As Walking Dead fans continue to bask in the full-color splendor of their favorite comic with The Walking Dead Deluxe, they’ve got a special treat in store for them this July. Get ready for 5 connecting variant covers courtesy of red-hot artist Conor Hughes! Feast on the eye candy after these official deets from your chums at Skybound HQ…
Today Skybound revealed a striking set of all-new The Walking Dead Deluxe connecting variant covers from superstar artist Conor Hughes (White Ash, The Game). Covering the “Life Among Them” arc of the landmark comic series, Hughes’ covers showcase notable scenes from the survivors’ gruesome journey to the Alexandria Safe-Zone.
These all-new covers will appear as variants to The Walking Dead Deluxe #67-72, with each issue presenting the series in full color format for the first time from writer/creator Robert Kirkman, with art by Charlie Adlard and colors by Dave McCaig. Fans will also receive a new look at the worldwide pop culture phenomenon with pinups and exclusive “Cutting Room Floor” commentary by Kirkman, celebrating the secret history of the series.
“Conor’s covers transition us into a new chapter for THE WALKING DEAD DELUXE comic series… the long-awaited arrival at Alexandria,” said Amanda LaFranco, Editor, Skybound Entertainment. “The first three covers in this set really capture the intensity of life on the road, as the group pushes towards Washington D.C., and walkers are still very much a concern through the metropolitan city. But it’s the final three covers that emphasize the eerie calm of what life is like in this new settlement for our group. Michonne may be hanging up her sword, but for how long?”
The Walking Dead Deluxe #67 (Diamond codes listed below | $3.99) will be available at comic book shops and digital platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play on Wednesday, July 19, 2023.
