Issue #1 of Outcast— the newest comic by Walking Deadsuperstarwriter Robert Kirkman — hit shelves this week, and if it’s anything like his zombie epic, we’re in for one hell of a ride.
Kirkman, in addition to being a writer, is one of five partners at Image Comics, one of the leading indie comic publishers in the industry. Despite being the only partner who’s not a co-founder, it hasn’t stopped him from becoming something of a poster child for the company—his flagship comic series is on its whopping 129th issue and has spawned one of the highest rated cable TV dramas. It’s kind of tough to top that.
But Image has been changing the comics industry long before Walking Dead was ever a thing.
