The Walking Dead: 6 Characters the Show Did Better

5. Judith Grimes

I’m not saying that Judith was a “bad character” in the Walking Dead comics.  She just didn’t live long enough to be able to compare to the TV show’s version, who looks different every season but is always adorable.  While her death served as a vital plot point in the comic book series and remains one of the most horrific moments in the franchise, I prefer the contrast in keeping her alive.  Her presence in the group will always serve as a reason for the survivors to keep going, as she is their one beacon of hope.

Little Asskicker is the only Grimes family member to make the list, but that’s not because Rick, Carl and Lori aren’t great characters.  They’re just simply around the same level in both mediums.
