If you look at “The Walking Dead” the TV series side-by-side to the comics, there is one thing that you could say stands out almost right away: One has Daryl Dixon! It’s amazing to even try to imagine where the show would be without the character at this point: Norman Reedus has created a beloved figure in this role, and he is now one of the most-popular people on the show and we could never imagine AMC being so cruel as to kill him. (Then again, they often have a knack for surprising us.)
So while we have seen so many characters from the comics transfer over to the show, is it possible that we could see one from the show actually work their way into the comics? It’s probably not going to happen, but we do love what Reedus recently had to say on the matter in an interview with Comic-Book.com:
“Of course I would love to be a part of the books and I’ve joked around with Robert [Kirkman] begging him to put me in, but he’s the creator and really knows what’s best for the stories. They are so intricate and vast I can’t even wrap my head around what that’s about really, to create such a unique world like that, so I’m following his lead. I’m really happy with where I’m at if you know what I mean.”
For now, we should just celebrate that Daryl has some big things coming up in the new season. While he is likely still working to get over what transpired when it came to Merle, he’s not going to have much time to sit around and pout over it. Not only are there more zombies than ever, but there is also a new threat coming that no one is prepared for.
