AMC Networks have teamed with Image Comics and Skybound Entertainment to release The Art of AMC’s The Walking Dead Universe, a 240-page hardcover art book featuring “never-before-seen original sketches, concept art, storyboards, special product illustrations, and more from the shows inspired by Robert Kirkman’s comic book turned pop-culture phenomenon.”
The book, slated for release on September 29, 2021, will feature images from all three shows and come with a wraparound cover that will feature 50 characters from the television universe. It will also include an introduction from The Walking Dead universe CCO Scott Gimple, and fun facts from cast and crew involved in all three series.
“Our TWD community has been dedicated to the television series for over a decade now, and as a token of our gratitude we wanted to create this book filled with art, design, and information spanning across the three shows we now have,” said Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead. “The expansion of this world is truly because of the awesome fanbase we have, and I am forever thankful to them for supporting our stories.”
“The Walking Dead Universe is supported and surrounded by one of the most passionate fanbases around and we’re thrilled to offer them a new and exciting way to engage with the shows, characters and stories they love,” added Mike Zagari, Head of AMC Networks Publishing. “This impressive collection of art from across all three series will give readers an inside look at the incredible talent and creativity behind the making of their favorite shows.”
The Art of AMC’s The Walking Dead Universe will be available in both print and digitally sold through Book Market and Comics Market. Variant cover editions will be available through Skybound and The Walking Dead Universe Shop.
