AMC bringing The Walking Dead to TV
In 2003, writer Robert Kirkman and artist Tony Moore created the graphic novel about a small-town Kentucky cop struggling to survive following a global epidemic causing the dead to rise from the grave.
Here’s the Kansas City connection: Moore lived in Kansas City for three years, ending last September. Although Moore isn’t involved with The Walking Dead anymore, hasn’t been for a while — he stopped illustrating the interior of the book with issue No. 6 but continued the cover art through issue No. 24 (his work earned him two Eisner Award nominations) — his Web site reveals his feelings over the cable network picking up what he helped bring to life.
