THIRTY-FIVE WALKING DEAD TEAM-UP VARIANTS TO INFECT IMAGE COMICS SERIES THIS OCTOBER

First Herd of Nine Walking Dead Team-Up Variants Unleashed

PORTLAND, Ore. 07/26/2023 — Image Comics is pleased to announce a line of exciting team-up variants in celebration of Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead hitting its milestone 20 year anniversary. These variant covers will infect Image Comics titles all through October and feature Image artists’ unique interpretations of the iconic horror series’ characters.

The first nine Walking Dead team-up variants revealed this week feature artwork by such comics superstars as Skottie Young (on I Hate Fairyland #10), Declan Shalvey (on Time Before Time #28), Dean Rankin (on Untold Tales of I Hate Fairyland #4), Andrea Sorrentino (on Tenement #5), Stefano Simeone (on connecting variants for: No/One #7, Radiant Black #28 covers C & D, Rogue Sun #17, and The Dead Lucky #10).

“The impact of The Walking Dead on Image Comics is immeasurable, and Image would be the company it is today without it,” said Eric Stephenson, Publisher at Image Comics. “It’s hard to believe it’s been a full 20 years since the series first began, but it’s thrilling to see so many current Image creators contribute to the celebration of its anniversary.”

The Walking Dead first launched in 2003 from Image Comics and garnered critical acclaim and an escalating sales track-record before Hollywood picked up the hot IP and the series was adapted from TV by AMC in 2010. It was also in 2010 that Kirkman teamed up with David Alpert to launch the multiplatform entertainment company, Skybound Entertainment, which would expand his—and others’—IP beyond comics into other mediums. The Walking Dead has since gone on to become a pop culture phenomenon inspiring everything from hit video games, novelizations, merchandise, and a multitude of multimedia spin-offs across the walker universe. The series has sold over 45 million copies across multiple formats and has been translated into 21 languages globally.
