Image Comics/Skybound Entertainment will re-release Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard‘s now legendary independent series, The Walking Dead, in full colour for the very first time this October.
Featuring the stunning work of artist and colourist Dave McCaig, these new issues will launch on 7 October 2020 with The Walking Dead Deluxe #1.
Kirkman first announced the fully colored issues during Skybound Xpo, Skybound’s virtual pop-culture convention.
This deluxe revival of the series will also feature a memorable array of variant covers—by such artists as David Finch, Tony Moore, Julian Totino Tedesco, and Arthur Adams —commemorating major character introductions and the series’ most memorable twists and turns.
Each issue will include a new installment of “The Cutting Room Floor,” featuring Kirkman’s original handwritten plots along with commentary on abandoned storylines and plot points that may have changed along the way.
This definitive presentation of the story will NOT be collected into trade paperback any time soon, so fans and new readers should not trade-wait to experience this fully coloured edition of the popular survival horror series.
Each following month two issues will be released.
