I don’t know if you’ve been keeping track, but The Walking Dead is a pretty big deal. It started as an awesome comic by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard, then became a pop culture sensation as an AMC show (about to start its 3rd season on October 14th). So what’s the next step to turn us into “walkers” ourselves? The Walking Dead magazine from Titan Magazines and Skybound. We have a press release direct from the source celebrating its impending release, with three covers: 1) The newsstand cover featuring Danai Gurira as Michonne, 2) the alternate cover featuring a boatload of zombies from the pen of Charlie Adlard and 3) the exclusive NYC Comic Con cover, a Michonne cover rendered by Adlard.
You can still preorder on Diamond in advance of its October 13th release (well timed, sirs), or check their website.
