The first issue of the New World Order arc which published in January saw Michonne's group introduced to the Commonwealth community. According the community's representative Lance Hornsby, there are more than 50,000 people living within the community's walls. Princess' apparent feud with the soldiers, however, may have been teased when she was excluded as a member of Michonne's group during their arrival interrogation.
"I hope the end of [issue #175] caught you off guard," The Walking Dead writer and creator Robert Kirkman wrote in the Letter Hacks section. "This is either leading to the most positive and optimistic storyline in The Walking Dead history... or the darkest one... we'll just have to wait and see."
