Daryl Dixon, the popular crossbow wielding character on The Walking Dead TV show, has taken aim at his first comic book cover appearance.
AMC, Skybound Entertainment, and Image Comics have previewed the limited edition cover for The Art of AMC’s The Walking Dead by artists David Finch and Dave McCaig. The rare cover shows the likeness of actor Norman Reedus as Daryl with half his face in human form and half zombified.
“This is the first time that Daryl Dixon has been brought to life in comic book form by Skybound and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have David Finch & Dave McCaig do the honors with their incomparable style,” Skybound SVP, Editor-in-Chief Sean Mackiewicz said. “The Art of AMC’s The Walking Dead Universe is an essential must-read for any fan of the hit AMC series and we’re thrilled to offer this limited edition version right now for fans who want to own a special piece of TWD history.”
The book provides an in-depth look at the preproduction and production art from AMC’s The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, and The World Beyond. It will contain never before seen sketches, concept art, storyboards, special product illustrations, and more. It will come with an introduction by the TV series’ Chief Content Officer Scott M. Gimple, and feature fun facts from creators and crew members.
The Art of AMC’s The Walking Dead will be in comic book stores on September 29, 2021, and bookstores on October 5. The Finch variant cover is only available in the Skybound Store while supplies last.
