Fans will also receive a new look at the worldwide pop culture phenomenon with exclusive “Cutting Room Floor” commentary, revelations, pinups and more from Kirkman celebrating the secret history of the series.
“Francis Manapul’s incredible instincts when it comes to capturing memorable scenes made him the perfect choice as our next guest artist for this new set of connecting covers for The Walking Dead Deluxe,” said Amanda LaFranco, Editor, Skybound. “We find Rick and company on the road again in #55 and Francis immediately pulls us into that haunting atmosphere where memories from the past still linger. Things will begin to change for the group over this six-cover arc though, so be sure to look out for the second half!”
