It's always a treat to revisit the seminal start of Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead comic book series, and soon Image Comics will give fans a new way to look at the first issue with the upcoming release of The Walking Dead #1 Artist's Proof Edition.

Our friends at report that The Walking Dead #1 Artist's Proof Edition will be available to purchase for $19.99 beginning August 26th. Featuring the over-sized art board dimensions of 11" x 17" (even bigger than the Artist's Proof Edition of All Out War), this new edition of Kirkman's classic first issue of The Walking Dead showcases Tony Moore's art without gray tones.
