Publisher to produce official mag after striking deal with Skybound and AMC.
A magazine based on the popular comic-come-TV show The Walking Dead is in production at Titan Magazines.
The publisher has struck a deal with Skybound and AMC to develop The Walking Dead: The Official Magazine, which will arrive quarterly.
The magazine features 100 pages of insider features and news. Fans can go behind the scenes on set with co-executive producer Greg Nicotero, read interviews with the series writers and the stars of the show, such as Andrew Lincoln and Sarah Wayne Callies.
Issue one comes with an alternative cover featuring a zombie scene by The Walking Dead comic artist Charlie Adlard. It arrives in the US on October 23rd and in the UK on November 8th. It will follow in Australia and New Zealand on December 18th.
The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman said: “This magazine will be your one stop destination for all the news pertaining to the comic, TV show, video game, toys, games, and whatever else exists in the ever-expanding Walking Dead universe. If it's happening, you'll find out all about it right here.”
Nick Landau, Titan Publisher, added: “We're very excited to be publishing the quarterly The Walking Dead Magazine with Robert Kirkman and Skybound, which will be a once in a lifetime opportunity for fans to get unlimited access to the show and comic."
The Walking Dead comic debuted in 2003 and the TV show arrived in 2010.
