WALKING DEAD Issue #1 Splash Page
VF: 8.0
It begins here! Rick Grimes, the protagonist of the now widely popular Walking Dead franchise wakes up in his hospital bed, unaware of the new and dangerous world of which he is now a part. The series is not about the undead, but rather the living and their struggle for survival. Over ten years after this issue debuted, the indie comic following Grimes and his horrific story has proved to be a pop-culture juggernaut. Just recently releasing its 173rd issue, and inspiring a television show that continues its eighth season this fall, The Walking Dead is shambling through unparalleled success and fandom.

For those who are looking to obtain that perfect Walking Dead page from the original artist, Tony Moore, this beautifully rendered piece is sure to please. Moore only penciled the first six issues, and pages from these early books were snapped up and are rarely offered for sale. Rumor has it, Moore is no longer selling his personal Walking Dead pieces which has sparked a collector's frenzy to snag a page before they're all tucked away in private collections. On display at New York ComicCon and at Metropolis Gallery, this piece has drawn tongue-wagging fans by the thousands and will become a cornerstone for a determined Walking Dead original art collector.

There is a coffee stain on the back of the page which does not bleed through or effect the actual artwork.
