The new Secret Lair cards represent the second major crossover of the year for the storied card game.
Wizards of the Coast have announced the next major crossover for Magic: The Gathering and it ushers in a zombie apocalypse. A teaser email reveals five new variants based on AMC’s The Walking Dead with characters including Rick, Glen, Darryl, Michonne, and Negan represented.
A full reveal of the cards is scheduled for Sunday, October 4th on a special episode of Talking Dead, beginning 11 PM EST. The news follows the beginning of the tenth season of AMC’s hit show and the debut of a teen oriented spinoff, The Walking Dead: World Beyond.
Secret Lair drops are for extremely limited periods of time–usually a day–and The Walking Dead set follows releases including cute and cuddly variants, slime monsters, and more. Godzilla and other kaiju joined the roster through the Ikoria: Lair of the Behemoths set earlier this year.
