I haven’t seen the sales numbers for Image Comics Walking Dead/Chew, but according to the company, the flipbook issue did amazing well.  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.

“The response to VIKING has been absolutely flooring in every way.  But the chance to expose the book to the entire massive WALKING DEAD fan base is a whole new level of exciting,” said Brandon. “Even though VIKING is normally in our full color oversized format, we were surprised by how incredible Nic’s art looked in black and white.  I think people are really going to love what they see.”

Kirkman added, “I’m personally psyched to have VIKING in the back of WALKING DEAD. As both an Image Partner and a fan, I’m thrilled by the book’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.
