Metropolis Gallery’s Walking Dead Exhibit opened the night of Friday October 6 and was quickly overrun by an infestation of hundreds of “dead” fans. The exhibit features scores of covers, splashes, and pages of original comic art, production art from the AMC network hit show, as well as dozens of CGC-certified highest-graded Walking Dead comic books. “We are overjoyed with the response to the exhibit and the collection,” said Vincent Zurzolo, curator of Metropolis Gallery and co-owner of auction house ComicConnect. “The exhibit runs through December 1st while the Walking Dead Auction ends on December 5th.”
