Hey, look at this! It's the variant cover for The Walking Dead #1 that will be given exclusively to full-priced attendees of Wizard World: Philadelphia!
Julian Totino Tedesco did a beautiful job, don't you think?
Us Skybounders are unable to make to Philly this time (something about our cheesesteak and Tastykake expenses from last month's Escape?) but The Walking Dead will be repped by Norman Reedus, Michael Rooker, and Jon Bernthal so you're in good hands.
Michonne meets Ezekiel in this week's new issue of THE WALKING DEAD. I promise: swords will be drawn...
Also, be sure to pick up THIEF OF THIEVES Vol. 2: "HELP ME." James Asmus and Shawn Martinbrough absolutely crush this arc. Conrad can't escape from his life of crime, especially when his son gets into deep debt with the Cartel.
Catch up in time for the release of THIEF OF THIEVES #14 at the end of the month -- and the first issue of Andy Diggle's story: "The Venice Job."
The call has gone out to every hero in the universe: stop the Dragon, or find a new planet to protect. Phil Hester, Todd Nauck & Gabe Eltaeb kick off this new series in style!
With Maximus out of the picture, the reign of Tyrannosaurus X begins! His first action: make Derek Dynamo and SD extinct. By the Jurassic team of Robert Kirkman, Jason Howard & Cliff Rathburn!
WITCH DOCTOR: MAL PRACTICE concluded this week with issue number 6 and it went out with a bang! Here's what the critics said:
Newsarama: "While their debut arc was strong, there is no doubt, Mal Practice solidifies both Seifert and Ketner as some of comics' fastest-rising stars." 9 out of 10
CBR: "...satisfyingly ends the mini-series in a clever way while still giving the reader plenty to chew on... There's a lot to recommend this comic for, above and beyond the genre it starts in." 4 out of 5
AICN: "Anyone looking for an entertaining way to do magic in comics should look no further than WITCH DOCTOR."
Gamma Squad: "Brandon Seifert throws some absolutely hilarious curveballs in this final issue for the Witch Doctor mini, turning what could have been a fairly standard finale into a riot. Lukas Ketner meanwhile delivers his usual top-notch artwork, and emphasizes the humor even more. If you haven’t been following this series, pick it up; it’s one of the funniest, and best, books on the stands."
