Brian K Vaughan, the creator of Saga and Paper Girls has written a final bonus comic for The Walking Dead. And it’s being exclusively released on Local Comic Shop Day!
As you probably know by now, The Walking Dead comic ended abruptly this year without warning after 15 years of undead walkers changing comics forever.
And a lot of The Walking Dead fans are lost for what to read next.
(We recommend checking out Oblivion Song)
Meanwhile fans of Saga have been struggling through that bestselling comic’s hiatus. Even the ones who were enjoying Paper Girls have been left without as that story has also finished!
Well, on Local Comic Shop Day we have something special for all of you!
Brian K Vaughan, the writer behind Saga, has teamed with his regular collaborator Marcos Martin to create an exclusive extra story in the world of The Walking Dead…
The Walking Dead: The Alien!
It has been previously available digitally as part of the Panel Syndicate digital comics platform, but it has NEVER been in print before.
Local Comic Shop Day is the ONLY way you’ll be able to score a real world physical copy of this amazing one shot comic.
A black-and-white story firmly set in THE WALKING DEAD comic book continuity.
“The 28-page story does not disappoint. While the regular comic has explored life in a world where zombies have overrun the United States, The Alien is more global.”-THE NEW YORK TIMES
“For die-hard fans of The Walking Dead comics, digital one-shot The Walking Dead: The Alien is a must-read.”-THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
“Amazing. Easily one of the best comics ever to sport the “Walking Dead” name, The Walking Dead: The Alien showcases two talented creators at the top of their game. 9,5.”-IGN
“Set in Barcelona, it immediately establishes itself as a vital companion to the titular behemoth because it’s the first time in TWD that we are afforded a global perspective of the undead epidemic. Fantastic work and not to be missed. 10 out of 10”-NEWSARAMA
“Two more comics superstars have entered the zombie apocalypse with a beautiful side story. A well-executed, self-contained exemplar of the kinds of stories that can happen in this depressing world.”-KOTAKU
So how do you get a copy?
Will it be put aside for people with a standing order?
No, I’m afraid not.
Can you order a copy online, or reserve a copy ahead of time?
No, I’m afraid that’s not allowed either.
