“I can’t quite believe it’s been 15 years. This is an amazing box set and it’s something that I would be proud to have on my bookshelf…” said Adlard. “Here’s to the next anniversary!”
This deluxe boxset includes THE WALKING DEAD Compendiums 1, 2, and 3—each with exclusive, new covers—collecting the first 144 issues of the New York Timesbestselling survival horror series from Kirkman and Charlie Adlard. It also includes an exclusive, expanded edition of the HERE’S NEGAN trade paperback, which now features the previously uncollected origins of Michonne, Tyrese, the Governor, and Morgan. This box promises to be the most complete collection of THE WALKING DEAD ever assembled and is a cannot-miss experience for the ultimate fan.

    1. Yeah, that’s wrong. 3 normal size comics weigh a pound on average. I can pack 2 comics with couple pieces of cardboard for protection and it usually rounds out to 16 ounces.

    2. I wish my short boxes were 1 lb. That would be awesome. If Kirkman can make that happen, I will read all his books, forever. 2 copies.

      1. I cluld see Kirkman switching his books to be printed on tracing paper to save money, nkt to make his books lighter. 😉

  1. Just out of curiosity, how many different times has Image reprinted the WD #1? I mean in different formats or books. Aside from the original, there’s the $1.00 Image first, the trade paperback, the Omnibus, the Compendium, what else?

    1. According to and including #1 that appear in trades and omnibuses, etc…. #1 has been printed 80 times.

  2. I wonder how many folk will buy it just for the special, “Here’s Negan,” hardcover with the extra previously-uncollected stories? Some completionists will surely want it.

    1. The “Here’s Negan” they said would be found no where else but in Image+ Magazine….. But then was made in special format for 25th anniversary box….. Now in The WD 15th anniversary box…. 🙁

    1. Image promises a lot of things they always tend to break or not follow. I think that’s what pissed a lot of consumers off with the Negan story from the Image+ magazines when they said it would not get reprinted but it was what.. just mere months later they had a reprint of it.
      This is one reason I will not buy into any Image promoted box set.
      One of my local shops are still trying to unload their Oblivion Song box.

      1. I went heavy on “Oblivion Song” boxed set and got most of what I ordered, did pretty good on the first wave at $200 retail .. 2nd wave, a couple months later, it’s Deadsville .. may still be a good long term hold, though ..

        1. Maybe but I’m not counting on it. Unless it becomes a huge TV show…. We can likely compare it to Outcast which did get a show and those books are worthless.

  3. With Diamond not showing any limitation on the number of sets, I don’t think it’s going to have a high level of investment value .. maybe a slight bump initially, but long term, probably not ..

    1. The sad part is, I can only see this set catering to those who have never read the comics. Most if not all the Walking Dead readers already have these in comic form. I wouldn’t spend $200 on these when you can find the past prints of compendiums, trades and special Michonne and Governor comics for dirt cheap at the local Half Price books.
      I dust don’t see anything as being special or collectible if it’s not a limited edition (numbered) with a hard cover, maybe a signature of Kirkman and Adlard, perhaps a quick sketch in the inside, etc.
      $200 gets me two more sky dives.. 🙂

      1. Spot on, Mr Poyo ..
        $200 gets me some good “substance” .. medicinal use only, you understand .. 😉

  4. I’ll just stick to the hardcovers I’ve been collecting. I haven’t gotten the last couple, but I think that they collect either 18 or 12 issues.
