Retailers can still place orders of issue #1 from Diamond. Don’t miss out on this hotly anticipated launch."
The magazine's initial announcement last June prompted a huge national media buzz, and Titan is planning a massive marketing campaign to support the magazine launch with print, online, social-networking and PR activity.
“Titan is putting a huge amount of effort into making this magazine as cool as it can possibly be, so I have to give a huge hats off to them for that,” said The Walking Dead creator/writer, Robert Kirkman, also Executive Producer and writer on the series based upon his groundbreaking comic. “I’ve been fortunate enough to partner with fantastic people who really make the greatest products in their field and I’m happy to count Titan among them.”
