Collect Your Favorite Decomposing Corpses with Topps’ New Walking Dead Cards

twd card trader

People love The Walking Dead. Despite some rage-inducing story decisions made at the end of this last season (and numerous times throughout the show's run depending on who you're asking), the show is still one of the biggest hits not on premium cable. It's so successful it even necessitated the creation of a spin-off series, Fear the Walking Dead, which showcases the zombie apocalypse from an all-new perspective of characters not seen in the comic series before. And there's the post-show talk show too, but the merits of its existence is a whole different discussion nobody wants to have.

While there has certainly been no shortage of merchandise for the television show, including trading cards, Topps has seen fit to add the popular series to its stable of licensed products. Things kicked off today with the launch of a new, free digital card app, The Walking Dead Card Trader, with physical cards planned to follow later in 2016. What kind of cards are we talking about here? Walkers. Lots and lots of walkers.

bce511

The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, “Which comic books should I be reading?” or, “I’m new to comics, what’s a good place to start?” The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats.

It’s with these challenges in mind that we’ve created Best Comic Books Ever (This Week), an ongoing guide curated by the ComicsAlliance staff. This is where new comics readers and seasoned Wednesday shoppers alike can find our picks of the best books the medium has to offer.

If You Loved ‘Captain America: Civil War’, Read These Comics Next

Civil-War-Featured

Captain America: Civil War is in cinemas now, and everyone’s raving about its impressive set-pieces, complex themes and snappy banter. Marvel Studios and the Russo Brothers not only managed to make possibly the best Captain America film (and the best Avengers film) so far, but they told an awesome, tightly-plotted story that never felt bloated despite the number of characters demanding the spotlight.

The Captain America franchise has always skewed somewhat more toward espionage thrillers than your average superhero series, similar in tone to the Jason Bourne series or the modern day James Bond films. If you loved Civil War and want to try some comics in a similar vein --- but you’ve already read Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting’s Captain America run --- we’ve compiled a list of five of the best independent comics to try next.

‘Walking Dead’ Creator Talks AMC Series Catching Up to Comics

Walking Dead Robert Kirkman Show Comics 154
AMC

The Walking Dead has borrowed somewhat more liberally from its source material than adaptations like Game of Thrones, though there always remains a possibility of the AMC drama catching up to, even overtaking writer and creator Robert Kirkman’s work. The live-action Walking Dead has covered roughly 2/3 of the comics over six seasons, so is Kirkman worried about it catching up?

If You Love ‘Star Wars’, Try These Comics Next

Star-Wars-Featured

Star Wars is more popular than ever after the release of last years' seventh installment The Force Awakens rekindled everyone's love for stories set a long time ago in a galaxy far away, and the trailer for this year's Rogue One has that excitement rolling right along.

Comics and sci-fi have a long history together going way back to serialised comic strips of the '30s such as Flash Gordon, and they've only grown in size and scope since then. Star Wars itself has experienced a comics renaissance at Marvel Comics thanks to the likes of Jason Aaron, John Cassaday, Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larroca, but once you've caught up on those, we've assembled a list of some of the best contemporary independent sci-fi comics on the stands.

Joshua Williamson And Mike Henderson On The Secrets And Serial Killers Of ‘Nailbiter’ [Interview]

nailbiter-feat

Sixteen of America's most notorious serial killers all came from the small town of Buckaroo, Oregon, and a conspiracy suggests there's a link between them. The most recent "Buckaroo Butcher" was Edward Charles Warren, nicknamed "Nailbiter" for his penchant for chewing his victims' fingers down to the bone --- but after being found not guilty, he resides peacefully in Buckaroo, until an investigation into the conspiracy begins, and a new Butcher makes their presence known.

That's the pitch for Joshua Williamson and Mike Henderson's Nailbiter from Image Comics, which along with books like Wytches and Harrow Country, is spearheading a revival for horror comics on the whole. The series returns this week for a new arc beginning in Nailbiter #21 and we caught up with the creative team to discuss the mental toll of living with a town of serial killers in your head, and the evolution of their collaborative process.
