WITCH DOCTOR: THE RESUSCITATION, a 32-page full-color medical horror one shot comic
for $2.99, will be on sale in stores December 14 and will be available for order in
the upcoming October issue of Previews.

Robert Kirkman is a New York Times bestselling author known for being the cultural
zeitgeist of the comic book industry. Following the grassroots success of the
self-published BATTLE POPE (2000), Kirkman caught the eye of Image Comics founding
partner Erik Larsen. After several short-term projects (SUERPATRIOT and TECHJACKET),
he achieved superstar status in 2003 with INVINCIBLE and THE WALKING DEAD. During a
subsequent stint at Marvel Comics, he gained many new fans with the haunting and
hilarious Marvel Zombies. MTV translated Kirkman’s INVINCIBLE into a motion comic —
one of the first in a growing industry trend. Kirkman’s SKYBOUND imprint, under the
Image Comics umbrella, is committed to fostering up-and-coming talent in the
industry, and all acquisitions are hand-picked by Kirkman himself. Kirkman won the
2010 Eisner Award for Best Continuing Series for THE WALKING DEAD. AMC’s
interpretation of the comic has received glowing reviews from critics and fans
alike, and continues to garner the highest ratings for the network, making it a game
changer for groundbreaking television on cable. For more information about Skybound,
