Well I just got done telling you that Skybound is growing. Proof of that? We've decided to add yet another team member. Help us welcome Chris O'Brien, who will be helping us out on the Social Media side! Chris moved to LA from Rhode Island a couple years ago. When he's not slinging tweets, Chris acts and writes. He seems like a good kid, we'll see if the weight of The Escape and SDCC can crush him.
For the time being Chris is focused primarily on the Escape (here's the Twitter, here's the Facebook) side of things, but he'll be helping out everywhere else (Skybound Twitter and Facebook, our main Walking Dead Twitter and Facebook, and the comments sections of our sites) as he gets time.
The winners of The London Book Fair International Book Industry Excellence Awards were announced, and Robert Kirkman & Skybound won the Crossmedia Award for Best Use of IP!
We’re stoked for Robert and proud that Skybound was recognized with such a prestigious award from the London Book Fair!

In case you missed it in the Twittersphere, Norman Reedus recently posted a selfie from the set of our upcoming movie, AIR. We're keeping a tight lid on this one, but if Norman wants to send out a little tease, we can't stop him! So here you go!
Keep your peepers peeped here for more info and looks at AIR, starring Norman Reedus and Djimon Hounsou.
After collaborating on the Rise of the Governor novels, Robert Kirkman and Jay Bonansinga are teaming up once more for another The Walking Dead book series. The series will be four books long, the first of which is titled Descent and will be released by Thomas Dunne Books/St. Martin’s Press on October 14th 2014.
The new novel will feature Lilly Caul as she returns to Woodbury and attempts to rebuild it after the Governor’s failed prison assault.
Robert Kirkman is excited to be expanding the Walking Dead universe even more. He said of the upcoming book, “I’m thrilled to be working with Jay Bonansinga on more novels. There is quite a bit of unexplored territory left in the Walking Dead universe and I think people are going to love what Jay brings to this world in this medium.”
October 14th! Mark your calendars!
