Entertainment Weekly has unveiled the cover for Robert Kirkman’sThe Walking Dead: Invasion, the sixth prose novel expanding upon the universe of the long-running comics series.
Written once again by Jay Bonansinga, the book follows the events of last fall’s Descent, with protagonist Lilly Caul struggling with a ragtag group of survivors struggling to carve out a new life after the fall of Woodbury. Here’s the synopsis from publisher Thomas Dunne Books:
Skybound, Robert Kirkman’s Image Comics imprint, will debut limited-edition hardcovers of the writer’s series The Walking Dead and Thief of Thieves at New York Comic Con, held Oct. 11-14 in New York City.

In addition, Kirkman will participate in two NYCC panels: “Skybound: On the Rise,” with Shawn Martinbrough, Jason Howard and special guests (2:45 p.m. Friday, Oct. 12); and “Kirkmania!,” in which he’ll take questions from the audience (1:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 14).
