In a bit of an unexpected pairing, Rob Zombie has teamed up with Ubisoft and their Assassin’s Creed franchise to help promote the upcoming game in the series, Assassin’s Creed Unity.
Zombie, along with The Walking Dead co-creator Tony Moore, created an animated short motion comic that sets up the French Revolution setting of the game. It’s a well done short, and every bit as brutally violent and bloody as you would expect something made by Zombie to be!
You can check out the video below, as well as a second video of Zombie talking about the project.
Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard walked out to loud applause at the opening of The Walking Dead 10th Anniversary Panel at New York Comic-Con 2013. The panel began with screen shots of the covers for their newest 12-issue story arc titled “All Out War.” Robert Kirkman went on to explain that the first issue in the series – number 115 – came out this past Wednesday. They had 352,000 copies printed and it sold out within the first few days, making it the highest selling single-issue comic so far. The second printing will have four issues.
Adlard, who has been drawing the series since the beginning of its run, did a special cover that included major scenes from the past 10 years. The panelists proceeded to show some artwork from the new issue, the first being a panel in which Rick is leading a small army – gun pointed forward – to fight adversary Negan. Adlard began to talk about the inking process saying, “In the past 20 years, I have never ever not inked myself. Stefano is the new inker – he is proving us right and doing a bang up job. I hope the pencils are living up to the inks.”

Rick Remender‘s redneck space opera Fear Agent has drawn to a close, all that’s left to do now is read the obituary, close the casket, toss the flowers into the grave and call it a day.
Remender (X-Force, Punisher) has been teaming with an array of comic book talents, most notably artist Terry Moore (Walking Dead) since 2007 on this colorful ode to rocketships and ray guns. Heath Huston, formally from Ennis, Texas, is now roaming the galaxies seeking adventure, excitement, and a handle of whiskey…
[Minor spoilers begin] at least on the surface. What he’s actually searching for is a place in the universe. He’s the last of the Fear Agents, a battalion that unsuccessfully fought an alien occupation of Earth that wiped out most of the population, including much of his family. [Minor spoilers end]
Comixology announced on Monday that, in conjunction with Skybound Entertainment, the online comics retailer will be offering a free digital download for The Walking Dead: Days Gone By to WonderCon attendees.
You’re going to be hard pressed these days to find many people attending a comic book convention that haven’t yet read the first collected edition of The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore, but if you are one of the poor souls who haven’t experienced the first chapter of this zombie apocalypse epic that spawned a mega-popular television show, or if you just want the the digital volumes, then this should definitely be on your radar. At this weekend’s WonderCon in Anaheim, CA, free downloads of the first volume of The Walking Dead will be available for the first 5,000 people that visit the Comixology booth (Booth #107).
The Walking Dead Chronicles: The Official Companion Book Paperback
Written by Paul Ruditis
Release date: October 1, 2011
The Walking Dead Chronicles: The Official Companion Book is, as the title would indicate, the official behind-the-scenes book for The Walking Dead. Almost every popular TV or movie (especially those based on comics or sci-fi properties) gets one of these. I’m sure you’ve seen these before. They’re usually filled with interviews, pictures, and inside information about the production of whatever property the book is talking about. This one is no different, and will be a book worth buying if you really like The Walking Dead, but won’t be of much interest to non-fans.
