Issue #103 of The Walking Dead begins a new chapter in the life of Rick and his group of survivors in the aftermath of "Something to Fear" and the loss of some major characters from the comic book series. For the last 5 issues, we haven't had preview pages because Skybound wanted to avoid spoilers, but we should have something for readers later this week. Until then, here is the official cover art for #103:

The Walking Dead #103: "It is a new beginning for THE WALKING DEAD. Rick Grimes is no longer in charge, and nothing will ever be the same again. It's such a perfect jumping on point, it could easily have been a new first issue - but instead, the world's best selling creator-owned comic just keeps moving forward, with #103 and counting!"
