Writer Robert Kirkman began The Walking Dead because of curiosity about life in the zombie apocalypse after most movies roll credits, but horror icon John Carpenter isn’t impressed with the creator cribbing from George Romero. The Thing and Halloween director believes The Walking Dead has been “milking” its zombie forefathers, and isn’t worth our time
Cinemax will say goodbye to one of its all-time attractions this weekend, but the next great thrill is more than ready to possess you. Enter Outcast, based on the comic by Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman and artist Paul Azaceta, as the first episode has arrived online to preview right now!
AMC’s love of comic book culture has spread like wildfire in recent years, from two Walking Dead series to Kevin Smith’s Comic Book Men to Preacher, and now Dead creator Robert Kirkman will fan the flames. The network has officially commissioned a new History of Comic Books docu-series exploring the medium’s very origins into 2017.
Robert Kirkman's concepts seem to be doing fairly okay for themselves right now, with The Walking Dead leading the way to two of the most popular shows in the world, and the small-screen debut of Outcast just around the corner. His latest project for his Image imprint Skybound is a new miniseries developed alongside Marc Silvestri that will be written and drawn by two of comics fastest rising stars.
Demonic is about a New York City police officer who is an upstanding family man, great colleague, and stellar employee, who also happens to house a demon within his body that, if given its way, would break free and slaughter everyone in New York City. Written by Christopher Sebela with art by Niko Walter and Dan Brown, Demonic is set for release via Skybound later this year.
Supernatural horror is all the rage these days, and Robert Kirkman and Paul Azaceta’s Cinemax Outcast has a bit of work ahead to distinguish itself from the similar aesthetic of AMC’s Preacher. Thankfully, the latest trailer offers a bit more visual flair amid the scares, as does a brand new poster.
The Walking Dead has borrowed somewhat more liberally from its source material than adaptations like Game of Thrones, though there always remains a possibility of the AMC drama catching up to, even overtaking writer and creator Robert Kirkman’s work. The live-action Walking Dead has covered roughly 2/3 of the comics over six seasons, so is Kirkman worried about it catching up?
The Walking Dead Season 7 has already begun production, kicking off a new round of fan investigation to fill the void of Game of Thrones‘’ latest twist, and giving producers one hell of a challenge to keep Negan’s victim under wraps. That said, creator Robert Kirkman isn’t done defending the controversial cliffhanger, likening it to the best episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and wanting fans to hope, not grieve.
The Walking Dead has become a titan of independent comics since its debut in 2003, and despite the television shows, novels and video games, the actual comic franchise has been heavily guarded by its co-creator Robert Kirkman. Very few people can say that they’ve worked on Walking Dead comics, but as of today Brian K. Vaughan and Marcos Martin can be counted among that select group thanks to the release of the digital one-shot The Walking Dead: The Alien, available now via Panel Snydicate.
And lo, The Walking Dead has come to yet another end, closing out Season 6 with at least someone’s “Last Day on Earth,” though it’s safe to say fan reactions to Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s introduction as Negan proved … divisive. Now, showrunner Scott Gimple and creator Robert Kirkman open up on the big twist, possible backlash, and what it means for Season 7.
The dead will surely walk for Robert Kirkman this coming weekend, but may do much worse by the time Cinemax’s Outcast premieres. A new trailer for the exorcism horror series puts the emphasis on evil in town, pulling out every scary camera trick in the book.
