To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Image Comics, Robert Kirkman's Skybound Entertainment will cut the cost of three of its February titles to 25 cents each.
The comics are "The Walking Dead" #163 by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard, "Invincible" #133 by Kirkman, Ryan Ottley and Nathan Fairborn, and "Outcast" #25 by Kirkman, Paul Azaceta and Elizabeth Breitwieser.
What's more, each issue will mark the start of a new storyline, and as such it will also serve as a jumping-on point for new and lapsed readers. Of the three, perhaps the most significant is "Invincible" #133, which begins the 12-part story arc that will bring the series to its conclusion.
"The Walking Dead" #163 kicks off the immediate aftermath of the Whisperer War storyline, while "Outcast" #25 promises "a major turning point in the series: "New characters are introduced and big things are in store for Kyle Barnes as he’s faced with something he never could have prepared for — hope."
To help retailers wishing to take advantage of the promotion, Skybound has also included order codes and distributor order cutoff dates for each title on its website.
