Annapolis Comic-Con Returns in June 2013 with Guests from The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead Annapolis

Press Release:

The Annapolis Comic-Con Returns with Guests from AMC’s ‘Walking Dead’

On Saturday, June 29, the Annapolis Comic-Con returns to the Pip Moyer Community Center in Annapolis. The event, sponsored by Third Eye Comics, takes place from 10am to 6pm.

Joining the array of vendors and artists this year will be Daniel Thomas May and Travis Love, two actors from Season 3 of AMC’s The Walking Dead. They will be signing autographs, taking photos, and might even dish some inside info about filming the hit TV show.

Events during the day include prize drawings, a costume contest, and a course on Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse with local expert Daniel Palmer. He says it will be a more advanced course than the one he taught in 2012, adding “Assuming you’ve survived the zombies for a few months, you’ll have to start dealing with a world that lacks civilization, where the living may become more dangerous than the undead!”

Staying true to their roots as a family-friendly comic-con, the Annapolis Comic-Con will have art stations open all day for kids to draw and color, a kids’ costume contest, and an interactive art game show, Doodle! Scribble! Draw! “It’s a combination of Jeopardy!, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Pictionary, and the doodles that you draw in your notebook when you’re bored!” says host Mark Mariano, who draws his own comic books, and also worked on the Adventure Time comic book.

This will also be the debut of the first-ever Kids’ Artist Alley, with local children selling their own artwork, and trading comics and toys. It’s intended to teach them about the value of their artwork, the value of hard work, and maybe even how to count change!

CA – The Walking Dead 100 Exhibit

wd100

Sina Grace, Todd Nauck, and Jason Reeves appear at the Gusford Gallery on Friday May 31, 2013 from 6:00 – 9:00 PM!

Press Release:

Robert Kirkman’s Eisner Award-winning comic book series, The Walking Dead, celebrated its 100th issue last July and the issue became the top-selling comic book of 2012. Last year, Skybound and The Hero Initiative gave the comic industry’s leading artists and visionaries over 100 blank covered issues of The Walking Dead #100 to create a set of remarkable artwork originals to commemorate this special issue of the groundbreaking Skybound/Image Comics series. Regular The Walking Dead series artist Charlie Adlard is among the contributors and now, for the first and last time ever, all 106 of the original sketch covers will be on display together — but for one night only. All of the artists came together to benefit The Hero Initiative, the comic book industry’s non-profit corporation helping comic creators in need. While The Walking Dead continues to break records in every form of media, it all started with the comic book and that will be celebrated at this special gallery show and auction.

To enhance the experience for attendees, The Walking Dead #100 original sketch cover artists Sina Grace (Not My Bag), Todd Nauck (Invincible Universe), and Jason Reeves (F-OO Fighters) will be in attendance to answer questions about their covers.

On Friday, May 31 at GUSFORD | los angeles from 6:00 – 9:00 PM, 7016 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles, all comic fans are welcome to witness history in the making and in some cases, take a piece of it home. In addition to the once-in-a-lifetime experience of seeing all The Walking Dead #100 original sketch covers together for the first time ever, four covers will also be auctioned to benefit the industry’s favorite charity at the same time. Two covers will be auctioned via eBay during the course of the event, and attendees can bid via their own mobile devices. Another cover will be auctioned live, on-site for attendees. And in an unprecedented move, a fourth cover will be created live that night by artist Todd Nauck for auction during the event. All attendees at the GUSFORD event can watch Nauck, a comic master, live at work during the event as he creates the final and 106th original sketch cover.

The remainder of the covers will be auctioned off via eBay starting June 4.

Amazingly enough, there is no cost to attend this comic lover’s dream event. It’s free and open to the public but if you feel like more celebrating, there will also be a cash bar in place and zombie-styled treats courtesy of event collaborator and neighboring shop, Golden Apple Comics. We want you to save your money to bid on the covers instead of an entrance fee. The event is a gift from GUSFORD | los angeles and Skybound to benefit The Hero Initiative and the fine work they do as the first-ever federally chartered non-profit corporation dedicated to helping comic legends in need and providing a safety net for them.

For information on the event and auction, please visit www.heroinitiative.org or call 626/676-6354. You can always find information for everything related to The Walking Dead at www.Skybound.com and www.TheWalkingDead.com
