AMC is doubling down on Robert Kirkman as the cable network is reteaming with “The Walking Dead” creator/executive producer to develop his newest comic, “Thief of Thieves,” The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively. The Image Comics/Skybound title revolves around a master thief with a dual identity who, while struggling to quit the business, opts to steal only what has already been stolen. Released in February, the first two issues “Thief of Thieves” each sold out on their respective release dates; issue No. 3 is in stores Wednesday. Nick Spencer penned the first arc of “Thief of Thieves,” with Kirkman on board as head writer to oversee the series.

Lastly, we’ve landed the below images and posters for Howling, the Korean action-drama featuring a killer wolf. Directed by Yoo Ha, Howling stars Lee Na-young, Song Kang-ho, Jang In-ho, Kim Dong-yoon, Nam Bo-ra, and Kim Kyeong-ryong. “An action drama, where the truth of a ‘wolfdog’ related to the case reveals itself to ‘Sang-gil’, a veteran crime squad detective who is investigating a series of murders through natural combustion, and newly appointed female detective ‘Eun-young’ (Lee Na-young).” What the hell does that mean? Thanks to Avery for the heads up.
