The Walking Dead Issue 100 Wraparound Cover

Hey Skybounders!

Check out the wraparound cover to The Walking Dead issue 100.

From USA Today:

There won't be any candles involved when the hit comic book The Walking Dead turns 100 issues old this summer. Instead, and more apropos for a zombie-filled horror series, there will be lots and lots of dead bodies.

"You can't see it, but (hero cop) Rick is actually holding a birthday cake in his hand. Or, I guess, his only hand," creator Robert Kirkman says of the cover to Walking Dead issue 100, out July 11 from Skybound/Image Comics.

Boosted by the success of the AMC television adaptation, The Walking Dead is the highest-selling trade-paperback and hardcover series in comics — last month, it took all 10 spots on Amazon's top 10 list of graphic novels.

So Kirkman wanted the 100th cover to be worthy enough for a landmark not many indie comics obtain. The image, by series artist Charlie Adlard, features a pile of corpses, including every prominent character who's died in the series, from the evil Governor to Lori, wife of cop Rick Grimes.

As an executive producer on the TV series, Kirkman realizes that the cover may be a bit of a spoiler for fans of the show.

Says Kirkman, whose comic Thief of Thieves has also been tapped as a series by AMC: "The whole goal is to have the comic and the show exist separately so that one doesn't spoil the other."

Issue 100 falls right in the "dead center" of what he calls the "craziest" story arc so far in the comic series, a bloody affair that finds Rick and his group of survivors thriving in a (seemingly) safe community, much like they did at the prison — a place of refuge that was hinted at during the second season finale of the Walking Dead TVseries.

Fan favorites from the comic, such as the Governor and female warrior Michonne, will also play important roles in the new TV season, Kirkman says, but "there's going to be a lot of new stuff, too, and a lot of twists and turns that alter some of the stories told from the comic."

He's been hard at work on writing the comic since fall of 2003, yet Kirkman still feels like he's on issue 10.

"I really do want to do this for decades," he says. "I'm thrilled that it still feels like I have a full tank of gas."
