**Updated** High Resolution Cover Art for The Walking Dead Issue #100

**Updated with a high resolution version of the cover artwork.** The release of The Walking Dead #100 is still a few months away, but the wraparound cover art has been unveiled. USA Today gave us our first look at the cover and talked to Robert Kirkman about the upcoming issue:

**Spoiler Alert!!: The text and image is a spoiler for those that haven’t caught up on the comic book series. It may also reveal spoilers that would appear in future episodes of The Walking Dead TV series.**

“So Kirkman wanted the 100th cover to be worthy enough for a landmark not many indie comics obtain. The image, by series artist Charlie Adlard, features a pile of corpses, including every prominent character who’s died in the series, from the evil Governor to Lori, wife of cop Rick Grimes.

Issue 100 falls right in the “dead center” of what he calls the “craziest” story arc so far in the comic series, a bloody affair that finds Rick and his group of survivors thriving in a (seemingly) safe community, much like they did at the prison — a place of refuge that was hinted at during the second season finale of the Walking Dead TV series.”

This month sees the conclusion of the latest story arc, titled “A Larger World”, in issue #96. The new story arc Kirkman is referring to is called “Something to Fear”. We’ve included the issue #100 cover art below and you can look at previously released “Something to Fear” teasers at: http://dailydead.com/the-walking-dead-is-daryl-dixon-joining-the-comic-book-series/

**Updated with new high resolution cover artwork. It has also been revealed that the following artists will be working on alternate covers: Frank Quitely, Todd McFarlane, Marc Silvestri, Bryan Hitch, Sean Phillips and Ryan Ottley
