After last month's shocking death of Rick Grimes, this month's issue of The Walking Dead comic has done something even more shocking: end. 

上月瑞克·格莱姆斯令人震惊地死去后,这月的《行尸走肉》漫画做出了更令人震惊的事:完结了。

According to ComicBook.com, Robert Kirkman's tremendously lucrative comic series that serves as the source material for AMC's The Walking Dead is over, with no advance warning, with Issue #193, out Wednesday, bringing the story that started in 2003 to an end.

根据漫画书网的消息,罗伯特·柯克曼的吸金漫画系列,也就是AMC电视台《行尸走肉》的素材来源,完结了,之前没有任何预告。这个从2003年开始连载的故事在周三发行的193期中完结。

The plot of the issue is being kept under wraps for now, but it will serve as an epilogue to the death of Rick Grimes, which happened across #191 and #192.

这期漫画的情节还处于保密状态,但是这将为191期和192期瑞克·格莱姆斯的死收场。

"I hate knowing what's coming," Kirkman wrote in the Letter Hacks section of Issue #193, which leaked on Reddit. "

“我讨厌剧透。”柯克曼在193期的信件黑客板块中写道,他的话泄露在Reddit网站上。

So what does this mean for AMC's The Walking Dead, which will return for Season 10 in the fall? 

那么这对于AMC即将在秋季回归的《行尸走肉》第十季来说意味着什么呢?

Honestly, probably not much, beyond reminding us that everything is finite and The Walking Dead will end someday. 

老实说,可能没什么大影响。只能提醒我们一切都是有限的,《行尸走肉》总有一天会完结的。

The show is currently adapting somewhere around Issue #150, so it has some time before the source material runs out, though it looks like the Ohio storyline that emerges around Issue #169 may get adapted into the Rick Grimes movies, since there are some parallels between the Commonwealth and the helicopter people who took him in Season 9. 

这部剧目前大约改编到了150期,离素材用完还有一段时间,虽然看起来169期左右的俄亥俄州的情节要被改变成瑞克·格莱姆斯电影,因为在这个州和坐直升飞机带走他的人之间有一些平行之处。

In that case, The Walking Dead will probably run out of source material to adapt after Season 10. But then chief content officer Scott Gimple and showrunner Angela Kang and their writers will just come up with original material. 

这种情况下,第十季之后, 《行尸走肉》可能就没有素材来进行改编了。但是首席内容官斯科特·金普勒和制片人安吉拉·康以及他们的编剧会创作出原创素材。

The show has never been directly beholden to the comics anyway. It always gets "remixed," with storylines happening with different characters and different deaths and in different order, etc.

这部剧也从未直接忠实于漫画,而是总是“合成”。不同的情节涉及不同的人物、不同的死亡,发生顺序也不同,诸如此类。

In any case, The Walking Dead franchise will soldier on, with the mothership show, Fear the Walking Dead, the untitled third series, and the Rick Grimes TV movie trilogy with Andrew Lincoln all in various stages of their lifespan.

不管怎样,《行尸走肉》剧都会继续下去。未命名的第三季电视剧《行尸之惧》和安德鲁·林肯出演的瑞克·格莱姆斯电影三部曲都在各自生命周期的不同阶段。
