Fans attending Image Expo 2018 in Portland, Oregon will have an opportunity to see The Walking Dead from the unique perspective of creator Robert Kirkman.

This is a big time for The Walking Dead comic book series. The book is entering its 10th year of publication and fans should be excited to learn more about the new story arc involving the New World Order. Plus, our favorite characters should be in dangerous situations very soon with so many threats in the zombie apocalypse.

If you can get to the Portland, Oregon area near Leftbank Annex on Wednesday, February 21, 2018 from 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM PST, you could have an opportunity to see The Walking Dead and other popular comic books from Image from the perspective of the creators and artists.

The event is Image Expo 2018 and it has already been announced that Robert Kirkman will be in attendance along with many other artists, creators, and developers and tickets can be purchased on the Eventbrite website.

For those unfamiliar with Image Expo thinking it is just another convention for comic book fans, this might not be what you expect. While there is some casual appeal for fans, this might be something a little more serious and in-depth comic readers will appreciate.

"“IMAGE EXPO is an all-day event for fans, the retailer community, and the press to experience a showcase of exciting Image Comics announcements. IMAGE EXPO 2018 will feature a line-up of some of the hottest names in comics and offers a unique experience for fans to have unprecedented access to the writers and artists behind their favorite comic books at exclusive autograph sessions and comic-focused programming. The event is open to all fans, comics retailers, librarians, and media.”"

While Kirkman’s attendance could be the highlight for many fans, it is the announcement of a new project from Rick Remender that should have people lined up. Remender has made some excellent franchises in recent history, including Deadly ClassBlack Science, and Seven to Eternity, with Deadly Class being picked up by SyFy for a possible show coming soon.

General admission for the event is $25 with premium tickets available for $100 which include a tote bag, boxed lunch, 3 variant comics, pint glass, pin, and priority seating at panels and events at the Expo.
