We’ve already let readers know that those who attend The Walking Dead Escape: San Diego as a survivor or walker would receive a limited edition copy of The Walking Dead #100. Now, you can take a look at the new cover artwork from Matthew Roberts. Here is what Robert Kirkman had to say about working with Roberts for the new cover:
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Matt Roberts since the very earliest days of my career… I couldn’t be more thrilled that he’s coming back to comics to work with Skybound and I can’t think of a better way of reintroducing him to the world of comics than with this cover, commemorating The Walking Dead Escape and our monumental issue 100.”
While the article from EW mentioned that the issue will be given freely to those that participate in The Walking Dead Escape, we’ve been told previously that the comic will only be given to walkers and survivors. Those who purchase spectator tickets will receive a poster with this artwork instead. Here is more information on the event:
“There are three ways to participate in this epic adventure. Participants can be a Survivor and race through the zombie infested evacuation zone; a Walker who becomes one of the undead, embracing the inevitable; or a Spectator who watches the apocalypse from sidelines at the Escape Party. Greg Nicotero and his team at KNB EFX will transform those who sign up to be Walkers into the most terrifying zombies to grace San Diego.
Skybound.com’s The Walking Dead Escape: San Diego is unlike any obstacle course event in the U.S., expanding on the best-selling The Walking Dead comic book series and graphic novel storylines, allowing Survivors and Walkers to explore the initial days of the apocalypse.
Survivors will climb, crawl and slide in an effort to avoid confrontation by hordes of Walkers, while achieving the ultimate adventure on The Walking Dead-themed obstacle course. The Walking Dead Escape is not a race, and Survivors are not timed, but the end is near, and they must move swiftly. If they’re lucky, Survivors will reach the decontamination zone at the end where it will be determined if they have been infected.”
