Forget Marvel and DC. Image comics has the heavy weight champ of comics…this century! The Walking Dead issue #100 is breaking records all over the place. Read the official word below.
In only 1 day, over 375,000 units were sold, making it the most since 1997’s The Darkness #11. The initial order of 383,612 was completely sold out, a feat which harkens back to the glory days of the comic book industry.
“The Walking Dead continues to greatly exceed all my expectations in all forms,” said Robert Kirkman. “I am especially excited for what this means for comics as an industry, that this is an independent comic hitting that number.” Kirkman continued, “The future of comics couldn’t be brighter as more and more readers are embracing new ideas in a big way.”
The only real problem I have with The Walking Dead is waiting for the next issue to come out! Congrats to Kirkman and crew and here’s hoping issue #200 is even bigger!
