Cryptozoic Entertainment is currently working on a set of trading cards based on The Walking Dead comic book series and just shared some of the sketch cards that will be included:
“Cryptozoic Entertainment™ is very excited to be producing a trading card set based on Robert Kirkman’s best-selling comic books, The Walking Dead. Inspiration for the hit AMC television series, The Walking Dead comics describe the lives and events of a group of survivors after a zombie apocalypse decimates civilization. Our upcoming set of The Walking Dead Comic Book Trading Cards includes 90 base cards, featuring 10 of the characters from the books. Chase sets will include Mini-Books, which highlight 9 of the monthly covers and will open up to reveal a black and white interior scene, and Killed In Action, a tribute to those who have fallen to the scourge of walkers.
Fans can also look forward to some of the best comic-based sketch cards on the market today, featuring artists such as Cal Slayton, George Davis, Rémi Dousset, and Rich Molinelli. Here is a glimpse of what’s to come!”
