The Walking Dead plans to celebrate 10 years of comic books with special midnight release parties at comic book shops across the United States & Canada. On October 9, 2013, The Walking Dead #115 featuring the All Out War storyline is scheduled to be released, but Image Comics will be kicking off the celebration the night before.
For this special event, The Walking Dead will be available for purchase in advance, at midnight on the night before release, October 9, 2013. The Walking Dead #115 will pit Rick Grimes and his group of Survivors in a fight for their lives against the other factions in The Walking Dead universe: The Saviors, The Hilltop, and The Kingdom.
Comic book retailers will be able to sign up to host a midnight release party for The Walking Dead #115 and in the process get exclusive giveaways and promotional items for the party, as well as the opportunity to order a special variant cover of The Walking Dead #115, with brand new art from Charlie Adlard, available only to participating retailers.
Fans who would like to attend a Walking Dead Midnight Release Party should inquire with their local comic book retailers and ask them to participate.
