Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) is all the rage these days (um, when is he not?) and we’re totally loving it. The second half of the fourth season of his show, The Walking Dead, resumes on Sunday, February 9, and that’s just the beginning for the 45-year-old actor.

We’ve already told you about the Twitter Q&A Norman has set up just 30 minutes before Sunday’s long-awaited midseason premiere, and yesterday, February 5, we were thrilled to get a peek at the March 2014 issue of Nylon For Guys. As you may have noticed from the above photo, Norm is the mag’s March coverboy and he’s never looked better.

He shared the cover shot on Instagram sans caption (because, does it really need one?) and we were immediately mesmerized by his withering stare, abundance of scruff, and general presence. Also, props to the magazine’s stylist for outfitting Norman in a mustard-colored leather jacket that matches the text. It’s not something we would’ve picked (shirtless is always our top choice where Norman is concerned) but the model-turned-actor totally pulls it off.

The cover text reads: “Norman Reedus Is Straight-Up Killing It,” and we think that sums everything up perfectly.

As if a magazine cover wasn’t enough, Norman is also hosting a private dinner for Nylon For Guys in honor of his issue. The soiree is set to take place just one day after the midseason premiere, on February 10 at 8 p.m. ET in New York City. But if you can’t make it out to the Big Apple and need your Norman fix ASAP, be sure to catch him and the rest of the TWD cast on Conan tonight, February 6, for their first-ever televised interview as a group.

The Walking Dead Season 4 returns with Episode 9 on Sunday, February 9 at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
