Skybound on Monday unveiled Walking Dead merchandise commemorating Rick Grimes, who was killed off in the penultimate issue of creator Robert Kirkman’s comic book in June. The merchandise will be available exclusively at San Diego Comic-Con.
A commemorative shirt features Rick’s silhouette, in the shape of a statue remembering the fallen Alexandria leader, surrounded by the speech an older Carl Grimes reads to daughter Andrea at the end of the book’s final issue. The shirt is priced at $25.
Signed prints of issue 192, autographed by Kirkman and artist Charlie Adlard, will be available for purchase at the price of $192. The limited, numbered edition of just 192 copies features an exclusive label featuring a tribute image of Rick, borrowed from the memorial cover that adorned the issue when it was re-released for a second printing.
Both the shirt and the autographed issue #192 will be available only at Skybound’s booth.
Also available during Comic-Con is a Rick’s sheriff badge pin, which contains the words “Rest in Peace” and “2003-2019,” the years The Walking Dead was published. The enamel pin will cost $10.
Represented on the decks are the covers of issue #48, featuring Rick, issue #19 (J. Scott Campbell 15th anniversary blind bag variant), featuring Michonne, and the three-piece issues #97-99 that comprised the first three parts of “Something to Fear,” featuring Negan and Lucille. The fourth is a stickers variant featuring custom graphics from across the series’ history.
In addition, Skybound announced a Jason Edmiston Eye Print Set, each carried in one-of-a-kind hand-embellished envelopes. Part of the “Eyes Without a Face” series, the limited edition of 193 pieces will offer signed and numbered sets.0comments
