AMAZON STUDIOS GREENLIGHTS INVINCIBLE FROM THE WALKING DEAD CREATOR ROBERT KIRKMAN
Series to premiere globally on Amazon Prime Video in over 200 countries and territories



SANTA MONICA, Calif., June 19, 2018 – Amazon Studios today announced it has greenlit the hour-long animated series Invincible from acclaimed writer Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead, Oblivion Song) co-creator Cory Walker and artist Ryan Ottley. Based on the popular comic book series of the same name, the eight-episode series will premiere globally on Amazon Prime Video in over 200 countries and territories.

“Robert has an uncanny talent to predict the zeitgeist, and we are incredibly excited to see him break boundaries in an animated one-hour format,” said Sharon Yguado, Head of Scripted Genre Programming, Amazon Studios. “In a world saturated with superhero fare, we trust Robert to subvert expectations while encapsulating a story filled with heart and adrenaline. We love his ambitious plan for the show and believe it will look like nothing else on television.”

Robert Kirkman commented, “I couldn’t be more proud of the series Cory Walker, Ryan Ottley and I did together for over 15 years. To know our characters will live on in multiple iterations in other media is almost too exciting to bear! What Amazon is allowing us to do in animated form is nothing short of ground-breaking, and I can’t wait for our rabid fan base to experience it!”

About Invincible
From Robert Kirkman and Cory Walker and based on the Skybound / Image comic of the same name, Invincible is an adult animated superhero show that revolves around Mark Grayson, a normal teenager except for the fact that his father is the most powerful superhero on the planet. Shortly after his seventeenth birthday, Mark begins to develop powers of his own and enters into his father’s tutelage. The series is suspenseful, action-filled, and emotion-packed, yet builds upon poignant and heartwarming moments of love, friendship, and humanity.

Invincible is produced by Skybound, with Simon Racioppa (Teen Titans) serving as showrunner. The series is executive produced by Kirkman, Racioppa, David Alpert (The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead), Catherine Winder (The Angry Birds Movie, Star Wars: The Clone Wars) with Supervising Directors Justin & Chris Copeland (Avengers Assemble, Ultimate Spider-Man). Invincible, Kirkman’s second-longest comic-book series, concluded in February 2018 after a 15-year run. The full series is available across 23 countries and in eight languages and is also currently in development separately as a feature-length movie.

Read the first few trades few years ago and loved it. With this announcement I might go buy the others now that the comic is over.

I know their making a movie but I think they can really only do it justice in an animated form so again excited about this.
 
I wonder if the film is still being planned.
 
One thing about the movie that I hope is that it’s Rated R because Amazon already gets it. So I hope that Universal does too but with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg directing and writing it there’s a good chance it will be. I kinda am optimistic about the movie because of their work on Preacher. We know they can do comedy obviously but it shows that they can do drama and action as well. At least from the two episodes they directed.

Footage!!!!! Please.
 
I love some of the character names Rex Splode Dupli Kate I wonder what their abilities are he he
 
Looks pretty sick! I’ll check it out but the animation leaves a little to be desired(it’s no One-Punch Man) I like what I’m seeing so far.
 
I think the teaser was great and from what I know of the comic that glimpse of the violence in the battles ain’t nothing compared to what comes later. Some crazy **** goes down.
 
Still think this show should've been live action but thats just me. This could've rivaled The Boys or TWD if it were.
 
I love seeing comic **** in live action as much as anyone else, but I don’t see animation as a step down. It’s the most authentic way to translate comic visuals to the screen, tbh.
