Who would have dreamed the zombie apocalypse would involve so much reading? Well, Walking Dead TV show exec producer Robert Kirkman, for one. The undead drama is, of course, based on Kirkman’s longrunning comic — which recently celebrated its 100th issue — while the franchise has also spawned a series of novel prequels, the second of which, The Road To Woodbury, will be published Oct. 16, two days after the show’s third season premieres on AMC.
But don’t take off those reading glasses yet! This October will also see the debut of the The Walking Dead, The Official Magazine, a quarterly title featuring interviews with the cast, crew, and producers and other assorted behind-the-scenes malarkey.
The magazine hits stores Oct. 23, but those attending New York Comic-Con on Oct. 11 will be able to buy a special copy of the publication with a cover by Walking Dead artist Charlie Adlard, featuring the much loved zombie-decapitating character Michonne. The mag will be available for purchase at the Titan Entertainment booth (#832), but you can exclusively check out Adlard’s cover above and, in larger format, below.
