Robert Kirkman is the Chairman of Skybound Entertainment. Robert, an advocate for creator rights, co-founded Skybound alongside his longtime business and producing partner David Alpert in an effort to ensure creators are able to maintain their intellectual property rights and creative control. Kirkman continues to develop and produce multiple personal projects and has collaborations with an extensive list of creators in all divisions of Skybound, including comics, interactive games, film and television (traditional and digital platforms), licensing, and merchandising.
First and foremost a comic creator himself, Kirkman has seen groundbreaking success in the adaptation of his comic book titles into major franchises in all forms of content. In 2010, his Eisner award winning series, The Walking Dead, was developed into an AMC television series. It has become a worldwide phenomenon as the highest-rated basic cable drama of all time and is the #1 show on television among the coveted 18-49 demo. The property has also been extended into a blockbuster game franchise, licensing business and ongoing publishing success.
Kirkman also serves as consulting producer of The Talking Dead, the popular talk show hosted by Chris Hardwick that deep dives into each week’s episode of both The Walking Dead and its companion series Fear the Walking Dead. Kirkman is co-creator, writer and producer of The Walking Dead’s companion series, Fear the Walking Dead. He is also executive producer of the AMC series Robert Kirkman’s Secret History of Comics, and the Korean pre-apocalyptic drama, Five Year. Kirkman’s popular demonic-exorcism comic, Outcast, was adapted, produced and airs on Cinemax. For the big screen, Kirkman will produce Invincible based on his long-running popular comic book. The project will be written, directed and produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg for Universal Pictures. Invincible is also in development for an animated series with Amazon. Most recently Robert created Fire Power with Chris Samnee and announced the one-shot Negan Lives, which will focus on one of The Walking Dead’s most infamous characters.
Additional Kirkman comics include Oblivion Song, Die!Die!Die!, Super Dinosaur, Battle Pope, Astounding Wolf-Man, Thief of Thieves, and more.
