Kirkman’s Skybound Entertainment Signs with Amazon: The Comic Industry Perspective

11 August 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The news broke this morning that The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman has signed an exclusive deal with Amazon for his Skybound Entertainment Properties. This is obviously huge news in the landscape of TV and streaming entertainment, as Kirkman is the man responsible for creating the entertainment juggernaut that is The Walking Dead. While The Walking Dead was a pretty big hit as a comic, it took some convincing for the show to eventually be created. You may be surprised to know it took over five years for the show to find a home. Of course, it ended up on AMC, and the rest is history. That history with AMC hasn’t always been smooth though and it may be why Kirkman has signed this latest deal. What does it mean for the properties currently appearing in the pages of the comics under the Skybound banner?

Comic-Con 2017: Watch the Full “Robert Kirkman: In Conversation” Panel

22 July 2017 2:55 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Anyone who has attended or watched a panel with Robert Kirkman knows that he's always great with a crowd. That's why, in more recent years, he's held a panel at Comic-Con where it's just him up on stage answering audience questions. Thanks to Skybound, we have the entire Comic-Con 2017 panel for you to watch right now!

Robert Kirkman's usual sense of humor is on full display here, so don't expect him to give away any secrets from The Walking Dead (even though that didn't stop fans from asking). That said, he talks about working toward the end of the comic book series, the eventual death of Rick Grimes, the recent major character death, and much more. Outside of The Walking Dead, Kirkman comments on George A. Romero's passing, the Invincible movie, and what's next for Outcast.

Can Seth Rogen's Invincible break Marvel and DC's superhero stranglehold?

10 April 2017 11:30 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are to adapt Robert Kirkman’s Invincible series for the big screen. Could this be the shakeup the comic-book adaptation needs?

Marvel and DC have often been a little prickly when it comes to others infringing on terrain they consider their own. A New York Daily News report estimated in 2013 that the two publishers had sued at least 35 people over the previous decade, just for using the term “superhero”. What’s perhaps more surprising is that, despite the current boom in comic-book movies, the big two haven’t really needed to call in the lawyers to ensure their virtual duopoly at the multiplex. Of the top 20 highest-grossing superhero movies of all time, all but one are based on a property that originally appeared in comics published by either Marvel or DC. And the exception – 2004 Pixar animation The Incredibles – is in any case now owned by Marvel parent company Disney. »

The Walking Dead’s Robert Kirkman’s Invincible to be adapted by Rogen and Goldberg

5 April 2017 7:02 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have joined forces with The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman to help bring to life Kirkman’s Invincible comic, the comic which has been in circulation since 2003, for Universal.

Related: The Walking Dead News and Interviews

Invincible was created by Kirkman alongside Ryan Ottley and Cory Walker back in 2003 and, besides The Walking Dead, it is Kirkman’s longest running title, now on its 133rd issue. The story follows Mark Grayson, a normal high school student with just one difference between him and his peers — his father is the most powerful superhero on the planet, and he, too, will inherit his own set of superpowers.

On teaming up with Rogen and Goldberg for the adaptation, Kirkman said “For nearly a decade I’ve had to endure the ‘what about Invincible?’ question as fans have watched The Walking Dead grow into the multimedia »

Preacher Duo Take on Walking Dead Creator's Invincible Movie

4 April 2017 3:36 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Robert Kirkman, who is best known for creating The Walking Dead, is about to bring one of his other comic creations to the world of live-action. His second-longest-running series, Invincible, is headed to the big screen at Universal, and the movie is going to be written and directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. It wasn't said explicitly in the report, but it looks like this will be the latest R-rated comic book movie to enter development, following the success of Deadpool and Logan.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, Seth Rogen and Even Goldberg have been tapped to write, direct and produce the Invincible movie, with Robert Kirkman on board to produce, via his company Skybound Entertainment. Invincible has been running for more than 130 issues and is set to conclude later this year, but it looks like the Image Comics series will live on as a movie franchise, assuming this first movie goes well. »

Invincible movie coming, Seth Rogen involved

Mike Cecchini Apr 5, 2017

Robert Kirkman may be best known for The Walking Dead, but there's Invincible too. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are making a movie of it...

If you only associate Robert Kirkman's name with the zombie horror of The Walking Dead, you're missing out on a key piece of his career which has run for nearly as long. Kirkman is the co-creator (along with Ryan Ottley and Cory Walker) of Invincible, one of the longest running and most successful independent superhero comics in recent memory. Considering the runaway success of The Walking Dead on TV, you'd think we'd have seen Invincible make the jump to live action by now.

Well, it's finally time.

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg will write, direct, and produce an Invincible movie for Universal. Rogen and Goldberg are no stranger to adapting long running, beloved comics, as they're behind AMC's Preacher TV series, »

Robert Kirkman’s Invincible Being Brought To The Big Screen By Seth Rogen And Evan Goldberg

4 April 2017 3:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Even if you don’t read comic books, chances are you’ll be familiar with Robert Kirkman’s name. The Image Comics scribe is the creator of The Walking Dead, a series which has become a global phenomenon since being brought to television by AMC. However, what you may not know is that Kirkman has another long-running comic called Invincible, which is also well past the #100 issue mark.

It tells the story of Mark Grayson, a half human/half alien teenager who develops superpowers and becomes “invincible” in a world full of larger than life characters. His adventures have taken place on Earth and in the far reaches of space, and while it’s clearly inspired by Spider-Man and mainstream superhero universes such as those created by Marvel and DC Comics, Invincible also features some seriously graphic violence amidst epic action scenes. For that reason, it’s always been hard »

After The Walking Dead’s massive success on television, fans of Robert Kirkman have wondered whether another of his comic book series Invincible would ever get a live-action adaptation. Well, it seems that is now set to happen as The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg will write, produce and direct an Invincible feature film for Universal.

Created by Kirkman in 2003, Invincible is the story of high school student Marc Grayson, whose father is the world’s mightiest superhero – Omni-Man.

The series has been Image’s second longest title, now having 133 issues, after The Walking Dead.
