San Diego Comic Con happens this week and we will be providing as much news here as we can over the days. SDCC starts Thursday July 18th-Sunday, July 21st.
Robert Kirkman announced unexpectedly that The Walking Dead comic book would end after issue #193. Despite having solicited two subsequent issues in August and September, issues #194 & 195, the book will end at #193. This surprising news has caused collectors to start looking for their own copy and forced Image Comics to begin a second printing. From the website Newsarama, “I’ll say it again, I love (loved… oh, god, I’m not ready for past tense) writing this series. I really don’t want it to end. In fact, I’ve been… kind of unsettled since I wrote the script for this issue. The whole thing just feels… weird,” wrote Kirkman in a letter published with The Walking Dead #193. “In a way, killing this series has been a lot like killing a major character. Much, much harder… but the same feeling. I don’t want to do it. I’d rather keep going… but the story is telling me what it wants and what it needs. This needs to happen. Whether I want it or not.”
