Fans of Robert Kirkman may soon have more than a dwindling supply of walkers to tune in for. Amazon has just announced that they’ll be teaming up with the creator to bring his ‘Invincible’ comic book to the screen as an adult-oriented, animated series.
On the new addition to their programming, Sharon Yguado, Head of Scripted Genre Programming, Amazon Studios, had to say:
“Robert has an uncanny talent to predict the zeitgeist, and we are incredibly excited to see him break boundaries in an animated one-hour format. In a world saturated with superhero fare, we trust Robert to subvert expectations while encapsulating a story filled with heart and adrenaline. We love his ambitious plan for the show and believe it will look like nothing else on television.”
For his part, Kirkman had this to add:
“I couldn’t be more proud of the series Cory Walker, Ryan Ottley and I did together for over 15 years. To know our characters will live on in multiple iterations in other media is almost too exciting to bear! What Amazon is allowing us to do in animated form is nothing short of ground-breaking, and I can’t wait for our rabid fan base to experience it!”
