With the success of The Walking Dead both in comics and on TV, the series is also expanding into some rather interesting licensed products. Peavey Electronics announced today that they will be making musical instruments featuring graphics from The Walking Dead comic books.
The new musical instruments will feature The Walking Dead artist Charlie Adlard's highly detailed artwork on guitars and accessories. “We are very pleased to be working with Robert Kirkman and Skybound,” said Hartley Peavey, founder and CEO of Peavey Electronics. “The immense popularity of The Walking Dead comic book series and bestselling graphic novels will allow us to get our products in the hands of an entirely new market and will expand our range of designs.”
Shawn Kirkham, Director of Business Development at Skybound Entertainment, added, “The merging of The Walking Dead’s iconic art and the equally iconic Peavey brand is a no-brainer. I’m excited to see fans and musicians strapping on guitars featuring gruesome Walking Dead artwork from Charlie Adlard. These guitars, straps and picks are going to look brutal!”
Peavey’s The Walking Dead musical instruments and accessories will be available in 2013 at specialty and major national retailers. Find out more at www.Peavey.com.
