This Thursday, January 20, 2011, Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles launches its first Comic Book-of-the-Month Club event, which is focusing entirely on The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman. Learn more about the books, the TV series, or just geek-out with a bunch of fellow Walking Dead-Heads. Best of all? It’s also online for those of you who don’t live near LA!
Want to know more? Then read on!
From the Press Release:
Have you ever wanted to get into comic books but have no interest in superheroes and/or mutants? Or perhaps you have never thought about getting into comics but happen to be a huge fan of all things horror/zombie/gruesome. Or you are already obsessed with The Walking Dead and just looking for people to geek out with about the book and series.
At the meet-up (details below) we will discuss the book series from the beginning and why it might be the perfect book for you to pick up if you’ve been toying with the idea of getting into graphic novels but haven’t taken the plunge.
Jenna Busch (Moviefone Minute, Huffington Post, Cineboobs) will be leading a discussion on the hit AMC program show based on the series, followed by a discussion lead by Stephanie Wooten from Nerds in Babeland on the best-selling comic book series. In between the discussions we will even provide a zombie make-up tutorial by Jackie Bagwell, an owner and organizer of Ashtoberfest (a week-long festival dedicated to all-things zombie).
Also? Free beer! And all attendees will get 20% off all purchases at Meltdown Comics during the duration of the event.
