The Power of Cover Art – The Walking Dead #53 cover!!!

*Deep breath*……came across this today – – and amongst all the other Image solicitations for July 2008, we now know the cover art (very new, doesn’t even have the lettering on it) for Walking Dead #53 – are you ready???? It is a beauty, and asks a lot more questions than it answers – which is great!


Written by Robert Kirkman, art and cover by Charlie Adlard and Cliff Rathburn.

To the rescue.

32 pages, black and white, $2.99, in stores on July 16.

So – speculation……..are they the new major characters? Are they meeting up with Rick? Are they Military? Are we about to see the beginning of the fightback against the undead???? Does it suggest well organised, fully resourced communities out there beyond the devastated Prison compound? Maybe (and this is probably unlikely) they are Woodbury folk. If they are Woodbury folk, things could go one of two ways, and one way could be very bad for Rick….

Once again, the best comicbook series ANYWHERE teases and tantalises and promises – and I doubt doubt that Kirkman & co will deliver…….
