Before we get started, let me assure you that this post does NOT contain Walking Dead spoilers...unless you somehow didn't know The Walking Dead is about the zombie apocalypse. In which case, sorry moron.
Anyway, let's get to the point. There have been theories circulating blogs and internet message boards for quite some time that suggest the entire series could be a goddamn dream. What if Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) never really woke up from the coma? (Sorry, I don't consider plot details from Season 1, Episode 1 to be spoilers.) What if the whole thing is a fabrication of his comatose mind and there is no zombie apocalypse?
Like I said, this theory has been going around for a while, and we already know it's false because AMC is doing a Walking Dead spinoff with a completely different set of unrelated characters set in the same post-zombie apocalyptic world, and it would be pretty weird if that was also Rick Grimes's dream.
Still, last week somebody over at Uproxx wrote an article about these theories. And even though the article plainly stated that the theories are horseshit, it nevertheless concluded by asking—nay, demanding—that creator Robert Kirkman confirm, once and for all, that it's not all a dream.
Then he messed with us:
I knew it!
