I know someone major dies.

Seeing as how I'm about 90-odd issues behind, I'll bow out of this now.

Both Savage Dragon and Spawn are over 200, but they've been around longer than 15 years. Back when having books in the multi-hundreds was no big deal. But yeah, if reaching 100 is rare, reaching 200 nowadays is like lightning hitting the shark just as it bites you while you're winning the lottery.

Also, if you'd consider Uncanny X-Men Vol. 1 to be one of the longest-running series, even with a name change, a years-long hiatus, and a stint as a reprint title, you could easily count G.I.Joe, with a lengthy hiatus and publisher switch. And probably Transformers (longer hiatus, publisher switch, and name change). As for consistently-running, though, that won't happen.

Yeah, I don't count those. Same way I don't count The Darkness. Which also hit the 100 milestone back in 2007. But it took like four series to get there. No doubt Rob will release Youngbloood 100 in a few years. But that took 100 oneshots to get there.

Someone left Compendium 2 at work the other day. It was the Public Library's copy that got left in a theatre or something. It sat in the counter for a few days with no one claiming it, so I "borrowed" it and took it home to read.

After the events of the prison here what happened in a nutshell, Rick and Carl meet up with Michonne and eventually the other survivors(Glenn, Maggie, Andrea, Dale etc).
They meet up with Abraham and his group and head for D.C.
Maggie tries to hang herself.
They head back to Rick's hometown to scrounge for weapons and Morgan joins them.
Ben kills his twin Billy and Carl shoots Ben.
They find the priest guy.
Dale gets bit and then taken by the cannibals. Rick and the others brutally murder the cannibals.
Eventually they make it to the Alexandria compound and meet Doug Monroe and a bunch of new characters.
Rick kills Pete and starts banging his wife.
There's a huge herd of zombies breaks into the compound. Several people die. Carl gets shot in the face and loses his eye.
Rick takes over the compound and meets Jesus who takes him to Hilltop.

That gets me up to issue 96, but thanks to Internet spoilers, I know a couple longtime characters die in in issues 98 and 100.

The number of longtime characters left is significantly reduced at this point. Rick, Carl, Michonne, Maggie, Andrea, and Sophia are the only ones anyone would care about if they got killed. Everybody else is just zombie fodder at this point. And for all I know, one or more of those people have died in the last 30 issues.
