The Walking Dead Goes Gay…

Comics can often be accused of lots of things, senseless violence, unrealistic body type expectations, even brainwashing children into committing murder! Really… Just ‘Google” Fredric Wertham’s 1954 publication ‘Seduction Of The Innocent.
However, one thing they can’t be accused of is being prejudice…. Not ‘Image’ comics anyway, as this year they celebrate Gay Pride with these exclusive ‘Gay’ Themed’ run of variant comics from eleven of their most popular titles including The Walking Dead!


Image say:
“It’s never been a secret that Image Comics is supportive of creative freedom, but it’s important that we also make it clear that we stand for inclusivity, diversity and equality, now more than ever,” Image Comics publisher Eric Stephenson said in a statement. “We hope these variants will serve as a positive display of that ongoing commitment.”


The cover varients set to be released are:

The Walking Dead #168 — Available June 7
The Divided States of Hysteria #1 — Available June 7
Bitch Planet: Triple Feature #1 — Available June 14
