The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman has plenty to show off at Comic-Con 2015 between either of AMC’s two zombie dramas, but what of Cinemax’s forthcoming exorcism thriller Outcast, based on his Image comic with artist Paul Azaceta? The first poster for the new series has arrived, along with a new comic cover that reveals Gone Girl star Patrick Fugit in the central role.

Before debuting its major presence at Comic-Con this year, Cinemax’s Outcast conjures its first creepy poster, illustrating (literally) how Kyle Barnes has dealt with possession as far back as childhood. A Skybound comics special re-print also reveals the first look at Fugit himself as Barnes, evoking some of the comic’s own past imagery.

Also among the cast is Philip Glenister in the hard-drinking, hard-gambling role of Reverend Anderson, a West Virginian evangelical preacher who believes himself soldier in God’s holy war against evil, as well as Annabelle star Gabriel Bateman as a young boy who appears to be possessed by a demon and has a mysterious connection to Kyle. The Guest and You’re Next helmer Adam Wingard will also direct the pilot episode.

We’ll see more of what Outcast has in store at Comic-Con 2015, but do the first few images effectively translate the tone?
