Image just sent out a press release for two Sienkiewicz variant covers to celebrate Walking Dead’s 15th Anniversary for issues 175 and 176.
Sienkiewicz has a nice following. We’ve seen his covers heat up. I really do enjoy his style of grunge-like art to portray the characters we all love. Here’s to hoping he continues with a few more issues of the major characters for each issue besides these two. I’m anticipating this will go through the whole story arc in 2018 for New World Order.
From the Press Release:
Image/Skybound Entertainment is pleased to reveal the first two in a series of monthly THE WALKING DEAD variant covers featuring art by Bill Sienkiewicz, to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the long-running series.

This new story arc will introduce all-new friends, new enemies, new threats, and a whole new order.
