In two short years, Zack Kaplan has emerged as a breakout voice in comics. His debut sci-fi series, ECLIPSE, blazed onto the scene in fall of 2016 to an amazing response, now continues as an ongoing series and is currently being developed into a TV show by Robert Kirkman (Walking Dead) and Skybound Entertainment. Zack’s sophomore comic effort, PORT OF EARTH, also published by Image Comics and Top Cow Productions, came out in November 2017, and is in secret TV development. Zack‘s latest new series, THE LOST CITY EXPLORERS, was released this summer from Aftershock Comics and has been bought by Universal TV for TV development. Zack taught screenwriting at the International Academy of Film and TV, located in the Philippines, and he also writes film and television.
