Robert Kirkman’s adult oriented superhero comic Invincible is being adapted as an animated series at Amazon Studios…
Robert Kirkman — best known as the creator of The Walking Dead — will see another of his comic books come to live as an animated series on Amazon.
Invincible — the story of a 17 year old boy named Mark Grayson, who begins developing super power after discovering that he’s actually the son of the most powerful hero in the entire universe — will be adapted into an original animated series at Amazon with eight episodes already ordered for the first season.
Invincible just ended its 144 issue run earlier this year.
“I couldn’t be more proud of the series Cory Walker, Ryan Ottley and I did together for over 15 years,” Kirkman said in a statement. “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!”
There’s no exact time when Invincible will drop on Amazon or who will be in charge of the animation for the series just yet.
