Tony Moore, who drew the first six issues of "The Walking Dead," has returned to create a variant cover for the series' 150th issue (via IGN). In the new cover, Moore homages the series' debut issue, which only goes to show how much Rick has gone through since he woke up to the zombie apocalypse. Moore has also created 28 covers for the series since it began.
"It's indisputable that reaching issue 150 is a huge achievement in comics," writer Robert Kirkman said in statement. "Charlie Adlard and Team Walking Dead have been working tirelessly for over a decade to get us to this milestone and now it's time to celebrate. It's an honor to have comic book pals Jason Latour and Ryan Ottley bringing their vision to these iconic characters. Additionally, words cannot describe how excited I am to have Tony Moore, artist of the first 6 issues, returning to provide a cover for this special event."
"Southern Bastards" artist Jason Latour and "Invincible's" Ryan Ottley have also created variants for the issue. Stefano Gaudiano, Cliff Rathburn and Rus Wooton have also contributed to the variant covers.
The issue will also run with the standard Charlie Adlard cover and blank sketch variant.
"The Walking Dead" #150 is scheduled to arrive at retailers on January 13.
