NYCC: Robert Kirkman Spotlight
Did you know, Robert Kirkman partially based Axel from “The Walking Dead” on the writer’s one-time Marvel Comics editor Axel Alonso? According to Kirkman, Alonso would pepper their conversations with “You follow me?” a saying that gave Kirkman such a kick, he bestowed the catchphrase upon the grizzled prisoner. Facts and stories like this flowed from the writer during his New York Comic Con spotlight panel, much to the enjoyment of assembled con-goers.
After a whirlwind of a weekend thanks to non-stop appearances and signings, Kirkman was openly tired during the panel, but that didn’t stop the charismatic creator from entertaining the huge room of fans. Sitting onstage along with “Walking Dead” editor Sina Grace, Kirkman ran through a slideshow that had been previously shown at the Skybound panel before jumping directly into a Q&A session that hit the obvious questions about his influences, delved into some meatier territory and ended with one unpopular fan’s spoiling of the previous weekend’s “Breaking Bad” season finale.

‘Super Dinosaur,’ the all-ages (but mainly aimed at kids) comic book written by Robert Kirkman and illustrated by Jason Howard, is getting the trade paperback treatment. The series, starring a boy genius and a genetically modified Tyrannosaurus Rex, was a huge success earlier this year—both from a sales and critical standpoint.
