We’re just over a month away from The Walking Dead proper’s Season 6 return, and short of any new trailers for the October 11 premiere, AMC has at least offered some stylish new key art of the continued zombie apocalypse. How, pray tell, are things going in gloomy ol’ Alexandria?

As you might have guessed, things are looking fairly grim by The Walking Dead Season 6's latest key art, the first since the Alexandria face-off glimpsed at Comic-Con. This time around, Rick has his trusty revolver, while grey skies roll in, and the world seems to be faced with a new burden other than zombies; that of the mysterious encroachment of letters spelling out “T,” “W” and “D.” The world truly is a scary place, sometimes.
