Everyone that is a Walking Dead fan knows that issue #100 was a game-changer, the issue ushered in the legendary villain Negan and introduced his weapon, the barbed-wire wrapped baseball bat, Lucille, and let's just say, it was not a happy day in TWD land. This issue is considered a turning point in the storyline of the comic, as it was in the televised version as well. Before the book came out, creator Robert KIrkman warned his fans that it would be the goriest and most shocking issue of the series yet, which led to record breaking pre-sales and the highest amount of variant covers produced for the run, possibly of any comic ever made. Besides issue #1, this is probably the second-most important issue in the series. Which is saying a lot considering how many iconic moments and indelible images have been dumped into the collective pop culture consciousness of fans of this Modern Age classic.

The story behind the "Lucille" Edition of TWD #100 was that it was given out as a retailer incentive copy, sent to dealers who placed large orders of issue #100, only one copy was given to each retailer making this a rare and sought after variant for serious TWD completists. All copies of the "Lucille" variant were intended to be signed by series creator Robert Kirkman, like this example, but a few were released unsigned. So, when you add the Kirkman signature and the extreme rarity of this variant together, and it is also a highest graded copy, you can expect Walking Dead collectors will be salivating over this book like a zombie over some brains.
