As the latest episode of The Walking Dead came to a close on Sunday, we were left with the arresting image of the Governor slumped in his chair staring grimly at the wall. It wasn't cable that he was watching though...it was glass boxes filled with the heads of zombies...and humans. Why had the Governor decided on this choice of macabre home decoration, and why had he chosen these heads in particular to fill his wall? Is it cathartic sitting their looking at their twitching faces? I know home entertainment has been a bit on the boring side since the zombie apocalypse, but surely there are better ways to pass the time. Knitting a nice pair of mittens perhaps?
The answer to these questions might soon be at hand though, as the geniuses behind The Walking Dead comic book, Robert Kirkman and Charle Adlard, have created a chapter for this week’s CBLDF Liberty Annual 2012, which is out in shops tomorrow. According to the guys over at Bleeding Cool, the chapter will give details about how the Governor put his special collection together, and the thought process behind it.
This isn't the first time that Kirkman has used a spin-off from his massively successful zombie opus to flesh out the Governor's back story, with both The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor and The Walking Dead: Road to Woodbury being fascinating character studies on the sadistic leader of Woodbury.
Here's hoping the revelations in the new comic are just as bloody and shocking.
