Aside from the obvious success of the Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman has amassed quite the career thus far. This Creator Spotlight will not focus on the Walking Dead comics Robert has done because InvestComics has already covered most of them throughout the years. We’re going to focus on his body of work besides TWD, which is quite impressive to say the least. A young career, but yet so vast.

Super Dinosaur #1 (2011) Yes this book really exist. It went to three printings too. The series lasted 23 issues.
Thief of Thieves #1 (2012) This series was a boiling book at one time. Never mind a hot one. It still commands some money in the aftermarket, but has since cooled down because of the lack of non-movement regarding a television show. Speculators however still anticipate something to happen.
Playboy Vol 59 #3 (2012) The Walking Dead; Michonne’s origin appeared in this magazine. And you Walking Dead fans thought you owned everything.
Outcast #1 (2014) This comic will be a soon to be television series. Get on this book now before it becomes too far out of possible reach. If the television series falls, no matter, still a great comic book.
Invest wisely. Read comics.
