Even though The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman and chums has ended, it seems unlikely that this will be the end, end. Kirkman's biggest hit across all media, there will be ways to return. Such as the Negan Lives special. Such as the colourisation of the original series. The films. And the pop-up editions of the comics. You know it's going to happen.
And artist Charlie Adlard will keep coming back too. Which means that even though the first issues of The Walking Dead were drawn by Tony Moore, we have a leak of the connected covers for the first issues being drawn by Adlard. Here are all six. More to come?
I understand that orders on the new Walking Dead #1 have topped 80,000 already with an FOC not due for a week-and-a-half. Given that Robert Kirkman has had Dave McCaig colouring The Walking Dead for the past five years, one might also wonder what else he has planned in that time period? Here are those interlocked Charlie Adlard covers one by one, as well as a preview of the first coloured issue.
