Now that The Walking Dead has concluded, Charlie Adlard, who drew the series from #7 on, says he wants to move on to projects that aren't "zombie related" - so much so, he says he turned down an offer from Marvel Comics because it was zombie-centric.

"It was, shall we say, zombie-related and the one thing I don't want to do, for obvious reasons, is anything zombie-related," Adlard told BBC News of the unnamed Marvel story he says he turned down. "I want to do other stuff, I want to prove my versatility. People just think because you've drawn zombies for 15 years, you want to carry on drawing zombies."

But Adlard does have another supernatural-oriented project lined up - a story with his White Death writer Robbie Morrison focusing on a fictionalized version of the historical German sage and mystic Cornelius Agrippa.

Adlard didn't elucidate a proposed timeframe or format for the story, tentatively titled Heretic.
