Skybound recently announced their schedule for this year’s New York Comic Con which includes autograph sessions and panel discussions featuring Robert Kirkman… and even more exclusive Walking Dead merch, of course!
The Walking Dead creator/writer Robert Kirkman and Skybound, his imprint at Image Comics, have special items and events planned for this year’s New York Comic-Con from October 10-14th. At NYCC, Kirkman will participate in panels including a question and answer session about his work, and a panel discussing the success of Skybound. Skybound will also debut two new hardcovers at NYCC: The Walking Dead Hardcover Compendium (Red Foil Version) will be a limited edition of 1500 for $100. The first-ever Thief of Thieves Hardcover, Volume 1, “I Quit” will debut with a limited edition of 1000, available for only $30. Both may be purchased at the Skybound booth, #1229, along with all your favorite Skybound titles, t-shirts and merchandise.
In New York, Kirkman will also be signing copies of The Road to Woodbury, his and Jay Bonansinga’s latest Walking Dead novel for St. Martin’s Press. The book is the sequel to last year’s bestseller, The Rise of the Governor, and will be released October 16th.
Skybound will also keep you posted on where you can buy The Walking Dead: The Official Magazine, which debuts from Titan/Skybound on October 23 and features an interview with Kirkman and The Walking Dead artist Charlie Adlard, and is chock full of art, news and interviews from the entire The Walking Dead universe.
How exactly will Kirkman sign copies of The Road to Woodbury before it’s even released? Sounds like some of you lucky fans may get your grubby little hands on advanced copies of the new Walking Dead novel!
Anyway, there’s a lot going on at the New York Comic Con this year including an epic Walking Dead panel featuring nearly every cast member from AMC’s hit series! So swing by the official website for dates and times, a list of celebrity guests and ticket information.
