Robert Kirkman Responds to The Walking Dead Lawsuit
After a long day of over forty news stories, you may have forgotten about The Walking Dead lawsuit filed against Robert Kirkman. Today the man himself issued a response.
According to THR, Kirkman, the comic book writer who created The Walking Dead and the hit AMC television series by the same name, is firing back at the lawsuit filed Thursday by childhood friend and collaborator Tony Moore, who claims he was duped into signing away his rights to the lucrative franchise.
In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Kirkman, repped by attorney Allen Grodsky, writes:
"The lawsuit is ridiculous; we each had legal representation seven years ago, and now he is violating the same contract he initiated and approved and he wants to misrepresent the fees he was paid and continues to be paid for the work he was hired to do. Tony regularly receives payment for the work he did as penciler, inker and for gray tones on the first six issues of The Walking Dead comic series, and he receives royalties for the TV show; to assert otherwise is simply incorrect."
