The Walking Dead #1: Press Release: "TULSA, Okla., October 8, 2015 -- Wizard World, Inc. (OTCBB: WIZD) and Skybound, Robert Kirkman's imprint at Image Comics, today announced that illustrator and musician Billy Martin has drawn the 20th in a yearlong series of Limited Edition Exclusive Variant Covers of The Walking Dead #1 comic, to be provided free to all full-price attendees at Wizard World Comic Con Tulsa, October 23-25. Skybound’s The Walking Dead created by Kirkman, the groundbreaking, Eisner-Award-winning comic book series, continues to captivate audiences worldwide.

The exclusive The Walking Dead #1 edition will be produced in extremely limited quantities and is available at registration to fans at the Cox Business Center only while supplies last. VIP attendees will receive an additional black & white sketch version of the comic.

Best known as the lead guitarist and keyboard player for the multi-platinum selling band Good Charlotte, Martin has been splitting his passion for music and art professionally for more than a decade. His art can be seen in Good Charlotte’s album art, stage design and merchandise.

Martin ran his own clothing line, Level 27, for ten years featuring his goth/horror themed art before he decided to close the line to further his art in the illustration world. Martin has worked for Disney, Upper Deck/Marvel Trading Cards, IDW Publishing, Image Comics, BOOM! Ent. and SLG Comics.

The artists for future books will be announced as they are selected. A similar series in 2013 featuring exclusives of The Walking Dead #1 proved to be wildly popular with fans. The full schedule of 2015-16 Wizard World shows is available at http://www.wizardworld.com/wizcon.html."


Bone Tomahawk: "When a group of cannibal savages kidnaps settlers from the small town of Bright Hope, an unlikely team of gunslingers, led by Sheriff Franklin Hunt (Kurt Russell), sets out to bring them home. But their enemy is more ruthless than anyone could have imagined, putting their mission – and survival itself – in serious jeopardy. Kurt Russell (The Hateful Eight, Tombstone) leads an all-star cast, including Patrick Wilson (Insidious), Matthew Fox (“Lost”) and Richard Jenkins (The Cabin in the Woods, Six Feet Under) in this gritty, action-packed thriller chronicling a terrifying rescue mission in the Old West."

Written and directed by S. Craig Zahler, Bone Tomahawk stars Kurt Russell, Patrick Wilson, Matthew Fox, Richard Jenkins, Lili Simmons, David Arquette, and Sid Haig. The cannibal Western hits VOD and iTunes on October 23rd from RLJ Entertainment.
