DESCRIPTION
Tony Moore pencils and inks; page 6; 2003; image size 10.5" x 15.5"
1st time we see the dead walking, 2nd Tony Moore Splash

This historic splash page, signed by Tony Moore from issue #1 of The Walking Dead, represents the first appearance ever of the undead walking scourge. The walkers make their debut, not in a graveyard or a haunted house, but in a place even more disturbing -- a hospital cafeteria. We've all experienced dehumanizing institutional settings in real life, but the addition of freshly reanimated corpses yearning for human flesh into this typically sanitary and orderly environment creates an emotional discord, playing on our deepest fears of mortality, and beyond. It's a magnificent depiction of some very messy eaters. The remains of the victims are hard to distinguish from the rotting predators, except for the blood that's dribbling down the shirt of the walker in the foreground, who has a perfect "expression" of mindless hunger on his face. In poignant contrast to the carnage behind him, IV drip units are shown along the wall, relics of pure nutrition standing alongside absolutely corrupt consumption.

This is the iconic first appearance of the walkers by the artist who created them, Tony Moore worked on only the first six issues of The Walking Dead, and his pages have been eagerly snatched up by collectors. Pen and ink. Art is in excellent condition. Signed and inscribed by Moore.
