Let us know in the comments.

Walking Dead Comic Book & TV show differences

Walking Dead was a comic book for seven years before it became a hit TV show. The comic was first published in 2003 and the first TV show aired in 2010.

The TV show has deviated slightly from the comic book but has remained close to the story-line.

You can enjoy the comic book and the TV show without worrying about having the story “spoiled” for you. The comic book lays out the general direction for the story, but the TV show sometimes takes a different route to get there.

To celebrate The Walking Dead Season 8, I am giving you some of the biggest differences between the comic book and the TV show. There are many more, but these are the ones I feel deserve mentioning.

If you think there are other big differences I should’ve mentioned let me now in the comments.

TNTM: Top 5 AMC’s The Walking Dead characters

Our 5 favorite Walking Dead characters

The Walking Dead has been in print as a comic book since 2003 and as a TV series since 2010. A lot of great characters have been introduced in both mediums. We compile our top 5 favorite characters from both the comic book and TV series. Please leave your top 5 favorites in the comments.

Walking Dead in pop culture

Unless you have lived completely off the grid for the past 6 years, you know about The Walking Dead. This show has exploded on the pop culture scene. The zombie craze did well for this show. I propose the show is less about zombies than it is about how people treat each other when there are no rules applied to their behavior. Zombies are merely a backdrop to the story. While zombies do present a constant obstacle and are always something that needs to be dealt with, it is the brutal leaders of other groups that are the biggest threat (i.e. Governor, Negan, Terminus, Whisperers). You may disagree with my assessment.

Walking Dead history

A lot of folks don’t know The Walking Dead started out as an ongoing black-and-white comic book series created by writer Robert Kirkman and artist Tony Moore back in 2003. The comic book story focuses on Rick Grimes. Rick is a deputy who is shot in the line of duty and awakens from a coma in the zombie apocalypse. He eventually finds his wife and son along with other survivors. He assumes the role of group leader.

The TV series came along in 2010 on AMC. It was developed by Frank Darabont.
Much of the series takes place within the Atlanta, Georgia metro area and surrounding countryside. Rick’s group eventually makes their way Alexandria, Virginia.

The TV series makes a few changes from what is in the comics. The idea is for those who have read the comics to not be able to spoil it for the TV show watchers. There are even some characters that were developed specifically for the show that do not exist in the comics. They must be doing something right because both the show and the comic book are hugely successful.
