  • @Robert Morgan said: That could be a mistake, IMO. Introducing characters from the comic/show is a risky business, since the writers are usually boxed in by whatever occurs to said character within WALKING DEAD canon. A good example of this is your inability to rescue Shawn, even if you chose to save him over Duck.

    Then again, I suppose there are ways they could go about doing it. I haven't been reading that many issues of the comic book.



    Where exactly do they sit with Cannon? Is it very specifically within the comic, or are they within their rights to take the route the tv show did and make it an adaptation of the comic series, where it doesn't have to be so rigid?

    I think it takes place in the exact same universe as the comic. They have already used characters from the comic in the game(Hershel/Shawn/Glenn/planned Lilly) and were careful not to change how they're perceived.

  • Connect the TV series and the game/comics it's a very bad idea. There are a lot of differences between comics and TV series. For example Thomas, do you remember how the cop told Lee about him?
    Cop: "...He was an older fella. Big, soft eyes behind a pair of smart folk glasses, and he's just wailing back there, says it wasn't him..."
    So, how Thomas looks like in TV show? Big badass latinos as like Machete, at first I didn't even realize that this is Thomas, but when I read titles, a very long time I was in shock.
    It's a slight discrepancy with the comic book. How about Dixon brothers? How about Dale, Lilly (please do not confuse the Lilly of the game and the Lilly of the comics it is different girls) Hershel. How about Lorry's fate? I mean her death scence
    Nah... it's a really bad idea.

    I'm afraid you're mistaken. The character of Thomas WAS in the comics. He was the supposed tax evader who was a murderer. The game has nothing to do with the comics. But yeah, I agree with you.

    Since Kirkman made his own version of Lilly, it makes sense that he does not want any involvement from the game that contradicts/connects with his comics. I'd say that Telltale and Kirkman should keep their respective characters within their own mediums.

  • Well that pretty much canonizes that Clem will be in season 2.

  • @Advanced said: Considering how the main point of the story was about Clementine... I think its safe to say she will be in Season 2.



    The Walking Dead.....

    Safe to say....

    100% hardcore Lulz.....

  • For our choices to have any baring on season 2, it means that a character who survived the game appears again (and there aren't many of them, to say the least) or that our choices had unseen consequences, kind of like with the Stranger.

    Honestly, I think it's fair to assume that Clem, Omid and/or Christa will be encountered at some point. It's possible that we could see Lilly again, since she is no longer considered the same character as the Lilly from the comics.

    Otherwise, there aren't many characters who we can be absolutely sure survived, and even of the above mentioned, we only know that Clem survives.

    Thinking about it, here are some non-comic characters that potentially survived the game:
    -Officer Mitchell
    -Random Save-Lots Bandits
    -Vernon and Co.
    -Molly

    And that's really about it. Almost all of the other characters you meet are seen being killed/dead or as walkers.

    Really, I could see only Vernon and Molly being legitimate options for cameos or returns from that list.

    That what I meaned, Thomas in comics are fits the description of the police officer from game his style of murder victims of the same as officer said (Hershel's daughters)
    A true maniac, but in TV series Thomas looks cheap

  • @ZeroShoot said: At least he said that yet they didn't seriously consider starting with a new set of chars, I think Clementine will re-appear in season 2, and I really hope I'm right on that, and they see how many people wish that, and they know: Mad fans, are bad fans, so they will hopefully and probably put little Clem in season 2.
    Oh btw: thanks for sharing this information/interview.



    They have to have Clementine in season 2. There are a lot of loose ends that need to be tied.

  • Alright guys, hear it or not but in SEASON 2, you'll play as the GUY walking on the hills, he will surely be the protagonist of season 2 and the CHOICES you have made in season 2 will INFLUENCE your interaction with her, whether Clem shoots you, talks to you or escapes from you, so, you'll meet Clementine at the end of episode 1 season 2, then you'll have her in ep 2 with ya, I think that's the only idea Telltale has, who knows, they might change plans xD
