Image Comics has announced that issue #75 of Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard’s The Walking Dead will be released on July 14th. Kirkman has been promising for awhile that issue 75 will feature a big turning point in the story and will also be the conclusion of the current story arc. Now, Issue 71 has only just been released last week after several months of delays so I’ve actually only barely started this ‘current arc’ so I feel a little rushed even just looking over the promotional information for July’s issue. Issue 75 will be 40 pages long and will also feature a special short story that will be in full color, a first for series.
Also, the first 8 or so episodes of AMC’s The Walking Dead television series will premiere in October during their annual special Halloween programming block. Filming takes place during this May and June.
