The Walking Dead comic series, illustrated by Shrewsbury artist Charlie Adlard, has come to a surprise end.

Fans have been snapping up copies after it went on sale yesterday, but weren't told in advance it was going to be the final issue.

The series has been running since 2003 and is the inspiration for the popular TV show of the same name. There is an exhibition of Mr Adlard's work on display at the Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery.

The Walking Dead's final edition is already being resold for more than five times its original value.
