Walking Dead 115 Variant“The Walking Dead” is now a major pop culture phenomenon, and the Image Comics series that started it all is celebrating its 10th anniversary in conspicuous fashion: With a 12-issue arc titled “All Out War.”

Starting in October’s “The Walking Dead” #115, the story arc is scheduled to ship biweekly, and features the battling factions of survivors waging, well, an all out war. As the solicitation to issue #115 puts it: “It’s Rick versus Negan with a little help from everyone else!”

Franchise creator Robert Kirkman discussed “All Out War” recently. Ron Richards, Image’s director of business development, started the interview byasking Kirkman what the world looks like as of Walking Dead” #115.

“The ‘All Out War’ storyline is really a culmination of years and years of storytelling,” Kirkman said. “It’s really about these communities that are formed. The world is changing and things are getting a little bigger and more complicated, and more dangerous as a result,” Kirkman says. “I’m finally at a point in ‘The Walking Dead’ where civilization is starting to rebuild.”

“There’s probably going to be some people dying in this storyline,” Kirkman continued.

Richards asked Kirkman how series artist Charlie Adlard is adjusting to the accelerated schedule. “Charlie is fine, it’s really me I want to talk about, I’m very stressed out, this is a lot of work,” the writer answers. To help keep schedule, Kirkman said, Stefano Gaudiano will join the book as an inker, a “Walking Dead” first.

The Walking Dead #115 is scheduled for release on Oct. 9.
