This Wednesday October 9, 2013, many Arizona Comic Stores will be hosting a midnight release party for the release of The Walking Dead #115. This is Image Comics kick-off event for the celebration of 10 years of Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard's epic comic book series.
The Walking Dead #115 will be available for purchase in advance, at midnight on the night before release, October 9, 2013. This will be the first issue of the 12-issue event “All Out War”.
Rick versus Negan at last. Rick and his group have allied with 2 other survivor groups The Kingdom, and The Hilltop and are ready to go to war against The Saviors led by Negan. There are always casualties in war, so it’s a pretty safe bet we will see some major characters die off. Kirkman has never been shy about killing off popular characters in this series, so no one is safe.
With this new storyline, Walking Dead is scheduled to begin shipping bi-weekly, so if you don’t have it already on your pull list, this would be a good time to talk to your local comic shop about adding it.
There are going to be many variant covers for this landmark issue available. Covers include, the regular cover, a blank sketch cover, and 10 interlocking covers by series artist Charlie Adlard. The 10 interlocking covers each feature a different key moment from that year of the series. There is also a special midnight release variant as well, as a one per store sketch variant. See slideshow for details.
The following Arizona Stores will be participating. Many of these stores already have events and sales planned.
