Everyone best knows 'The Walking Dead' character Daryl for his iconic crossbow, and even his stylish season 3 poncho to a degree. 'The Walking Dead' season 4 will soon shamble out its Comic-Con 2013 panel as well as a season 4 trailer, so why wait to get a new look at the season via Daryl's stylish new accessory? Hint: it's both fashionable, and functional!

Courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, the latest photo from 'The Walking Dead' season 4 sees Daryl mask up in a bandana, most likely to protect against the putrid smell of zombie flesh rather than rob a bank, but you never know! Could Daryl have maybe broken the "30 Days Without An Accident" mantra? We might even find out the reason for Daryl's fashion choice next week in the newest trailer at Comic-Con.

While we wait for season 4, the next run of ‘The Walking Dead’ will introduce ‘The Wire’ star Lawrence Gilliard, Jr. as haunted Army medic Bob Stookey, while actors Chad Coleman, Sonequa Martin-Green and Emily Kinney have all been upgraded to series regulars. AMC earlier confirmed that David Morrissey’s villainous Governor would also return in season 4 as a series regular.

Well, what are you waiting for? Ladies and gentlemen, prepare to swoon via the latest 'Walking Dead' season 4 photo below, and give us your predictions for the new season in the comments, as we wait for the October premiere!
