I haven’t seen the sales numbers for Image Comics Walking Dead/Chew, but according to the company, the flipbook issue did amazing well.Â So well in fact, that Image is repeating the flipbook idea with Walking Dead #64, which will feature the entire first issue of Viking #1 by Ivan Brandon and Mic Klein.
â€œThe response to VIKING has been absolutely flooring in every way.Â But the chance to expose the book to the entire massive WALKING DEAD fan base is a whole new level of exciting,â€ said Brandon. â€œEven though VIKING is normally in our full color oversized format, we were surprised by how incredible Nicâ€™s art looked in black and white.Â I think people are really going to love what they see.â€
Kirkman added, â€œIâ€™m personally psyched to have VIKING in the back of WALKING DEAD. As both an Image Partner and a fan, Iâ€™m thrilled by the bookâ€™s success and hope to continue its growth in any way I can.”
The 48-page Walking Dead/Viking issue arrives on stands on August 12, and even with the larger than normal page count, the issue will still be $2.99.
