Titan Magazines, who will be publishing the new official magazine for The Walking Dead with Skybound, sent us this sneak peek at the contents of Issue 2 of the magazine. The 100-page issue covers events happening in Season 3 as well as in the comics, with interviews with Robert Kirkman (the mastermind behind The Walking Dead), Greg Nicotero (the show's zombie effects guru) and actors like David Morrissey, who'll be playing The Governor in Season 3. Here's what Titan had to tell us about what's in issue 2, which is available in the US on December 18th:
Following the announcement earlier this month that the hotly anticipated first issue of The Walking Dead, The Official Magazine is already one of Diamond’s best selling magazines of all time, Titan Magazines and Skybound reveal what’s inside the upcoming second issue.
Hitting stores on December 18, this 100-page issue dips another toe in the bloody waters of everything The Walking Dead, from the comic to the series and everything in-between: Creator/writer Robert Kirkman answers readers’ questions and reveals what to look forward to in the coming weeks; The Governor himself, David Morrissey, reveals what it’s like to play the villain; we interview make-up/SFX legend and co-executive producer Greg Nicotero; and, in the comics, we profile Rick’s current nemesis, Negan, and pay our respects to those original survivors who are now worm food. We’ll also have all the latest news, reviews and tips for The Walking Dead fans.
This issue comes with a main newsstand cover featuring David Morrissey as ‘The Governor’ and an alternative art cover by The Walking Dead comic artist Charlie Adlard, colored byThe Walking Dead colorist Cliff Rathburn. Retailers can order this from the November edition of Diamond PREVIEWS.
Retailers can still order copies of the hit issue #1 from Diamond, who have now extended its ordering deadline due the overwhelming response. Any retailers wishing to order this highly demanded issue, or place a reorder, are urged to do so before the issue #1 release date of October 23.
Fans of the show are urged to join The Walking Dead, The Official Magazine on Twitter and Facebook to keep up to date with exclusive developments and deals, or visit the magazine website and www.Skybound.com, the source for all news on The Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman and all Skybound titles.
The Walking Dead, The Official Magazine issue #2 will be available on newsstands and in comic book stores in the US on December 18, in the UK on December 27 and Australia & New Zealand on Feb 2.
Here are the two cover images for Issue 2. These look pretty cool to us – and we can see why fans of the comics and show would want to pick up both for their collections!
