Hot New Comics This Week and Why We Care, October 10th Releases

Oct 7

OK dear readers, are you ready for this weeks hottest new release? Obviously we're talking about The Walking Dead 15th anniversary spectacular, the coveted blind bag reprints of key issues and 1st appearances. These are going to be very cool, very hot, and limited in release.
 
As many of you know, The Walking Dead is one of our favorite comic books. It's the only comic Holly reads, and Jon makes it a top priority to keep up with new issues. Plus... well, as you know, Charlie Adlard has personally acknowledged that I am his #1 fan. Proof:
 
 
With that being said, even if we weren't Walking Dead superfans, this is still a super cool concept. Image is releasing new variants of key issues, all done by different artists. For each cover, there will be multiple variants - a sketch variant, virgin variants, virgin sketch variants, and even some with hand drawn original art. Some of the rare ones might even have a Kirkman or Adlard signature!
 
Now, I am a sucker for blind box items. I love the anticipation of what could be inside, the excitement of ripping into the packaging to unveil the contents, and I've even come to not mind the eventual disappointment of not getting what you really wanted. Because, let's face it - no one ever gets the premium item. But with these new blind bags, that will not be the case. You might not get a rare cover, but that's ok - imagine getting a regular cover of issue 19 (1st app Michonne). Are you sad? No, you are not. Yes, it's a reprint, and no, it is not worth the $450 or so that a near mint copy of the first printing can fetch, but some of these "regular variants" will certainly sell for $20 or more right out of the bag. Not too shabby for a $3.99 cover price. 
 
So, which issues are they doing? And who are the artists? We got you covered:
