Creator of AMC’s The Walking Dead (does anyone else read show’s title in the voice of the recap guy?), Robert Kirkman, has received the go-ahead for the apdaptation of his comic Invincible. The show will be an hour-long adult animated series that will air on Amazon.
Head of Amazon scripted genre programming Sharon Yguado:
“Robert has an uncanny talent to predict the zeitgeist, and we are incredibly excited to see him break boundaries in an animated one-hour format. In a world saturated with superhero fare, we trust Robert to subvert expectations while encapsulating a story filled with heart and adrenaline. We love his ambitious plan for the show and believe it will look like nothing else on television.”
“I couldn’t be more proud of the series Cory Walker, Ryan Ottley and I did together for over 15 years. To know our characters will live on in multiple iterations in other media is almost too exciting to bear! What Amazon is allowing us to do in animated form is nothing short of ground-breaking, and I can’t wait for our rabid fan base to experience it.”
Invincible follows the story of Mark Grayson, the powerless the son of the world’s most powerful superhero who begins to develop super abilities after his seventeenth birthday. The comic launched way back in 2003 and had a 144-issue run.
