SDCC 2013: ‘The Walking Dead’ Will Celebrate 10th Anniversary at SDCC
This year brings the tenth anniversary of creator/writer Robert Kirkman’s epic comic series, The Walking Dead. To commemorate the milestone, Skybound is partnering with Future US to create a slew of unique user experiences at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con.
Among these epic experiences will be a booth featuring the debut of a custom 2013 Hyundai Veloster — also known as the “Zombie Survival Machine”.
In addition, booth visitors will have access to WalkingDeadChopShop.com, beginning on Wednesday, July 17. The web-based configuration tool will allow each fan to create his or her own unique Zombie Survival Machine design. Users’ designs will be entered into a contest, and the eventual winner’s design will be built and presented in October at the New York Comic-Con!
“I had so much fun designing last year’s Zombie Survival Machine that I wanted to invite fans of The Walking Dead to share that experience and see their vision come to life at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con,” Kirkman remarked. “It’s hard to believe the growth and expansion The Walking Dead has undergone since I began writing the comic 10 years ago. This entire event is a thank you to fans of The Walking Dead universe.”
Other features available at the Future US booth will include zombie costume contests and makeup station, celebrity signings, Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead video game, and a variety of fan-centric social media events.
The Walking Dead had a huge presence at the 2012 Comic-Con, and it looks like this year’s TWD 10th anniversary celebration promises to bring even more amazing moments for fans of the comics and the AMC TV series.
