Your shelves have been buckling for years under the weight of the first two Walking Dead compendiums — compact volumes offering more than 40 issues and 1000 pages of the famed comics series for $60 each. Talk about a license to print money—the first two compendia have been constant bestsellers, with thousands and thousands of copies in print, and creator Robert Kirkman and artists Charlie Adlard and Stefano Gaudiano have earned all those royalties.
And now they are doing it again with The Walking Dead Compendium Volume 3 which goes on sale on October 13—just in time for the new season of the Walking Dead TV show. Fire up the money bin!
This edition will sell for $59.99 and include issues #97-144. That’s Negan, Alexandria and the loss of some much loved characters. It’s primo material and everyone is going to want a copy.
