Image Comics announced the news earlier today, as well as upcoming details from Fox International on the news that broke last week regarding a pilot episode on Cinemax. Kirkman, undoubtedly best known for his hit comic series The Walking Dead, is for the first time in years, delving back into writing with the new horror comic series from Image Comics.
