Tony Moore is returning to The Walking Dead with a variant cover for its upcoming #150, reports IGN. Moore co-created the series with writer Robert Kirkman, but stopped drawing the book after six issues. Charlie Adlard was then hired to illustrate the book, which he continues to do to this day. Jason Latour and Ryan Ottley will also be doing variant covers for The Walking Dead #150.
“It's indisputable that reaching issue 150 is a huge achievement in comics," said Kirkman. “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.”
In 2012, Moore filed a lawsuit against Kirkman over unpaid profits from the successful comic book series turned television franchise. The lawsuit was settled out of court, and this 2016 cover will be the first time the duo has worked together in over a decade.
The Walking Dead #150 is scheduled for release January 13, 2016.
