The Walking Dead's Robert Kirkman Sued Over AMC Series

Reported by Outsiders - 11:59 AM 2012.02.10
Alleged co-creator Michael Anthony Moore of The Walking Dead comic has filed suit against his comic partner Robert Kirkman, accusing him of promissory fraud, breach of written contract and other charges over the AMC series. 'Moore claims that Kirkman persuaded him to assign his rights on Walking Dead and other properties to a limited liability corporation controlled by Kirkman, who allegedly hasn’t shared any royalty or other payments for Walking Dead or any of the other works.'

When questioned, Kirkman’s attorney Allen B. Grodsky told sources, “It’s pretty ridiculous. Mr. Moore is owed absolutely nothing. There is no fraud. No money owed. No credit.” “...when all is said and done Mr. Moore is going to end up paying Mr. Kirkman’s attorneys fees.” Additionally, Moore’s credit for the first six issues of the comic is listed as: penciler, inker, gray tones.

Moore is claiming that Kirkman informed him that if he didn’t assign his rights as specified it would kill the “large television deal on the table” and no one would receive any money. Kirkman allegedly promised to pay Moore royalties and provide regular, accurate accountings. Moore claims that Kirkman has never paid any royalties or provided an accounting of profit or loss.
