The Walking Dead issue 161 is titled “The Whisperer War Part 5 of 6” and could have some heartbreaking news for the people of The Hilltop Colony.

Issue #160 of The Walking Dead is still fresh in the minds of fans, but that doesn’t mean that it is too soon to look ahead to next month’s issue of the popular zombie survival drama comic book series.

Of course, the major worry right now is the fire consuming The Hilltop. The Whisperers launched a volley of flaming arrows at the buildings and fire has spread throughout the community, including Maggie’s house where baby Hershel and Sophia are inside.

Maggie may be rushing into her home in a frenzy to see if she can find them, but fans won’t be needing to make multiple rushes to their local comic book shop or keep checking their ComiXology account for the new issue.

Here is the information you’ll need to know about issue 161:
