Huh, well, this is innovative. It seems Katchoo will turn into a zombie and Francine will have to hunt her down.

No, that isn’t it.

WALKING DEAD #95 will feature a preview of RACHEL RISING, Terry Moore’s new series, published by his own Abstract Studios. It’s a horror series about a woman who cannot die, so it definitely fits the TWD demo. And kudos to Robert Kirkman for giving more space to another creator-owned book by a top-notch creator.

See, when you own your own thing, you can be agile, and have no corporations to tell you no!

THE WALKING DEAD #95, in stores on March 28, will have a five-page preview of Terry Moore’s horror comic Rachel Rising, published by Moore’s own Abstract Studio. The trade paperback collecting the first six issues of the ongoing series by the Strangers in Paradise creator, Rachel Rising: The Shadow of Death, will be in comic book stores the same day.

Rachel Rising tells the story of a young woman who cannot die. She wakes up at the foot of her own shallow grave, looking at her own freshly-murdered corpse. The events of her last night are hazy, and Rachel must piece together the events that led to her death — so that she can take revenge on the right person. Comic Book Resources described Rachel Rising as being “chock full of decadent mystery, unspeakable horror, strong characters, and beautiful black and white artwork, and it’s on its way to becoming the best of Terry Moore’s already impressive work.”

THE WALKING DEAD creator Robert Kirkman decided to include the preview in the latest issue of the Image Comics bestseller to support Moore’s work.

“Terry is a personal hero of mine dating back to my self-publishing days,” he writes in his introduction to the preview. “I’ve always been a fan of his work and an admirer of everything he’s been able to accomplish independently.”

THE WALKING DEAD #95 by Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard, and Cliff Rathburn continues the series’ “A Larger World” storyline. Rachel Rising: The Shadow of Death (ISBN 978-1-89259-751-9) is a 120-page black-and-white trade paperback.


  1. way to go, robert! Rachel Rising is an amazing book and deserves to sell way better than it does! very classy of you and Image!

  2. Forget Kirkman…props to Terry Moore for continuing to be one of the best in the business! Rachel Rising is just amazing.

  3. Interesting that it’s not even another Image Comics series, but from a completely different publisher. Reminds me a bit of what Dave Sim used to do at the back of Cerebus.
