In the past few months it has been announced that The Walking Dead in Color will be re-released while the author Robert Kirkman shared the first few pages he had drawn to fans and focused on an alternate beginning of the story.
As you know, in the final version, Rick falls into a coma after being injured during a police operation. When he wakes up, he discovers that it is a company destroyed by the zombie apocalypseand decided to go to look for his wife Lori and son Carl. However, it wasn't like that in the first version the author wrote, as you can see in the pictures in the gallery of news, Rick and his wife, whose name was originally supposed to be Carol, are at home if one Zombies break down your front door. The comments from the then-editor of Image Comics caused Robert Kirkman to change his mind as Eric Stephenson said the beginning of the story wasn't particularly original.
Additionally, the author's plans were for events to take place in Pennsylvania, while the first safe place Rick and his family found was a high school became its main base. Finally, we point to this interview with the creator of The Walking Dead, in which he talks about the possibilities of a sequel.
