If you can get your name attached to a Robert Kirkman project, then you jump at it. That’s what writer Chris Sebela has done, as he and artist Niko Walter will tackle Demonic, which was co-created by Kirkman and Marc Silvestri.
There is a better-than-even chance that this series will wind up making it’s way to television, as most of Kirkman’s work (other than Invincible) has done. In all likelihood, Kirkman outsourced this project due to his ever-increasing portfolio of television work.
The first issue of the supernatural series is set to hit shelves on August 17th.
