LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – The hit zombie drama “The Walking Dead” is shuffling its way toward newsstands this fall.

Titan Magazines and the Image Comics imprint Skybound will publish “The Walking Dead: The Official Magazine,” with the debut issue coming out on October 23.

The 100-page publication will feature “all the latest news, revelations and tips” for fans of both the TV series and the Robert Kirkman graphic novels upon which the series is based (and which is also published by Skybound).

Titan said that the publication will provide “exclusive access to the most successful television adaptation of a comic ever, including in-depth interviews Kirkman, executive producer/writer on the show; Glen Mazzara, showrunner/ executive Producer/Writer of the series and David Alpert, executive producer of the series.”

Cast interviews will also be featured in the magazine, which is currently going for a pre-order subscription price of $31.99 for four issues.

Kirkman characterized the magazine as a “one-stop destination for all the news pertaining to the comic, TV show, video game, toys, games, and whatever else exists in the ever-expanding ‘Walking Dead’ universe!”

The magazine’s debut will coincide with the third-season premiere of the AMC series, which is also in October.
