This week, we spotlight Robert Kirkman’s excellent supernatural horror series Outcast, now also a must-watch television show on Cinemax.

Outcast

Outcast is an ongoing comic book series created by writer Robert Kirkman (creator of The Walking Dead) and artist Paul Azaceta.

The story revolves around Kyle Barnes, his life’s history revolving around friends and family members suffering from demonic possession, and how he is the key to freeing their souls from the grip of the devil.

Being such a great idea, Kirkman made mention of the soon-to-be graphic novel at a party to a television producer and had the story’s rights bought immediately. This has brought us a show of the same name, currently airing on Cinemax, which many people have yet to see but absolutely should.

The art by Azaceta is truly breathtaking and a massive draw in for the book. This, mixed with Kirkman’s brilliant storytelling, creates another instant classic on a fan favorite horror sub genre — a new and unique twist on the modern manner of exorcising demons. Click here to read Outcast online.
