Official Press Release

BERKELEY, CA -- 12 February, 2007 -- For the second straight issue in

a row, THE WALKING DEAD has sold out. Image Comics is happy to

announce that they will be going back to press to satisfy the

incredible demand for THE WALKING DEAD #34. Last month's disturbing

confrontation between Michonne and the Governor was the most

controversial issue of THE WALKING DEAD yet, and the buzz was so huge

that it's carrying over. Month after month, more and more fans are

getting hooked on THE WALKING DEAD.

"Last month's issue kicked everything up a notch -- everyone wants to

find out what's going to happen next," says Image Comics Executive

Director Eric Stephenson. "It also didn't hurt that the Governor was

named Wizard's Villain of the Year for 2006. THE WALKING DEAD is

consistently one of our best selling titles, but clearly, we're still

picking up readers."

"With THE WALKING DEAD selling out from Image almost every issue,

it's obvious this is a series that is constantly finding new

readers," says Flying Colors store owner Joe Field. "We fortunately

have some left in stock -- and we're always happy to stock

aggressively and be able to turn new readers on to this most undead

of titles!"

If you were blown away by #33 and pounced on #34 as soon as it hit

the the stands, you are not going to believe what's coming next in


THE WALKING DEAD #34 will be back in stores in early March. Issue #35

is on sale February 28th.
