THE WALKING DEAD #100 -- 383,612 COPIES

According to Image Comics, The Walking Dead #100 is now the top-selling comic book of the century after selling out its initial orders of 383,612 on July 11, the day it was released.

Image claims it is the best-selling comic book for any publisher in initial orders since The Darkness #11 in 1997.

The Walking Dead, created and written by Robert Kirkman with art by Charlie Adlard -- featuring 13 variant covers for the 100th issue.

"The Walking Dead continues to greatly exceed all my expectations in all forms," said Robert Kirkman. "I am especially excited for what this means for comics as an industry, that this is an independent comic hitting that number.

"The future of comics couldn't be brighter as more and more readers are embracing new ideas in a big way."

"This is a remarkable achievement," said Image publisher Eric Stephenson. "It's extremely uncommon, if not flat-out rare, for a comic book to see a sustained increase in sales following its first issue, but The Walking Dead steadily climbed up and up since its launch in 2003, and we couldn't be more proud of Robert, Charlie and the whole Walking Dead team."
