    Gilbert Short. The Man. The Myth. The Legend. When he's not reading comic books so you don't have to, he's likely listening to mediocre music or watching excellent television. Passionate about Giants baseball and 49ers football. When he was a kid he wanted to be The Ultimate Warrior. He still kind of does. His favorite character is Superman and he will argue with you about it if you try to convince him otherwise. He also happens to be the head of Social Media Relations, which means you should totally give him a follow onTwitter.

      Along with many others, my favorite is probably got to be Michonne.

      Favorite character, I would love to say Michonne but I’d be lying. It’s Carl.That kid amazes me.


    • Vince Spallino

      Carl all the way. But comics-Carl – not show-Carl. It’s definitely been sad watching him lose his childhood innocence, but it’s one of the things that truly makes this a great series above most others. I really hope that when I’m reading TWD ten years from now Carl is the anti-hero King of an epic post-apocalyptic hellscape.


    • Patrick A Powell

      Has to be Michonne. Cold hearted when needed but hidden emotions make her intriguing.

      I’m a fan of the badasses so I’d pick Rick for the comics and Daryl for the show because TV Rick is lame. sammygabryl@gmx.us

      it’s a toss-up between carl and rick, but i have to give it to rick. carl is a powerful character and it’s been both heartbreaking and awesome watching him grow up. but seeing what rick goes through to keep that boy safe.. that’s the kind of dad i wish i had. and the kind of man i aspire to be, so… rick grimes. fo sho.


    • Stymie33

      Tough one. Love Michonne, but Rick is the one who keeps the narrative flowing and coming back for more: “We are the walking dead!”

      Tyreese was my favorite. The book’s been in decline ever since he got killed.

      Andrea, she is strong mentally and as a member of the group, her sniping skills are always a game changer and her mindset about the zombie world is in my opinion the most correct

      The ever-present ‘walkers!’ I hope they count, without them it would just be ‘The Walking.’

      Gotta be The Governor. Changed the entire comic and what turned the series from a superb comic book into the juggernaut we see today. Andrea’s pretty good too. tomfry001@gmail.com
