I'm Not Saying Image Comics Is Miking The Popularity Of The Walking Dead, But...

OK, I'm not saying Image Comics and Robert Kirkman are taking advantage of The Walking Dead's current popularity and milking it for everything it's worth, but...

This exists. Yep, it's a reprint of the first trade paperback of The Walking Dead comic, en espanol. Yep, at long, long last, the first six issues of everyone's favorite award winning zombie comic book has been translated into Spanish. Timely too, considering the English version was first published in 2006.

Ehh, why not? Who knows, maybe this isn't the blatant cash grab it appears to be at first glance. Maybe the Latino community felt left out of the zombie craze and requested, nay demanded a comic book they could actually read. Maybe Image and Kirkman have the right idea after all. But maybe they didn't take it far enough!

Why not a Mandarin version? China's an awakening giant with well over a billion potential readers. Of course it may need altered a bit to fit the culture...

Why stop there? Oy vey iz mir, it wouldn't be kosher to leave out our friends of the Jewish persuasion. You'll be more than a little verklempt when you read these terrifying translated tales of the undead. 

Hey Image Comics-- don't forget to print the book so it reads right to left!

For the past few months Pope Francis has been doing his best to drag the Catholic church kicking and screaming into the 20th Century (yes, I meant to say 20th), but so far he hasn't made known his stance on zombies. So go ahead and simultaneously enjoy and feel guilty about reading this special Catholic version of the book!
