Robert Kirkman has surprise launched a new series of storyboards which will be eventually used to create a television program. The first issue of the series, titled DIE!DIE!DIE!, is being released July 11.
Kirkman isn't even hiding his television aspirations as he's enlisted The Walking Dead's former showrunner and Chief Content Officer Scott M. Gimple.
Gimple added: "I spend most of my time working in TV, the big Walking Dead programs keep me plenty busy, but I've had a burning passion for comics since I was nine. I used to go to panels to see Robert Kirkman talk. And now he's writing quotes in a press release as me that I can read over and tweak!"
Along with Gimple, Kirkman has paired with Chris Burnham on art, Nathan Fairbairn on colors, and Rus Wooten on lettering.
DIE!DIE!DIE! promises to be a blood-soaked, no holds barred, action-packed, irreverent story that fans won't be able to rip their eyes from. We live in an evil world where evil people do evil stuff all the time and DIE!DIE!DIE! lifts the veil on a secret cabal within the United States government that influences world matters through targeted assassination. The world around us is manipulated right under our noses, mostly for the better... but sometimes for individual gain, and sometimes for the fun of it.
DIE!DIE!DIE! #1 is out now.
