It’s a good time to be Robert Kirkman. With The Walking Dead as the hottest show on cable television and AMC set to adapt his Thief of Thieves comic book for television, Kirkman is the most in demand comic book writer around. What’s especially great about Kirkman’s success is that it’s bringing new readers into comic book stores, as they seek out the original print version of their favorite show.
We tend to have a lot of Comicbook.com readers who follow The Walking Dead TV show pretty closely, so last month we brought you a sneak preview of issue #95 of The Walking Dead comic book. This month, Image Comics has sent us a six page preview of The Walking Dead #96.
The Walking Dead #96 is the fourth part of the “A Larger World” storyline. The Walking Dead is written by Robert Kirkman with art by Charlie Adlard and Cliff Rathburn. Here is Image Comics description of the issue, “Will Rick’s community join the network? Will they enter into an era of unprecedented peace and prosperity – or has Rick ruined that for everyone? Has he now made more, deadlier enemies for them to deal with?”
The Walking Dead #96 is scheduled to arrive in comic book stores on Wednesday, April 18, 2012.
