Earlier this year, Wizard World announced that they would be releasing variant covers for The Walking Dead #1 at all of their Comic Cons in 2013. The first variant cover was illustrated by artist Michael Golden and was released at Wizard World Portland Comic Con last weekend.
Wizard World has just announced that the artist for the second variant cover will be Arthur Suydam, who is known for his work in the zombie genre. Suydam’s The Walking Dead #1 variant cover edition will be provided for free to all full-price attendees at Wizard World St. Louis Comic Con, March 22-24 at America’s Center, while supplies last.
