Tony Moore, instrumental in The Walking Dead comics, made an appearance in Fort Wayne Saturday.
Moore held a Pop Up shop at Studio 13 Tattoo. A lot of his merchandise, including t-shirts, sketches, art posters, patches, pins, comic book covers were available for purchase.
Moore said he threw whatever he could into his car.
Moore said he was a few credits shy of a B.F.A. from the University of Louisville when he dropped out to take a comic book job. Moore said he couldn’t turn down an offer to work on “He-Man” comics.
From there, he and Robert Kirkman started working on the Walking Dead in a spare bedroom of Kirkman’s home in Lexington.
The 39-year-old Moore was responsible for artwork through the first six comics but contributed additional artistic work through #24.
From there, Walking Dead became a hit television show on AMC.
Moore said he is friends with the owners of Studio 13 Tattoo and was in town to discuss business and decided to hold the Pop Up shop to meet with some fans in the Summit City.
