Chaos reaching the well-off group is not entirely surprising. Such scenarios seem to follow Rick Grimes wherever he goes. However, the leader of Alexandria certainly did his best to prevent a war coming to the community of 50,000 strong which is complete with football games, concerts, a class system, diners, and other luxuries.
In the most recent issue of The Walking Dead comics, Rick Grimes was forced to kill one of his own people when they drew their gun on the Commonwealth's leader Pamela Milton. Dwight had been hoping to take over the community in an effort to "free" its people from this selfish governor's rule. Rick, however, knows that his people are outmatched and is anything but eager to see any single member of his group perish for such a cause.
The story involving Rick, Alexandria, the Commonwealth, and the continued expansion of The Walking Dead universe will continue in new monthly issues, with issue #189 hitting shelves in comic book stores on March 6, 2019.
The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9 pm ET. Fear the Walking Dead will return for its fifth season in 2019. For complete coverage and insider info all year long, follow @BrandonDavisBD on Twitter and watch ComicBook.com's After The Dead each Sunday night following new episodes.
