The Walking Dead artwork

AMC will also be releasing artwork each of the 11 weeks that will focus on each season of the series. So far, there have been 3  of the artwork pieces released. Fans can purchase the artwork at the TWDU shop.

The first artist, Alex Maleev, displayed artwork from season 1 with a comic book cover feel. It features Rick Grimes, Sherrif bag of guns on his shoulder, while he rides his horse into Atlanta. In the foreground, a crow picks at a decomposing corpse. It is a magnificent tribute to Rick Grimes and season one of The Walking Dead. You can view it here.

The season 2 piece of artwork comes from artist Will Sliney and colorist Dee Cunniffe. The piece shows three iconic season 2 scenes; walker Shane approaching Rick, the outstretched arms of the Well Walker and a smiling Glenn and Maggie on horseback as they ride to get supplies. You can view the season 2 piece here.

You can do a feature for the third season without including The Governor. Artist Kirk A. Etienne captures the prison, The Governor and his severed heads, as well as a horde of walkers to capture the essence of that season. You can view Etienne’s piece here. 

I will continue to add the pieces to this article as they are revealed.
