Skybound to celebrate 20 years of ‘THE WALKING DEAD’ with massive variant lineup & weekly drops this October!

Skybound will celebrate 20 years of Robert Kirkman‘s groundbreaking comic series THE WALKING DEAD this October with a huge series of variant releases and weekly drops!

The deluxe version of the series will see weekly releases throughout its anniversary month, all leading up to the legendary issue #75, now presented in glorious full color for the first time.

The Walking Dead Deluxe #1 will also be reprinted in a Newsprint Edition release.

On 8 October 2003, The Walking Dead #1 debuted in comic shops and began a historic run from creator Robert Kirkman that would change the face of pop culture. For nearly sixteen years, THE WALKING DEAD rewrote the rules of comic book storytelling, including its surprise ending at issue #193, and has since expanded to include special one-shots, graphic novels, video games and an unprecedented hit television franchise on the AMC network.
