Robert Kirkman is killing off ‘The Walking Dead’ comic

“I know exactly where I’m going and what’s going to happen when I get there.”

In a world of comic book reboots, The Walking Dead has remained a staunch constant: at 169 continuous issues, it’s one of the longer running ongoings in the industry right now. So much has happened over the course of the comic that many fans have wondered as of late when it’ll all come to an end. At San Diego Comic Con, series creator Robert Kirkman confirmed he’s looking to end the series. “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.”

While he didn’t give an exact date, the end seems to be near. No word on how this will affect AMC’s The Walking Dead television show, though both that and its spinoff Fear the Walking Dead seem to be going strong, as the latter’s season 3 midseason premiere was released at SDCC.
