The Walking Dead is one of those shows that people obsess about. At San Diego Comic-Con there were many cosplayers dressed as characters from the show. But what is the latest in must-have Walking Dead merchandise? Why not pre-order the pop-up book or get yourself a case of Walking Dead beer?
The Walking Dead: The Pop-Up Book is by Stephani Danelle Perry (Author), Becca Zerkin (Creator), David Hawcock (Creator), Sally Elizabeth Jackson (Illustrator), and published by Insight Editions. It is scheduled for release on October 27, 2015 and can be pre-ordered on Amazon here. The synopsis is below:
“This spectacular pop-up book from paper engineers David Hawcock and Becca Zerkin forms the perfect guide to the world of AMC’s The Walking Dead. Filled with eye-catchingly gory pops, the book takes the reader through some of the most iconic moments from the hugely popular series. The book features five spreads, each with its own central pop that depicts a key element from the show, such as the prison where the survivors found refuge before being attacked by the Governor or the Walker known as “Bicycle Girl” reaching out at the reader. Each spread also includes several smaller pops depicting other memorable elements from The Walking Dead, such as the Governor’s “man cave” (including his unique aquarium complete with severed heads), the Well Walker, and much, much more.”
