More Fans Have Been Bitten by THE WALKING DEAD's New Suspense-Packed Story Arc

December 17, 2013

Issue #117, the third chapter of ALL OUT WAR, goes to second printing to meet demand

The long-running, critically-acclaimed series that inspired the hit TV show has a new story arc… and it’s sold out for the third straight issue. ALL OUT WAR continues in THE WALKING DEAD #117, by creator Robert Kirkman and artist Charlie Adlard, as Rick and Negan's forces tally up the casualties of their first epic battle. Fans of the TV show who are currently going through withdrawals until the season picks up again next year can jump back into the action with the comic series.

In THE WALKING DEAD #117, Negan and Rick both discover flaws in their plans. Decisions are made, hope is renewed, and the stage is set for the next installment of ALL OUT WAR.

“So far, this bi-weekly event is living up to its name and expectations.”
—Augie De Blieck, Jr., Comic Book Resources

“Gaudiano's inks bring a newfound level of sharpness and clarity to Charlie Adlard's pencils. The action hits harder and the storytelling flows better as a result.”
—Jesse Schedeen, IGN

“So far this arc is truly unlike anything Kirkman has done before. Which is no easy feat after writing the same series for ten years. With any luck the fantastic pacing will keep up and we'll be treated to a new gold standard of zombie story by year’s end.” —Jimbus_Christ, Bloody Disgusting
