SDCC: Image exclusives announced

Aside form a healthy selection of panels and presentations, publisher Image Comics has a whole mess of exclusives in store for show-goers. There are a ton of variant covers, an action figure, and... a watch?

Yeah, it's a timepiece all right- but this just might be the most infectious timepiece you'll ever own.

THE WALKING DEAD #100 Vannen Watch

Limited to 500 units, One per person
That's not all there is for Dead fans though- If you read this site regularly, then you'll remember that awesome hardcover tome, The Walking Dead Compendium will also be available at the show. But seriously, once that one's gone, it's gone.
