Today at Image Expo in San Francisco, Image Comics partner and THE WALKING DEAD creator Robert Kirkman announced his plans for the tenth anniversary of his iconic, game-changing comic book series, taking place in October 2013.

Fans of Tyreese will be happy to see the favorite character get his moment in October as well, with the release of THE WALKING DEAD TYREESE SPECIAL, which reprints his first appearance in THE WALKING DEAD #7 and his origin story that originally appeared in THE WALKING DEAD: FREE COMIC BOOK DAY SPECIAL.
