Robert Kirkman - Executive Producer / Writer
In addition to his work as a writer and executive producer on The Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman is also a successful creator of independent comics. Kirkman created and continues to write the long-running Image Comics title The Walking Dead, on which the show is based, and the comics have been gaining popularity through the recent 100th issue. He also writes the acclaimed and equally long-running super-hero comic Invincible, which he created with Cory Walker, and the all-ages comic Super Dinosaur, which he created with Jason Howard.
Ever an advocate for creator-owned comics, Kirkman became a partner at Image Comics in 2008. In 2010, he founded his own imprint at Image, Skybound. The first original title from Skybound, Witch Doctor, created by Brandon Seifert and Lukas Ketner, also debuted in 2010. Kirkman continues to blend his television and comics experience in the Skybound title Thief of Thieves, employing a "writers room" approach to the book, in which a writer will take charge of six issues of the comic, then pass the torch to another. “Thief of Thieves” is also in development as a TV series at AMC.
