After the collapse of society, one of the first things to go will surely be knowing what time it is. We’ve become so reliant on our phone’s clock that we’d be plunged into instant time-ignorance once the battery went dead. So what’s a future zombie apocalypse survivor to do? Why, buy a watch of course! Luckily, Skybound and Vannen have teamed up to bring forth a wrist watch influenced by Image Comics’ The Walking Dead! Yes, now you too can know what time it is when huddled in the corner of a remote cabin in the woods, playing with your Walking Dead action figures as a swarm of the undead do their damndest to get inside and eat your face!
VANNEN AND SKYBOUND TO RELEASE THE WALKING DEAD LIMITED EDITION WRIST WATCH
Robert Kirkman, the creator/writer of The Walking Dead and Charlie Adlard, the artist for Skybound’s Eisner award-winning The Walking Dead comic book series, have partnered with Vannen to create a limited edition wrist watch.
