Announcements

Walking Dead co-creator Tony Moore made an announcement on his Twitter account that five pages from his upcoming Venom #1 have been stolen in transit to the inker. He asks that art dealers and collectors keep an eye out for them.
 
Reportedly the box had been tampered with upon arrival with the pages missing and others damaged. Production can continue because he made hi-resolution scans but the whole situation still sucks.
