Beast mode!

AMC just revealed The Walking Dead Season 5 banner poster that will be displayed at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, which starts later this week (woo hoo!).


As you can see, we have something of a chain gang happening, showing seven characters handcuffed in the Terminus train car: Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs), Michonne (Danai Gurira), Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus), Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun), Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohan) and Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz) look ready for action.

At some point, Rick should probably take off that heavy coat. He looks great in it, but he must be ready to sweat to death. Carl looks pretty badass, though — he's growing up so fast! And it's worth noting that Abraham, who was just introduced in the back half of Season 4, made the cut with six other main characters. There are actually 12 people in that train car, and some have been with us longer than Abraham, but he's clearly a big deal if he's with Rick's A-list crew.

The Walking Dead Comic Con panel will be held Friday, July 25 at 12:20 p.m. PDT, and after that point we’ll be poised and ready to post the first Season 5 trailer, and share whatever cool teasers the cast and crew release. They may even confirm a specific October premiere date (Sunday, October 12 is the running guess, but it has yet to be made official).

What do you think about the S5 banner? Do you love that Daryl is front and center? Glad to see Abraham make the cut? Wish they showed more of the cast?
