To get as many people as possible to read The Walking Dead, it's offered in a variety of formats and everyone has a preference. If you don't like reading each issue individually and have been waiting for the next hardcover release, The Walking Dead Book 9 is expected to be available in September and we have an early look at the cover art.

"In this volume of the New York Times bestselling survival horror, Rick and his band of survivors work to build a larger network of thriving communities. But Negan and his Saviours prove to be a larger threat than they could have imagined. Crossing them will lead to The Walking Dead's most harrowing story since the Governor's reign of terror. Collects issues #97 to 108, written by Robert Kirkman, with artwork and a cover by Charlie Adlard and Cliff Rathburn."

Currently, a number of online retailers are listing the release date as Wednesday, September 4th. However, there are changes occasionally to the various volume releases, so check back closer to September for confirmation. We'll be at the San Diego Comic-Con next week to bring you all of the latest news on The Walking Dead. Until then, catch up on our featured coverage by visiting the following links:
