I think the new Ben in the show is actually the comics Ben. Sasha even says "We're out here to bury Donna" in the clip for the Feb. 10th episode that was shown on Talking Dead.
@rachellouise85 The show is chock full of great moments, from the pilot to the current episodes. Yes, it's not a reenactment of the comics, but if it was, that would suck because we would see everything coming and it would get stale fast. If you haven't watched, AMC will be doing a marathon of every episode on New Year's Eve and Day and I highly suggest you check it out. By the end you'll be another gigantic fan of the show. In my opinion, the show helps compliment the comics and the characters in them by adding subtleties and expansion of certain plot points that helps enforce the lessons conveyed in the comics.
