WARNING: Spoilers from the WALKING DEAD comic books, and potentially TV show, are ahead!

Welcome to the WALKING DEAD BOOK CLUB podcast! This is the place to talk about the story of Walking Dead from the perspective of people who have also read the Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard comics on which the show is based.

In their second episode, hosts Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Jessica Liese (@HaymakerHattie) talk about “The Next World,” which featured one of the biggest changes from the comics since the show’s inception: Rick and Michonne. They spend a lot of time slicing into Richonne and what it means for future storylines. They also talk about newcomer Paul “Jesus” Rovia, better known to comics fans as Paul Monroe. What’s up with the name change? They get into that, and a whole lot more, from the tenth episode of season six.

    Yo, first time long time.

    You never bang the dude with the tiger. Never. Dudes with exotic pets are weird. He probably has a David Copperfield (magician not book) poster on his wall and a waterbed and an IROC-Z somewhere with his collection of swords and silk shirts.

      I didn’t say you marry the dude with the tiger. But you definitely bang him. Someone who’s trying that hard to make an impression is going to KEEP trying really hard, if you know what I mean.

        I think you mean he’ll cook you a nice meal after–and while I agree that sounds tempting–said meal will likely be made of an endangered species and modified from the menu at Guy’s American Kitchen and Bar.

      OUCH! Mazzaro,that stings to the core (as I quietly box up my wardrobe of multi-colored silk shirts & put my 1987 IROC-Z w/T-tops, up for sale on AutoTrader). I suppose the next thing you are going to tell me is my pair of JNCO’s aren’t rockin’ and in style anymore. My pet Ball python, Rocky BalBoa resents your sentiment as well. Carry on!

    I had a friend in college we called Jesus simply because of the long hair and wispy beard. Although he was nowhere near the badass Paul Monroe is. He couldn’t turn water into wine, but he could turn money I loaned him into pot.

    The Eugene nut biting scene happened after Abraham died. It was Dwight who shot Abraham with the arrow, then took Eugene hostage back to the gates of Alexandria.
