While The Walking Dead franchise continues to be kept alive by AMC’s hit TV series, and its two spin-offs, the original comic book series came to a sudden end last month. Now, the artist behind The Walking Dead comics has said he has had enough of zombies.
Artist Charlie Adlard, who spent 15 years illustrating the the cult series, told BBC news that he had also turned down something “zombie-related” from Marvel for the same reason.
The black-and-white monthly, which spawned the AMC’s TV series, two spin-offs and a video game series, had run for 193 issues before stunning fans by coming to an end in July 2019.
Talking about the offer, he said: "Once you've worked on your own characters it seems like a retrograde step to be working on somebody else's characters."
