Robert Kirkman is doing all right for himself. He has a successful TV series, more of them in development, and his first love, comic books, has continued to treat him well with increased comic sales on his own series, plus the steady growth of his own imprint at Image Comics, Skybound. A pair of panels at Emerald City Comicon 2013 celebrated both, though Kirkman himself could not attend.
With The Walking Dead comic gaining herds of readers from the television show, theSkybound: On the Rise panel was a showcase for exciting titles in the horror and heist genres from up and coming creators. Joining Editorial Director Sean Mackiewicz was Invincible artist Ryan Ottley, The Walking Dead artist Charlie Adlard, Witch Doctor writer Brandon Seifert and the newest member of the imprint, Ghosted writer Joshua Williamson.
Mackiewicz began the panel with showing the cover for The Walking Dead #108, featuring the first appearance of Ezekiel, who has long white dreadlocks, is sitting on a throne with a tiger prowling behind him. Afterward, the series will revisit Maggie’s story on the hilltop and then the cover for #110 was revealed with the teaser title, “Lucile is going to be jealous.” The WalkingDead.com site was launched to be the one stop Walking Dead stop for the latest news on comic and TV show, plus more letters answered. Adlard dispelled any rumors that “there are no intentions of a Walking Dead spinoff title.
