Robert Kirkman to Launch Comic Book Series ‘Fire Power’ in May

Robert Kirkman (“The Walking Dead”) is teaming with artist Chris Samnee (“Daredevil”) colorist Matt Wilson (“Paper Girls,” “The Wicked + The Divine”), and letterer Rus Wooton (“The Walking Dea”) for an all-new comic book called “Fire Power.” It launched from Image/Skybound in May 2020.

The logline: Owen Johnson’s journey to China to learn about his birth parents eventually leads him to a mysterious Shaolin Temple. The students there study to rediscover the Fire Power, the lost art of throwing fireballs. A power they claim will be needed soon to save the world. Will Owen Johnson be the first person in a thousand years to wield the Fire Power?

This is the first new project from Kirkman since the conclusion to mega-hit “The Walking Dead.”
