Robert Kirkman’s “The Walking Dead” Variants Free To Wizard World Attendees In 2013
It's comic con season, and Wizard World is already dishing out some awesome promos. Included with these promos is a list of guest that is more than impressive. But, as zombies are all the rage, and the Walking Dead continues to knock viewers and critics dead, WW has announced a special promo featuring a variant from Robert Kirkman himself.
From Wizard World:
Robert Kirkman, creator and writer of the groundbreaking, Eisner-Award winning The Walking Dead comic book series and graphic novels continues to break records in all of its incarnations. Wizard World and Skybound, Kirkman's imprint at Image Comics, have teamed to bring fans what they want, more of The Walking Dead! Now, all full-price attendees at every Wizard World event in 2013 will receive a limited-edition, exclusive cover variant of The Walking Dead #1.
A different superstar artist will create the variant cover art for each of the eight scheduled shows this year. Comic book writer/artist Michael Golden illustrates the first variant cover at Wizard World Portland Comic Con, Feb. 22-24 at the Oregon Convention Center. At each event, the cover artist will be on hand to sign fans’ copies. More cover artists will be announced shortly.
The exclusive The Walking Dead #1 editions will be produced in extremely limited quantities and are available to fans only while supplies last at each Wizard World convention.
“Wizard World cons have always been great events for The Walking Dead,” said Kirkman. “I’m excited to present the all-new #1 cover variant by the legendary Michael Golden at Portland Comic Con this year.”
