What is The Walking Dead?
A tale of struggle and survival that has captivated the world. The Walking Dead, created by Robert Kirkman, is a post-apocalyptic story about the families, bonds, and trials that test those bonds in the most desperate of times. The Walking Dead centers on Rick Grimes, a Kentucky deputy who wakes from a coma to find that the dead have risen and now walk the earth, eating those who lay in their path.
On October 8, 2003, The Walking Dead #1 debuted in comic shops. For nearly sixteen years, The Walking Dead rewrote the rules of comic book storytelling, including its surprise ending at issue #193, and has since expanded to include special one-shots, graphic novels, video games, and an unprecedented hit television franchise on the AMC network.
The franchise continues to grow in new directions, from the Clementine YA graphic novels by superstar Tillie Walden to dynamic new interactive experiences like The Walking Dead: The Last Mile, The Walking Dead: Betrayal, and further expansion of AMC’s The Walking Dead universe.
Where can I read The Walking Dead?
All 193 issues of The Walking Dead have been collected and can be read in a series of 4 compendiums, 32 trade paperbacks, 16 hardcovers, or 8 oversized omnibuses. All volumes are available in the Skybound Store, along with Tillie Walden’s YA graphic novel Clementine.
What is The Walking Dead Deluxe?
With The Walking Dead Deluxe, fans can follow Rick Grimes’s journey again, from the very beginning, but this time in stunning full color by the masterful Dave McCaig. This deluxe version will feature a memorable array of variant covers commemorating major character introductions and the series’ most memorable twists and turns. Each issue will include a new installment of “The Cutting Room Floor,” featuring Robert Kirkman’s original handwritten plots along with commentary on abandoned storylines and things that may have changed along the way. This deluxe, definitive presentation of the story in full color will NOT be collected any time soon, so these single issues (available at your local comic shop) will be the only way to experience this.
