Perhaps one of the most anticipated issues of The Walking Dead since Negan was introduced in 2012, a preview for issue #157 has been released.
Unlike last month's issue of The Walking Dead, which solely followed Negan as he trained and became a part of the Whisperers only to betray them and kill their leader, this month we will head to multiple locations and follow different characters.
The preview of the 32 page book shows Heath reuniting with Dwight, who still hasn't made it back to Alexandria, apparently. We also see the Kingdom with its gates open, prompting a curiosity for who will be heading there. Most importantly, though, we see Beta discovering a headless Alpha and the rest of the group concluding (correctly) that Negan is responsible for her death.
Check out the preview and the cover in the gallery below.
The big draw of the issue is just what Negan plans to do with Alpha's head. Ending issue #156, the villain appeared to be aligning with Rick to an extent by taking out his biggest enemy and showing excitement to present Rick with his work. If the cover of issue #157 is any indication, Rick's reaction won't be the one Negan is looking for, and the rest of Alexandria looks a bit unsettled, as well.
The Walking Dead #157 hits shelves Wednesday and the TV series will return for its seventh season October 23 at 9 PM ET on AMC. For complete coverage, insider info, and more all season long, be sure to follow me on Twitter @BrandonDavisBD and check out The Walking Dead on ComicBook.com on Facebook.
