Everyone knows the immense success which is The Walking Dead series, but some people don’t know much about the comics that the series is based in. The Walking Dead is commonly cited as the precursor to the popularization of the genre in comics. The story focuses on a group of survivors led by a former police officer named Rick Grimes. In 2007, Robert Kirkman revealed that the timeline of the series had the outbreak started in October 2003 and that there is no defined end to the series despite the end of the comics.
The idea of creating this story, came when Kirkman and Moore decided to do a follow-up to George A. Romero’s “Night of the Living Dead”, a film released in the 60s. Image Comics co-founder Jim Valentino suggested using an original concept, so the creators did a literature review and created The Walking Dead.
The Walking Dead debuted in 2003, published by Image Comics, with art by Tony Moore in the first six editions and Cliff Rathburn shading the art after edition five. Charlie Adlard took over as an artist in edition 7. Moore also made the cover art for the first twenty-four editions and the first four commercial books.
