Image Comics' creator-driven formula breathed new life into graphic literature in the '90s as many of the most popular titles for contemporary comic readers find their roots in the publisher. Image broke the mold again with The Walking Dead. Upon its release in 2003, The Walking Dead picked up in popularity, gradually gaining a cult following up until 2010, when it won the Eisner Award for Best Continuing Series alongside the announcement of the TV series that would soon become a runaway success, ensuring boosted sales for years to come. Only 7,200 copies of the original printing of the first issue were ordered by comic book shops across North America and high-grade examples sell for record prices nearly every time one graces the market. There is no other comic from the last 15 years as valuable as this title.

When this comic was posted for sale, only 21 of 2,311 universal copies certified 9.9. That's less than 1 percent.
