Image Comics and Skybound Entertainment announce "Walking Dead Day"
You know what The Walking Dead is. It's at once one of the best-selling comics on the stands and one of the highest-rated, most popular shows on television. Even if you've never read the comic or seen the show you know that The Walking Dead is a thing.
And this year, that "thing" turns 15.
Yes, the brainchild of Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard debuted way back in 2003 and its popularity continues to grow with each passing year. To commemorate this, Image Comics and Skybound Entertainment have joined together for not one but two special events: the very first issue of the series will get a special 15th anniversary reprinting, and an entire day will be set aside and celebrated as "The Walking Dead Day." That's a lot of zombi-- err, "undead walkers."
