Writer Robert Kirkman is a titan of two industries, thanks to his co-creating of the Walking Dead comic books and his exec-producing of AMC’s hugely successful adaptation of the same. The Skybound co-founder’s other credits include writing the comics Invincible, Super Dinosaur, and Outcast, which itself was adapted into a TV show by Cinemax.

But will he ever write anything as good as Rick and Morty? Not if he lives for a thousand years! To be clear, this is not necessarily our opinion, but rather that of the Walking Dead scribe himself.

“If I live a thousand years I will never do anything as good as Rick and Morty,” Kirkman wrote on Twitter early Tuesday morning about the show, which was created by Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland.

Kirkman was presumably moved to express this sentiment by the return of Adult Swim‘s animated science fiction-comedy, whose third season premiered on Sunday. Watch a trailer for Rick and Morty, above.
