Well, at least the readers do. Killing Rick would be a hell of a risk for Kirkman, because this character's death would mean a way out of the series for his audience.
In the same way, TWD Season 1 must be considered Lee's journey - and with his death, closure for the series actually exists. Something the comic series' author has refused to render for more than nine years now.
I agree in that I find the comic to be "rinse and repeat" for over 2,000 pages now - heresy, known & apologized herewith - and I also find that a continuance of the story with my dearly loved Clementine would undoubtedly be very repetitive as well.
Telltale did a hell of a job for TWD, and I believe they have in fact wiped the floor with the comic. Time to close the book before a second game Season reveals the very same flaws of its sequential art counterpart.
