The world just can't get enough of Robert Kirkman right now.
Beginning in early 2011, Thomas Dunne books, an imprint of St. Martins Press, will release the first of three books taking place inside the Walking Dead "universe". Kirkman will be overseeing the outlines, and will undoubtedly be providing his fatherly touch, but thriller veteran Jay Bonansinga (Twisted, Frozen) will be taking over writing duties.
