From The Back Of The Rob Kirkman Panel, With Simon Pegg And Nick Frost

I say “with”. More like “on the same seat line”. Simon was reading The Boys before the panel began.

Anyway, Robert Kirkman is talking Skybound, his new talent/media exploitation line – but that they don’t take submissions.

So there’s Witch Doctor by Brandon Seifert and Lukas Ketner, described as Doctor Strange meets House for 2011. More to come. Just don’t send any more submissions. If they want you… they will find you!

And… aw… Robert just said that there hasn’t been a zombie show on TV before. What was Dead Set then eh? Eh?

One questioner said that he had expected a skinny waid as Robert Kirkman and the whole thing descended into Kevin Smithness. “You called me fat, in a way… but I ate the cheeseburgers myself. How could be upset? Say more.”

On Marvel Zombies, “it’s ruined I don’t know what I could do with it now… that’s a joke. It’s not a joke.”

He wishes Haunt would come out more often, and is getting a new inker on the book to speed things up when Todd doesn’t have time to ink.

And that the writers are figuring out what they are doing with Walking Dead Season 2. You know, I saw that competition to win zombie roles in Season 2. Has anyone actually announced Season 2 yet? Is this it??? Robert talks about hiring big name actors on the show, with low committments, with a promise they will die in a few episodes…

He really wants to push Ker-Boomerang from Guarding The Globe. On the basis that the character has boomerangs that explode – but don’t come back. Kirkman promises a fan favourite there. As to the name change being due to pressure from Marvel over Guardians Of The Globve, “I can’t comment on that in any way, shape or form, yes.”

And he gave us very very very strong hints about a new Tech Jacket mini-series, if only so he can put the backups from Invincible into a new Tech Jacket trade.

And he misses not being able to play Mario Galaxy 2, what with the new TV series. And he seriously would consider dropping the TV show to play the game…

I know what he’s going through.
