Robert Kirkman        

Writer and Creator of "Outcast," "The Walking Dead" and its Spin-off, "Fear the Walking Dead"

Robert Kirkman is a New York Times bestselling author known for being the cultural zeitgeist of the comic book industry. Following the grassroots success of the self-published "Battle Pope," Kirkman caught the eye of Image Comics founding partner Erik Larsen. After several short-term projects ("Suerpatriot" and "Techjacket"), he achieved superstar status in 2003 with "Invincible" and "The Walking Dead." During a subsequent stint at Marvel Comics, he gained many new fans with the haunting and hilarious Marvel Zombies.

MTV translated Kirkman’s "Invincible" into a motion comic -- one of the first in a growing industry trend. Kirkman’s "Skybound" imprint, under the Image Comics umbrella, is committed to fostering up-and-coming talent in the industry, and all acquisitions are hand-picked by Kirkman himself.

Kirkman won the 2010 Eisner Award for Best Continuing Series for "The Walking Dead." AMC’s interpretation of the comic has received glowing reviews from critics and fans alike, and continues to garner the highest ratings for the network, making it a game changer for groundbreaking television on cable.

Recently, Kirkman co-created and co-wrote the drama/horror series, "Fear the Walking Dead." The show is a spin-off of "The Walking Dead" and follows new characters as they face the beginning of the end of the world. He also created the 2016 Cinemax series, "Outcast."
