No Kirkman will not be going the way of DC or Marvel and turning out watered down weekly releases of new Walking Dead. Instead he will be going the route of DC and Marvel and reprinting old issues and charging more money for them, than when they were originally released. Some where in the PR info below you’ll notice they say it’s a great way for followers of the series to patch holes in their collection… The only way I could do that is to pay an outrageousness amount for the under-printed second issue. The series is dead to me after issue 52 or whenever the hell the prison nonsense wrapped up. Any ways I’m sure someone out there is happy about the reprints and it ties in perfectly with the TV shows release… enjoy! Also you can buy these books digitally for $2 bucks… just give you options!
Are you excited about THE WALKING DEAD on AMC, but you’ve never had the chance to read the hit comic book series that inspired it? Starting in January 2011, Image Comics will be reprinting the single issues of the hit series — shipping one issue per week all year long!
“Keeping a series like this going year after year is all about creating good jumping-on-points for new readers,” says series creator and writer Robert Kirkman. “And what better way to jump on than with the very first issue? Making this series available in single issue form will make it easier for new fans to jump on board and for old fans to fill in any gaps in their collection.”
January will see the release of the following issues:
Starting in this issue, Rick Grimes awakens to a world he’s not prepared for. This small town cop must now fight the forces of the undead while he searches for his missing wife and son. This is the issue that started it all!
THE WALKING DEAD WEEKLY #2
Rick Grime’s horrific adventure continues. Everything he knew is gone, and the search for his family begins. Rick sets out for Atlanta, the last known location of his wife and son.
THE WALKING DEAD WEEKLY #3
Now reunited with his family, Rick Grime’s focus shifts from survival to protection. It’s one thing to know that you have to watch your back every second of every day. It’s another thing entirely to have to worry about losing your family in the blink of an eye.
THE WALKING DEAD WEEKLY #4
It is decided that in order to survive… every person at the camp should have guns. As it is, they don’t have enough to go around and the only place to get more guns is the city, but it means certain death to go into the city. Is Rick crazy enough to risk his life for the good of the camp?
You will also be able to pick up THE WALKING DEAD OMNIBUS, VOL. 3 in January 2011. Collecting issues #49-72, the OMNIBUS is a deluxe oversized and slipcased hardcover. It’s perfect for long time fans, new readers and anyone needing a heavy object with which to fend off the walking dead. The omnibus is strictly limited to a print run of 3000.
THE WALKING DEAD WEEKLIES (#1: NOV100410; #2: NOV100411; #3: NOV100412; #4: NOV100413), each a 32-page black-and-white comic book for $2.99, will be in stores each Wednesday of January 2011.
