Fans of The Walking Dead comic book series know that Norman Reedus’ character Daryl Dixon was created specifically for the TV show. To say that Daryl has been a fan favorite is an understatement and Robert Kirkman hints that the character may be joining the comic book series.
We recently covered a number of quotes from last weekend’s Image Comics Expo, where Robert Kirkman and Norman Reedus were present at a live panel. However, some new information has emerged from the event regarding Daryl’s possible comic appearance. Fans were wondering if a recent teaser image hinted at Daryl’s addition to the comic series and Robert Kirkman strongly hints that we’ll see him in the upcoming “Somthing to Fear” story arc:
From Robert Kirkman: “I’ve definitely considered writing Daryl in to the comics. Norman is always pestering me about it. All I can say right now is that if you have been paying attention to the Internet we did just release a series of teasers called ‘Something to Fear’ for a new story arc that’s coming up and it’s a series of very threatening looking people with very specific weapons and one of them has a crossbow,”
The “Something to Fear” story arc will start later this year and leads up to The Walking Dead‘s 100th issue. Last month, we ran a number of teaser images and have included them below:
“After Rick and the other survivors are brought into a larger world, they are given something to fear.”
