We’re heading across to San Diego to join the ultimate geek party (11-15 July). SFX and Comic Heroes will be among the Future magazines using the opportunity to celebrate The Walking Dead. Visit the Future booth to enjoy all this undead mayhem:
THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE!!!
We’re celebrating The Walking Dead 100th issue with a party in The Zombie Survival Machine.
All day Wednesday to Sunday; official unveiling on Wednesday at 5pm, with Robert Kirkman and Gary Castillo.
What does a car need to survive a zombie apocalypse?
A front-end custom zombie cow-catcher with spikes, slatted armoured window coverings, a roof hatch to allow passengers to shoot at walkers, an electric rear trunk to house weapons, all‐terrain tires, weapons storage compartments. Least but not least, it must also have a CB radio/PA system.
Design Craft have custom fabricated a Hyundai Elantra Coupe into the ultimate Zombie Survival Machine. Anyone will have a chance to get on board, interact and take photos with the car, and prepare themselves for the apocalypse.
Future is also giving away a brand new 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT car, custom wrapped with The Walking Dead graphics at the Hyundai Sweepstakes Kiosk. US entrants only, folks. The winner will be announced on the last day of the show, and we’ll give away limited edition Walking Dead buttons to some lucky entrants. More info on www.hyundaiundead.com and comics site www.skybound.com.
Calling all flesh-eating, gore-loving, gear-wearing zombie eccentrics out there! For your chance to win amazing signed Walking Dead goodies and enhance your status in the zombie circles, register at the Future booth from Wednesday to Friday. We will look for zombiesque creativity, production and crowd response. Your chums Adrian Hill and Dave Bradley will be on the judging panel so come and say hello!
Thursday to Saturday, 9am-7pm
This is your chance to finally find out how hot you would look as a zombie, in case you didn’t survive the deadly attacks. Liza Macawili, a professional make-up artist, will transform anyone into a living walking dead in just 15 minutes.
Walkers Target Practice
All day, Wednesday to Sunday
In the event of a zombie apocalypse, you will need to know how to shoot ‘em guns! Test your skills by shooting NERF guns at a zombie cut out, and take part in contests to win limited edition zombie swag and other special prizes.
