Image/Skybound’s 'The Walking Dead Deluxe' Gets Six Stunning Charlie Adlard Connecting Covers

Image/Skybound Entertainment is pleased to reveal a series of six highly collectible, connecting variant covers by Charlie Adlard, which will be unleashed over the course of the first story arc of The Walking Dead Deluxe full color editions. The iconic independent series that took the entertainment world by storm 17 years ago—The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman (Fire Power, Oblivion Song) and Charlie Adlard (Vampire State Building)—will be reissued starting in October as The Walking Dead Deluxe and fully colored by Dave McCaig.

These Deluxe editions of the series will also feature a variety of other variants—including covers by David Finch, Tony Moore, Julian Totino Tedesco, and Arthur Adams—commemorating major character introductions and the series’ most memorable twists and turns. Each issue will include a new installment of “The Cutting Room Floor,”  featuring Kirkman's original handwritten plots along with commentary on abandoned storylines and plot points that may have changed along the way.

The Walking Dead Deluxe issues will NOT be collected into trade paperback any time soon, so fans and new readers should not trade-wait to experience this fully colored edition of the popular survival horror series. See each individual connecting variant cover for the first six issues below:

The Walking Dead Deluxe #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, October 7. Check out some of the other covers available to preorder now:
