The first six covers, illustrated by superstar artists Michael Golden, Arthur Suydam, Julian Totino Tedesco, Neal Adams, Ethan Van Sciver and Mike Zeck, respectively, were huge hits at Wizard World events in Portland (February, Golden), St. Louis (March, Suydam), Philadelphia (June, Tedesco), New York (June, Adams), Chicago (August, Van Sciver) and Columbus (September, Zeck).

Another creator will draw the variant cover art for Wizard World Austin Comic Con in November, the final remaining scheduled event in 2013.

Comic book grading service CGC, a leader in the industry, will accept TWD #1 variant and Signature Series submissions at its Wizard World Nashville Comic Con exhibitor booth.
