Robert Kirkman took the stage during Image Expo this week to announce a twelve-issue arc for The Walking Dead, titled “All Out War.” During the arc, issues will be shipped bi-weekly over seven months beginning in October.
This year marks the tenth anniversary of the popular comic book series. Kirkman told the audience that after 10 years, “It’s time to rebuild civilization. With civilization comes conflict.”
TheWalkingDead.com also announced the names of the artists working on “All Out War”:
Coinciding with the new arc is some personnel additions: we’ve got Dave Stewart on cover colors. You know Dave from Hellboy, B.P.R.D., Captain America, Daredevil, Star Wars, and tons of other major titles. We’ve also added Stefano Gaudiano on inks. Stefano did awesome work on Daredevil, Gotham Central, X-O Manowar, and more. We’ve still got Charlie on pencils and Cliff on tones. We’re stoked to have this team working together on The Walking Dead.
