Skybound Entertainment is teaming up with Amazon for another Image Comics adaptation, this time for Port of Earth by Zack Kaplan (Eclipse) and Andrea Mutti (Rebels).
The Top Cow sci-fi series is currently in development for a television series with Kaplan along with Top Cow executives Marc Silvestri and Matt Hawkins attached as executive producers. The project is Skybound's second Image Comics series in development with Amazon, with an animated series based on Invincible by Robert Kirkman, Cory Walker and Ryan Ottley also in development.
Kaplan and Mutti's series takes place in the near-future with an extraterrestrial conglomerate approaching the citizens of Earth not to conquer but to make a bargain: Open the planet as a spaceport for alien travelers in exchange for advanced technology. After one alien leaves the designated port and begins killing humans, the interstellar politics of the deal begin to grow tense as the hunt for the killer intensifies.
The comic book series is the third one co-created by Kaplan to currently be in development for television. His first Top Cow series, Eclipse, which he co-created with Giovanni Timpano is also in development with Skybound Entertainment. Additionally, Lost City Explorers, co-created by Kaplan and Alvaro Sarraseca with Aftershock Comics, is in development for television with Universal and Aftershock Entertainment.
Port of Earth is created by Zack Kaplan and Andrea Mutti. The series returns with its ninth issue on April 17 from Image Comics and Top Cow Productions.
