The Walking Dead Lawsuit Resolved…

The Walking Dead started out as a comic series back in 2003 published by Image Comics, created by writer Robert Kirkman and artist Tony Moore the series has gone on to achieve sustained popularity and a TV adaptation from AMC.

Artist Tony Moore was only on the series for a short time, he did the artwork for the first few issues and was then replaced from issue 7 onwards, though he continued to do cover artwork for another 20 issues or so.

Early in 2012 a lawsuit was filed against Robert Kirkman by Tony Moore, over the ownership and rights of the hit property, and on the verge of season three of the TV series beginning to screen in the US, the legal battle around the franchise has been resolved.

Kirkman and Moore have released a joint statement as follows;

Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore are pleased to jointly announce that they have reached an amicable agreement in their respective lawsuits and all parties have settled the entire matter to everyone’s mutual satisfaction. Neither side will be discussing any details but will instead happily and productively spend their time focused on their own work and move on in their lives.

with that unpleasantness all resolved, bring on the zombies! Seasons one and two are currently available to purchase on DVD/blu-ray with the books also being readily available in a number of different formats at your local comic book store!

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
