Robert Kirkman Creates his Own Imprint

Robert Kirkman has announced a new Image Comics imprint to help recruit new comics creators.

Skybound will offer advance payment and marketing aid to new writers and artists, and will assist them with negotiations if their property receives interest from outside the comics industry, including movie and merchandise deals, reports Robot 6.

Kirkman's own Walking Dead and Invincible titles will be moved under the Skybound banner.

The first Skybound title will be Brandon Seifert and Lukas Ketner's Witch Doctor, followed by a collaboration between Kirkman and Nick Spencer (Morning Glories) called Thief of Thieves.

The imprint will be officially unveiled on Thursday at Kirkman's Comic-Con International panel.

Witch Doctor will debut in early 2011.
