Over on Skybound.com we have GIANT 6,000 pixel-wide versions of our Walking Dead-themed booth art! There IS a catch though—you’ll have to be a Skybound Insider. This costs a total of $0 a year. Nada. Zip. Zilch. We’ll email a couple times a month. But they’re good emails! And you get access to stuff like FREE comics (we recently posted ALL THREE Tech Jacket Digital Miniseries issues), previews, artwork, and more. We’ll ALSO be switching over our commenting system to link into the Insider program, and you’ll get rewarded for visiting the site, commenting, sharing articles, buying merch, etc. Pretty cool stuff.
ANYWAY, here’s the link to BOOTH ART!
And here’s a teeny tiny preview*:
*What is this?! A preview for ants?!
Any rough date on the commenting system connecting to Insider? It would be awesome to get some free merch!
Photoshop, After Effects, & now this?! Oh, it’s time to PLAY!!
There is something disconcerting about that more current image up there!!!
No Michonne. At all.
That is very disconcerting. 🙁
Yep. You got it! Ezekiel, too!
In other news; they’re debuting a Jesus action figure at NYCC!!!!!
Link a source for me to see? I was searching for exclusives & never found anything except variant covers. Got me all excited!
It’s been all over TWD comic twitter page. They’ve been releasing teaser images about NYCC. All three images have had the McFarlane Toys logo hidden in them; and the tag-lines in the teasers went like this- “In three days, HE rises”-“HE is coming.”-“What would HE do?”
Those are all clearly references to Jesus(Christ). Then coupled with the fact that the MacFarlane Toys logo is in every image, and the fact that each of the three images shows a different part of New York; added to the fact that NYCC starts today or tomorrow. It’s fairly obvious. LOL
Here’s the teaser images
I didn’t catch the McFarlane logo when I first saw these, wow!
Yeah, you can see it in the window on the subway train; and on the glass building front(which is the same building NYCC is being held in). But I can’t find it in the skyline picture.
Gotta look at it from a distance…at the lettering…you can see the middle of the logo especially in “Rises”.
OK, you sold me! They’re certainly keeping it under wraps, then! Isn’t NYCC next weekend tho?
Here’s one image I forgot.
Also, you’re right. NYCC is next week, on the 9th. So, I assume the “in 3 days HE rises” was mainly just the biblical reference(Christ’s death and resurrection taking 3 days).
Nonetheless; I think it’s pretty clear that a Jesus figure will be the NYCC exclusive.
I can’t wait; I got Ezekiel this year; and I finally broke down and got a Negan today. The only exclusives I don’t have are the Riot Gear Governor and cloaked Michonne.
I appreciate your spotlighting this! We were trying to debate what these images were on the New Reader Sale thread!
I have Negan. I just recently got that Riot Gear Governor. They’re both awesome! Better than the Series 3 Comic Andrea that I got, unfortunately!
I think I’m finally going to give in to collecting when this comes out. I’ve managed to talk myself out of going down that road until now. Jesus convinced me.
The Exclusives, IMO, are better in workmanship than the regular series. Once you get started, you won’t wanna stop….but being a TWD fan, you already know that’s a given, lol!
Where did you get this info? What about TWD VARIANTS?
But Mags and baby Hersh aren’t present either. So, I wouldn’t worry too much!
They’re there. They’re on a horse.
Ah, I see them now! They tucked them in back there.
Or perhaps they are so freaking TINY we just can’t see them. Who are those people in the upper right corner of the picture standing in a building?
They’re just random ASZ residents, part of Siddiq and Andrea’s construction crew who’s building the Hotel for the upcoming Fair!
I’m not too worried about the lack of certain characters. It is literally only showing the characters we’ve seen as of issue 130. (No Dante or Sophia, but Maggie and Hershel Jr.) We even see background characters like Olivia and Siddiq, just because they’ve already been shown at the beginning of the story arc. We don’t see Gregory, for example, but we know he’s alive, because he was mentioned by Maggie and Rick.
Although, why is Negan such a central character in this image? I don’t think that he will be important to the story anytime soon, but who knows?
“What is this?! A preview for ants?!” EXACTLY! Come on man!
Sign up, sign in, Chickie! Feel the love!
Sign up for Skybound Insider? I’m signed up and it’s still a tiny picture on there. Where do I see a bigger one?
Hit that link up there, then click on the image. It should open up to the larger spread.
Ok so who is the guy standing next to Heath?
A character I’m very excited to learn more about. His name literally translates to “truthful” or “most trustworthy”. So, I think he’s going to wind up being a pretty good guy.
Siddiq (صدیق Arabic word meaning “truthful”) is an Islamic term and is given as an Honorific title to certain individuals. The feminine gender for Siddiq is Siddiqah. The word is sometimes used as a title given to individuals by Muhammad, according to Islamic sources. Otherwise, it is used to denote that the person is totally trustworthy.
Ok I remember now! Ok so if he’s on this hopefully we’ll get to see more of him.
Ohhhhh…nevermind. Found it. That’s better!
LOL. yeah. Click the link to the Skybound site and bask in the glory of 6,000 pixel immensity!
@Brian Huntington How can we teach children to read if they can’t even fit inside the building?
The Derek Zoolander School for Kids Who Can’t Read Good!
Yes ! Someone got the reference
That damn Hansel… He’s so hot right now!
