They do that quite a bit to fans of the comic. Like the not-rape scene with Maggie was pretty tense because in the comic he raped Michonne. There are also funny little homages they do to the comic.
I will say the Dixon brothers are one of the best things about the show and they obviously aren't comic characters at all.
