Zombie makeover: get zombified by professional make-up artists
Charlie Adlard, Sean Philips, Tyler Kirkham, and Lots More Contribute to “Dead Cold” for F.A.C.T.S. 2012
Gent, Belgium, Oktober 01, 2012
Zombie-guests galore at F.A.C.T.S. 2012 and now also a Zombie-Comic!
While the Mayan civilization has proclaimed 2012 to be the end of the world, F.A.C.T.S. found it appropriate to invite “zombie-guests” for October 20-21, 2012 and to celebrate the event even more F.A.C.T.S. has developed a ZOMBIE-COMIC with the help of the artists invited to the show!
“I really do not care much about this heralded END OF THE WORLD so inviting Zombies – or rather guests in movie and comics, who have something to do with the zombie-phenomena – is entirely making sense to me, in a ‘living life on the edge’ kinda way”, said Emmanuel van Melkebeke, F.A.C.T.S. Convention Director. “and this year we have something amazing as many artists have supported the idea to publish a Zombie Comic with all profit going to charity!”
Artists included are Sean Philips, Paul Duffield, Dean Yeagle, Colin Wilson, Tyler Kirkham, Lectrr, Romano Molenaar, Louis & Lamirand, XA, Emmanuel Nhieu, Popescu, Kristof Spaey & Sophian Cholet.
The cover will be provided by Guest Of Honor Charlie Adlard, who also provided an introduction as well as picked Greenpeace as beneficiary to the proceedings of this special edition, called “Dead Cold… zombie art”.
F.A.C.T.S Convention is thé signature pop culture event of the Benelux, presenting guests and programming to cater for the top segments of the comics, anime, sci-fi, film, TV, and gaming industries.
Entering its 22th edition, F.A.C.T.S. is expected to draw over 21,000+ attendees to its October 21-22, 2012 convention held at the Gent Flanders Expo Convention Center located in Gent, Belgium.
The show will sport 3,000 extra meters compared to its last edition and will now have 15,000 square meters. FACTS will host over a mile of dealers of toys, comics, movie merchandise, fantasy merchandise, manga and will see 2,500+ cosplayers and a cosplay competition, life size props, model kit exhibitions, an entire fan-village, a Japanese Village, a huge game zone with dozens of consoles, as well as loads of surprises, to brighten up the already amazing venue!
