BERKELEY, CA (September 26th, 2007) – With both titles on the verge of reaching their fiftieth issues the heat behind THE WALKING DEAD and INVINCIBLE has never been hotter as proven by a simultaneous distribution-level sell out.
“People seem to be real psyched for our big milestone,” said series writer Robert Kirkman. “Having THE WALKING DEAD #42 and INVINCIBLE #45 sell out has gotten the entire creative team very fired up. Ryan Ottley’s and Charlie Adlard’s pages get better and better the closer we get to fifty.”
THW WALKING DEAD #42 sets the stage for the upcoming “No One Is Safe” storyline, while INVINCIBLE #45 plants the seeds for its series-altering trilogy. Copies of both issues may still be available at your local retailer for a limited time.
Image Comics Publisher Erik Larsen said, “Ryan, Charlie and Robert personify what Image is all about. Having a creator-owned superhero book and a black and white horror series reach these numbers was unthinkable years ago, but these guys made it happen. I can’t wait to read the next fifty!”
