Comic book writer, screenwriter, and producer Robert Kirkman is well known for co-creating The Walking Dead comic, which led to the AMC series in which he was heavily involved. He is also well known for creating many other comic stories, including Invincible, which has been adapted into an animated series that airs on Amazon Prime Video. The second season has been released in two parts and the sixth episode had some believing they were watching a Walking Dead crossover event.

This article contains spoilers for Invincible, season 2, episode 6, “It’s Not That Simple."

Episode six featured the return of Angstrom Levy, portrayed by Sterling K. Brown, in a post-credits scene. Levy is a fascinating villain who has the ability to open portals to any dimension in the multiverse. One of the worlds he encounters features zombies, and Kirkman sets the record straight: this isn't a Walking Dead crossover.

In an interview with our friends at Bam Smack Pow, Kirkman commented on the inclusion of zombies.

"No, I specifically had them speaking and saying ‘brains’ so that it would be clear that it wasn't the Walking Dead universe, but I should have done more. I should have had them shooting lasers out of their eyes or something because I think people still think it's the Walking Dead universe."
