Original Artist of The Walking Dead Tony Moore Returns for #150 Variant Cover.
Variant by Tony Moore
It's indisputable that reaching issue 150 is a huge achievement in comics,” series writer Robert Kirkman said in a press release. “Charlie Adlard and Team Walking Dead have been working tirelessly for over a decade to get us to this milestone and now it's time to celebrate. It's an honor to have comic book pals Jason Latour and Ryan Ottley bringing their vision to these iconic characters. Additionally, words cannot describe how excited I am to have Tony Moore, artist of the first 6 issues, returning to provide a cover for this special event.”
Moore’s variant cover mirrors his cover to The Walking Dead #1, showing how many people Rick has lost and just how much he has changed both physically and emotionally.
Moore drew the first six issues, the first 24 covers, and the first four trade covers for The Walking Dead comic before leaving the series. In 2012, Moore had a legal dispute with Kirkman over The Walking Dead, which was settled on mutually beneficial terms.
