Comic World celebrates Walking Dead Day
HUNTINGTON — It has been fifteen years since “The Walking Dead” comic book series first introduced fans to sheriff Rick Grimes and their fan favored survivors of the zombie apocalypse on Oct. 8, 2003.
Comic World is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Joining Comic World in celebrating Walking Dead Day Saturday, Oct. 13, will be David McGee, of The Rolling Dead. Along for the ride is his 1965 Triumph motorcycle, a replica of Daryl Dixon’s Zombie Killer Chopper, featured on the first four seasons of the Walking Dead TV show. The Zombie Killer Chopper replica will be on display, at Comic World along with a tank autographed by every major character from the first four seasons of the show from 1 to 6 p.m.
David’s Chopper has been featured at numerous comic conventions across the country, and this is a chance to see it up close along with a free photo opportunity. In honor of “The Walking Dead” 15 year anniversary, a new variant cover for “The Walking Dead” issue number 1 will be released. The cover features new artwork from Charlie Adlard.
