The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman has just unleashed his next comic book property and it's already being picked up for a brand new television series. Entitled Outcast, the graphic novel tells the story of Kyle Barnes who "has been plagued by demonic possessions his entire life, and he's decided that he's going to dive deeper into what's been occurring to him…and try to figure out what it is he's been experiencing."

A television adaptation is already in development over at FOX International Channels. Here's what Sharon Tal Yguado of FOX had to say during a press conference call:

Exorcism has captivated movie audiences all over the world but has never been explored on television. Robert Kirkman, who forever changed the scope of Cable TV with The Walking Dead, possesses an unparalleled talent of telling big concept stories in a smart and incredibly genuine way. We couldn’t be more excited to be working with him on this project, which we see as a reinvention of the genre.

Kirkman himself added:

It's going to be a big story – very epic – and we're going to meet a lot of characters along the way and probably lose a few of them. There probably won't be as much of a blood bath as Walking Dead... but when you're doing an independent comic and can do whatever you want, it's fun to keep people guessing.

What do you think? Are you glad to see more from The Walking Dead creator, or is demonic possession not really your thing? Let us know below.
