Official Press Release
BERKELEY, CA — 12 February, 2007 — For the second straight issue in
a row, THE WALKING DEAD has sold out. Image Comics is happy to
announce that they will be going back to press to satisfy the
incredible demand for THE WALKING DEAD #34. Last month’s disturbing
confrontation between Michonne and the Governor was the most
controversial issue of THE WALKING DEAD yet, and the buzz was so huge
that it’s carrying over. Month after month, more and more fans are
getting hooked on THE WALKING DEAD.
“Last month’s issue kicked everything up a notch — everyone wants to
find out what’s going to happen next,” says Image Comics Executive
Director Eric Stephenson. “It also didn’t hurt that the Governor was
named Wizard’s Villain of the Year for 2006. THE WALKING DEAD is
consistently one of our best selling titles, but clearly, we’re still
picking up readers.”
“With THE WALKING DEAD selling out from Image almost every issue,
it’s obvious this is a series that is constantly finding new
readers,” says Flying Colors store owner Joe Field. “We fortunately
have some left in stock — and we’re always happy to stock
aggressively and be able to turn new readers on to this most undead
If you were blown away by #33 and pounced on #34 as soon as it hit
the the stands, you are not going to believe what’s coming next in
THE WALKING DEAD. Watch out!
THE WALKING DEAD #34 will be back in stores in early March. Issue #35
is on sale February 28th.
