UK Comics Laureate and The Walking Dead artist, Charlie Adlard, to publish never before seen illustrations with BHP Comics
Charlie Adlard, former UK Comics Laureate and long-term artist of the smash comic series The Walking Dead, will publish a collection of his illustrations with indie publisher BHP Comics in the summer of 2020, with pre-orders opening via Kickstarter in November. Charlie Adlard: Drawings + Sketches will be edited by Tim Pilcher, and give readers and fans a peek behind the curtain of his creations.
With two decades of comic art behind Charlie Adlard, Drawings + Sketches selects work from The Walking Dead, Vampire State Building, Wendigo and much more, offering insights into the stories and processes behind his work. This will include over 100 pages of rare and never before seen drawings.
Adlard has also worked on comics including 2000 AD, Mars Attacks, The X-Files, Judge Dredd and X-Men, while The Walking Dead comics, which have recently come to an end, spawned two global smash series on AMC. His tenure as UK Comics Laureate ended earlier in 2019, taken over by Hannah Berry.
Charlie Adlard, Drawings + Sketches is the latest in the series from BHP which launched with successful pocketbook Frank Quitely, Drawings + Sketches, collecting the Scottish creator’s work across his career. Fans will be able to order Charlie Adlard, Drawings + Sketches via Kickstarter on Monday November 4th.
