Issue #1 of Outcast — the newest comic by Walking Dead superstar writer 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.

Posted by Raphael in: Reviews | 1 Comment

Midtown Bloggerinos! Raph here, with a new installment of one of my favorite posts from last year! I love science fiction, it’s one of the major backbones of comics, and has helped unleashed the imagination of countless millions.
