Walking dead 50 cover by RyanOttley Walking dead 50 cover by RyanOttley
Pencils-Erik Larsen

Inks- ME

So Robert Kirkman called me up one day and asked if I wanted to do a crazy variant cover for the Walking dead issue 50 that shows all the Walking dead characters as super-heroes. Ya know because tons of Marvel books were doing variant zombie covers for super-heroes for no reason, so Robert thought he'd do a variant super-hero cover for his zombie book. I liked the idea but I told him no, it's just too much work for a jokey type cover and I just don't have the time to design characters and do a gatefold cover. So he then asked me if I'd ink it if he got Erik Larsen to draw it. I said HELL YES! He calls up Erik Larsen and asks him, Erik says it's just too much work for a jokey type of cover. heh. So Robert offered to design the characters and do a layout. And we went to work on it. I was pretty exited about all this. I love Larsen's layout's and energetic big fisted action. I geeked out on this big time and had a lot of fun inking it. Hope ya like.

It's weird to see them as superheros, but it's still pretty neat. ...Is that a lightsaber that Michonne is using as her weapon?
