Ever wanted to go beyond the confines of the TV and learn more about the show ‘The Walking Dead?’ Now you can as Titan Magazines and Skybound (the publisher behind the long-running comic book series) have announced that they have joined together and will be launching ‘The Walking Dead, The Official Magazine’ in October.
The release of the magazine will coincide with the Season 3 debut of the show and feature an inside look at both the comic and the show that only an officially authorized magazine can. The magazine will include exclusive content including interviews with Robert Kirkman (executive producer/writer on the show), Glen Mazzara (showrunner/ executive producer/writer of the series), and David Alpert (executive producer of the series) as well as interviews with the stars of the series Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes), Sarah Wayne Callies (Lori Grimes), and Jon Bernthal (Shane).
‘The Walking Dead: The Official Magazine’ will be filled with 100 pages full of the latest news, revelations and tips for fans of both the television show and the graphic novels. There will also be an alternate cover featuring a colored zombie scene by ‘The Walking Dead’ artist Charlie Adlard that will only be available through comic book stores.
Regarding this announcement Kirkman commented, “This magazine will be your one stop destination for all the news pertaining to the comic, TV show, video game, toys, games, and whatever else exists in the ever-expanding Walking Dead universe! If it’s happening, you’ll find out all about it right here!”
Nick Landau, Titan Publisher, added: “We’re very excited to be publishing the quarterly The Walking Dead Magazine with Robert Kirkman and Skybound, which will be a once in a lifetime opportunity for fans to get unlimited access to the show and comic.”
‘The Walking Dead, The Official Magazine’ issue #1 will be available on newsstands and in specialty comic book stores in the US on October 23, in the UK on November 8 and Australia & New Zealand on December 18.
