When you talk about successful comic book runs, you often look at those who penned or drew a specific section of the life of the characters. For the Walking Dead, it’s always been Robert Kirkman’s comic, that’s why he was brought in to make the TV series and the spinoff. But all good things must come to an end, and he has revealed at San Diego Comic Con that the comic is going t end.
“I think about two or three years ago, I had a pretty good idea for a definitive ending. I have known that since then and been working towards that, so I know exactly where I’m going and what’s going to happen when I get there.” he said to the A.V. Club.
The comic has been going on for 14 years, which is a heck of a run for a comic that isn’t a part of DC Comics or Marvel. Kirkman gained a lot of respect for his Walking Dead series, and so if he think it’s time to end it, he deserves the respect to end it his way.
Now, there’s no indication of how long it’ll take to get to the end, for all we know it could be a year or two down the road, but at least we know now, it is coming to an end.
