The Walking Dead Goes Full Color in October

Read it again! Image Comics and Skybound Entertainment will revisit the historic independent series that took the entertainment world by storm 17 years ago—The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard—with newly, fully colored issues. Featuring the stunning work of the masterful Dave McCaig, these new issues will launch in October with The Walking Dead Deluxe #1. Kirkman announced the fully colored issues during Skybound Xpo, Skybound’s virtual pop-culture convention, earlier today.

This deluxe revival of the series will also feature a memorable array of variant covers—by such artists as David Finch, Tony Moore, Julian Totino Tedesco, and Arthur Adams—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 Kirkman’s original handwritten plots along with commentary on abandoned storylines and plot points that may have changed along the way.

This definitive presentation of the story will NOT be collected into trade paperback any time soon, so fans and new readers should not trade-wait to experience this fully colored edition of the popular survival horror series. Issue #1 will be available on October 7. Each following month two issues will be released.

Get a First Look at Justice League #40 by Rob Venditti and Doug Mahnke

“Invasion of the Supermen” begins with the Eradicator!

A new era of Justice League starts with an unexpected arrival from the stars, bringing a dire warning: a new breed of conquerors is on the march. Led by Superman’s nemesis Eradicator, a genetically engineered, super-powered strike team has come to subjugate Earth.

Justice League is DC’s premier team book,” says writer Rob Venditti, “and we’ll be focusing on exactly that: Team. Teams are powerful, but they’re also messy. Everyone isn’t always on the same page with the same ideas about what’s best for the group. Even more so when the team is made up of the most accomplished superheroes in the world, and they’re tackling world-ending crises. The threats that the Justice League faces will pull from the mythologies of the individual characters and test the team as never before. Both outside and within.”

To aid the Justice League, Batman makes the unprecedented decision of enlisting an ancient, unrivaled power—which calls into question who, exactly, is in charge. With the League on unsure footing, will they be ready to save the world?

“Working with Doug Mahnke is a dream,” continues Venditti. “He’s one of those top-level artists that I never thought I’d be fortunate enough to work with, much less on a book as big as Justice League. His body of work proves that he’s an absolute master of these characters. I couldn’t be more excited.”

Writer Rob Venditti and artists Doug Mahnke, Richard Friend and David Barron join Justice League to launch “Invasion of the Supermen” on February 5th!
