Three of the coolest, most badass characters of The Walking Dead are now giving you the sexy staredown from the cover of TV Guide.

Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), Michonne (Danai Gurira) and Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) are featured in three collectible issues of the magazine, out now to promote the midseason return of TWD Season 4.

Which one of those three characters is most likely to survive the zombie apocalypse, do you think? Rick’s cover doesn’t show him as beat-up as we saw him on Episode 9, when he had to cede a lot of responsibility to his puddin’-loving son. In fact, his cover looks thoughtful and almost gentle. Maybe this is Rick’s future? Andy told TV Guide we shouldn’t count his character out just yet. “Rick has the resilience of a hundred people,” he said. "If ever there was a human being who could lead again, it's him." Long live The Ricktator!

Episode 9 ended with Michonne reuniting with the Grimes guys, so now our focus shifts to the dozen other people we know, including Daryl. He escaped the prison with Beth Greene (Emily Kinney) and he apparently thinks they are the last people alive. However, Norman said Daryl and Beth will not have a romantic relationship. They will get to know each other better, though, and teach each other life lessons.

"I always like us on the run," Norman told TV Guide, comparing the pace of the second half to a Motörhead concert. (!) "This show is constantly a moving target, and without a doubt, the back half of this season is the best bunch of episodes we've ever shot. You find out what makes each character tick and what they stand up and fight for."

What will Pookie stand up and fight for? And what cover do you like best of the three? Check them out here. Will you buy any or all of them?

The Walking Dead Season 4 airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
