Comics In #YourImage: Adventure
10/6/2016 at 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM, in 1A21

Charles Soule (CURSE WORDS), Greg Rucka (BLACK MAGICK), Simon Spurrier (CRY HAVOC), Caspar Wijngaard (LIMBO), and Joe Harris & Martin Morazzo (SNOWFALL) are ready and willing to break down how they create perfect comic book adventures, versatile heroes, and chilling villains in complex stories that demand a lot from the reader, but have a huge payoff.

Comics In #YourImage: Character
10/7/2016 at 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM, in Room 1A24

A high concept for a comic is a great invitation, but great characters are what make you want to stay with the book. Characters that you empathize with or are cooler than cool are captivating. Sana Takeda (MONSTRESS), Steven T. Seagle (CAMP MIDNIGHT), Rod Reis (HADRIAN’S WALL), Donny Cates (TBA), and Jason Hurley & Jeremy Haun (THE BEAUTY) are going to dig deep into characters, and how it’s not as easy as a cool outfit and a snappy name.

Comics In #YourImage: Storytelling
10/8/2016 at 12:15 PM – 1:15 PM, in 1A21

You can’t judge a comic solely based on what happens to the characters in it. You have to look at how things happen, what the story looks like, and a bunch of other little tiny things that make comics one of the most vibrant storytelling mediums around. Karen Berger (SURGEON X), Gabriel Hardman (INVISIBLE REPUBLIC), Declan Shalvey (INJECTION), Marjorie Liu (MONSTRESS), Scott Snyder (WYTCHES), and Bryan Hill (ROMULUS) are some of the best storytellers in the business. In addition, check out an EXCLUSIVE preview of the upcoming OFFICER DOWNE film at the end of the panel, based on the graphic novel by Joe Casey & Chris Burnham!

Comics In #YourImage: Spectacle
10/9/2016 at 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM, in 1A24

What is it that excites you about comics, that makes Wednesday the best day of the week? Whether it’s the idea of seeing a new world through someone else’s eyes or getting a look at reality from another angle, we’ve got you covered. Our panelists, including Jim Zub & Djibril Morissette-Phan (GLITTERBOMB), Brenden Fletcher, Cameron Stewart, & Babs Tarr (MOTORCRUSH), Jason Latour (SOUTHERN BASTARDS), and Andrew MacLean(HEADLOPPER) know what you want and aim to please.

Living Dead Weekend 2016 Celebrates Film Origins of the Zombie

October 5, 2016 by  
Filed under Convention News, Horror, Pennsylvania

Living Dead Weekend

Press Release:


Evans City, September 30, 2016: Evans City, PA, the home of the modern zombie in pop-culture will host the annual Living Dead Weekend on October 14, 15 and 16. This title is given to this Pennsylvania bureau because of it’s ties to the 1968 classic film, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. Evans City served as the filming location of the infamous George A. Romero’s debut feature film about a night where the recently dead have returned to life and upset the human way of life. Now 48 years old, the film has had immeasurable influence on pop-culture and has given the world a new monster archetype.

This annual event has grown considerably and has become Evans City’s largest local festival. This event will feature a full weekend of events including movie screenings in the nearby Strand Theater, over 30 celebrities from the Romero films signing autographs, seminars and discussion panels, makeup and special FX booths, and over 100 vendors of art, crafts, food, exhibits, entertainers, Halloween merchandise, zombie goods, souvenirs and apparel. Also back for its third outing within the weekend is the Sunday afternoon Pet Walk of the Living Dead, a family friendly pet and owner costumed parade around EDCO Park which includes various local pet vendors all day this year.

A highlight of this year’s Weekend is a community effort to raise funds to save EDCO Park’s swimming Pool. GHOULS FOR THE POOL is Evans’s City’s answer to the popular Scarecrow Invasion- an interactive art exhibit to fill the park with fan-made zombie scarecrows. Participants will build and design a scarecrow to decorate and add ambiance to the park for Halloween. For only $5, the core essentials are supplied and park visitors throughout the weekend will use their ideas and artistic vision to build a zombie scarecrow and plant it in the park. The goal is to fill the back yard of the park with 1000 unique zombies. For every zombie scarecrow that joins the horde, the park gets $5.00.

Everyone is invited to celebrate all things zombies and especially the film that started it all, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, where it all began, Evans City, PA. Visitors from all around the world, as far as New Zealand are expected this year. Admission is FREE, with some activities having individual ticket costs. Additional details can be found at the website

“The way Evans City has embraced its own role as a focal point of film making history, and the warmth of the community to all its many visitors has made this a truly special event,” says, Jim Krut, actor from DAWN OF THE DEAD, “As the event continues to grow, the town will continue to find itself seen through the eyes of visitors from across the country and the world.”

The Living Dead Museum is a museum and gift shop celebrating Zombies in Pop-Culture. Located in the town center of Evans City, PA, location of the original film, George A. Romero’s NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, the themed attraction takes fans through a visual history of zombies in cinema and pop-culture. Displays of props and memorabilia are woven into a presentation featuring interactive experiences, and zombie gift shopping. For more information, visit and .
