Original artist for THE WALKING DEAD suing Robert Kirkman

Tony Moore is a name not that many people remember. He was the original artist for the first six issues of The Walking Dead. Now it turns out that he feels he isn’t getting his fair share of the profits from the series and is now suing Robert Kirkman. Read on for the details.


From THR:

“In the complaint, a copy of which was obtained by THR, Moore says he was duped into assigning his interest in the material over to Kirkman, who has since gone on to fame and fortune. Moore, on the other hand, has received very little compensation and has not be able to access profit statements from properties including Walking Dead, he says.”

“Each of these works was prepared by [Moore] and Kirkman with the intention that their contributions be merged into inseparable or independent parts of a unitary whole,” the complaint states. “[Moore] and Kirkman were thus joint authors and co-owners of the copyrights in these works.”

There’s a whole lot more.  Follow this link for all of the details.

Sort of funny how the lawsuit comes to light right as season 2 is about to get back under way.
