How 'The Walking Dead' Finally Ends (In The Comics, Anyway)

The television adaptation may still be going strong on AMC, but the world already knows how The Walking Dead comic book ends after the long-running series wrapped in 2019. TWD creator Robert Kirkman always claimed his comic book series was destined to run at least 300 issues, and up until TWD #193 that seemed likely to be the case. Then, in the heartfelt letter that closes out the issue, Kirkman confirmed it would be the series’ last. The unexpected finale caught both fans and retailers by surprise. 

Having debuted in October 2003, TWD's 16-year run is an impressive accomplishment for a series that was initially ordered as a six-issue mini. In that time, the plot of the comic has drifted quite a bit from the happenings that AMC viewers are familiar with - but Kirkman's conclusion to the comic almost certainly contains some hints about how The Walking Dead will end on television.
