Portland Comic To Kick Off New Imprint

Posted by Jacob Schraer on Thu, Jul 22, 2010 at 9:46 AM

At Comic Con this weekend, in the fair city of San Diego, Robert Kirkman, the outrageously successful writer of the Walking Dead series, announces and previews his new imprint, Skybound. The purpose of Skybound, which does not have a website I could link to, is to expose and promote new, undiscovered talent and it kicks off with a book Witch Doctor whose creators are from Portland.

Apparently Kirkman saw an editorial cartoon from the Willamette Week by one of the creators, Lukas Ketner, and sought him out.

AMC is producing a TV series of The Walking Dead, starting this fall.

Hat tip to the New York Times for pretending they know more about Portland than I do.
