So you want to read The Walking Dead but don't want to commit yourself to buying the volumes? Well, Image Comics seems to have a solution for just that. Earlier this morning Image announced they would be reprinting single issues of The Walking Dead series starting with issue #1 starting on January 5th, 2011. That means that if you missed out on all of The Walking Dead fun and want to get in on the brain eating gore, then you can each week starting next year! Personally, I rather like this idea not only because it gives new readers the opportunity to pick up the comic without committing to a steep price tag; but also because there is something fun about looking forward to the next issue of a comic book each week. Not to mention, it is just in time for the new TV series! Here's the official word from The Walking Dead writer, Robert Kirkman.
If you haven't yet read up on The Walking Dead and would like to start, then look for the first four reprinted issues of the graphic novel this January, 2011 each week. Will you be picking up the reprints of the individual issues? Are you looking forward to the AMC Walking Dead television show?
"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."
