Welcome back from the holiday, Skybound fans!
In this week’s installment of “Seven Questions with Sina Grace,” I got to take a break from asking Charlie the same questions about deadlines, and spend some time discussing more light-hearted topics.
Take a read, and make sure to head to your local comic shop this Wednesday to pick up Walking Dead #98!
1- Easiest question: did you really think when you started on The Walking Dead that you would be drawing the same series almost ten years later?
Of course not!
To be honest, I didn't think I'd last the first 6 issues. When I first got offered the book, I simultaneously got offered Warlock from Marvel. Foolishly I believed that "obviously" Warlock would be the one that would last and consequentially got in touch with Robert and Eric to say that I'd do the 6 issue arc of TWD and then carry on with the Marvel book. If it wasn't for VERY persuasive e-mails back from them asking for me to stay, I'd have finished TWD and then have Warlock cancelled from under me 4 issues in. Thankfully, I decided to do both at the same time - Warlock was cancelled - which left the way forward for TWD.
Can you imagine what I'd be feeling now if I'd have done what I'd originally planned?
Don't these guys look handsome. For those of you who don't know, we've got Robert Kirkman at the center top. Sina Grace on the bottom left. And Charlie Adlard on the bottom Right. Rus Wooton will also be providing signature cards for the set.

Chad here, with another set of foreign covers to compare. This week we’re choosing to showcase INVINCIBLE volume 5, in France and Italy. Western Europe actually contains a huge comic book-loving population, so most of our books exist in these territories, especially a title as big as INVINCIBLE.
Which one do you like more, and why? Let’s discuss in the comments!
Welcome Skybound Folks!
Sina Grace, your faithful Editorial Director here, with a new segment on the site I like to call "Seven Questions with Sina Grace." Week in and week out, I will be chatting with your favorite Skybound creators, and asking questions that fans will find both exciting and informative.
Robert took a minute off from writing Walking Dead 100 to kick things off... woo hoo!
1 – What’s a genre of comics you haven’t written that you’d like to take a stab at?
Honestly? At some point in the future I'm dying to do a romance comic. Just something about normal people falling in love, no zombies, no aliens, no superheroes, just a straight human story. So, yeah... ROMANCE. I think it'd be cool.
