There’s no question … the crown jewel for horror fans at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con is AMC’s booth for “The Walking Dead”. There’s just so much to see, including some new character posters and a new giveaway poster illustrated by Drew Struzan that will be handed out to fans during the official Comic-Con signing for the show.
If you’ll be at San Diego Comic-Con this week, be sure to stop by their booth (#3721), which recreates a scene from the pilot episode, and tell them how much you’re looking forward to the series premiere. Attendees can either watch zombie footage playing on nearby televisions or use touch-screen monitors to “zombify” themselves. Also at the booth, staff will be distributing free swag like postcards, buttons and other goodies.
On Friday, July 23, from 4:00 to 4:45 PM, Frank Darabont will be at the booth to sign posters. Prior to that, from 11:30 am-12:30 pm in Room 6BCF is the “Walking Dead” panel with Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal, Sarah Wayne Callies, Laurie Holden, Emma Bell, series creator/director/executive producer Frank Darabont, executive producer Gale Anne Hurd, executive producer/creator of the original comic Robert Kirkman, makeup artist Greg Nicotero, and Joel Stillerman (AMC’s senior VP).
“The Walking Dead” is based on Robert Kirkman’s popular comic series. It chronicles the months and years following a zombie apocalypse. Frank Darabont is the project’s writer, director of the pilot, and exec producer with Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert also exec producing. KNB will be handling the effects, and Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey DeMunn, IronE Singleton, Sarah Wayne Callies, Laurie Holden, Chandler Riggs, Steven Yeun, Michael Rooker, Emma Bell, Adrian Kali Turner, Linds Edwards, Keith Allen Hayes, and Jim Colemanare are all set to star.
