The Art of AMC’s The Walking Dead Universe Gets a Cover by Brian Rood

AMC NetworksSkybound Entertainment, and Image Comics revealed the historic new cover to The Art of AMC’s The Walking Dead Universe from iconic illustrator Brian Rood. This all-new cover marks the first time that the casts of AMC’s three iconic TWD series—The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, and The Walking Dead: World Beyond—have ever been featured in the same piece of art, and includes the artist’s rendition of over 50 (!) cast members, along with a multitude of terrifying Walkers.

Available at comic shops on September 29, and everywhere books are sold on October 5, The Art of AMC’s The Walking Dead Universe is an in-depth compilation of behind-the-scenes pre-production and production art from all three of AMC’s iconic The Walking Dead series and will feature never-before-seen original sketches, concept art, storyboards, special product illustrations, and more from the shows inspired by Robert Kirkman’s comic book turned pop-culture phenomenon.  

Marking AMC Networks’ first venture into book publishing, The Art of AMC’s The Walking Dead Universe also features an introduction by Chief Content Officer of  The Walking Dead  Universe Scott M. Gimple and fun facts from creators and crew members on all three series.

The Art of AMC’s The Walking Dead Universe can be pre-ordered now everywhere books are sold, in both print and digital formats. Plus, fans will soon be able to pre-order an exclusive special variant edition that will be available on  Skybound.com  and a second exclusive special variant edition that will be available on  TWDUshop.com, both in super limited quantities.

Skybound and Ameet Publishing Partner for LEGO Comic Book Deal

LEGO logo

Skybound and AMEET have announced a partnership to launch LEGO branded comics. The first comic will debut in 2022 and be published by Image and Skybound.

It’ll be interesting to see what is released and what can be released. LEGO has licensing deals with Marvel and DC and it’s unknown if this deal would allow Skybound to release comics featuring those properties.

This is a big step for Skybound which has been slowly moving into licensed comics and entertainment moving beyond their creator-owned roots. The publisher has released comics based on video game properties and has dipped its toes into crowdfunding. Over the years, the company has been expanding itself beyond its roots in comic releases by founder Robert Kirkman expanding the creators whose comics are being released under the publishing label, moving into television, video games, merchandise, board games, and more.

The first LEGO comic release will be announced in the coming months.
