Walking Dead was a comic book for seven years before it became a hit TV show. The comic was first published in 2003 and the first TV show aired in 2010. The TV show has deviated slightly from the comic book but has remained close to the story-line.
You can enjoy the comic book and the TV show without worrying about having the story “spoiled” for you. The comic book lays out the general direction for the story, but the TV show sometimes takes a different route to get there.
To celebrate The Walking Dead Season 8, I am giving you some of the biggest differences between the comic book and the TV show. There are many more, but these are the ones I feel deserve mentioning. If you think there are other big differences I should’ve mentioned let me now in the comments.
