Join Executive Producer Bryan Konietzko and Co-Executive Producer Joaquim Dos Santos at New York Comic Con on Saturday October 12, 2013 at 11am as they pull back the curtain to reveal sneak peeks of what’s to come in Legend of Korra Book 2: Spirits. Exclusive artwork, never-before-seen footage, and a discussion with special guests from the incredible “The Legend of Korra“ voice cast will be featured! Moderated by Bryan Konietzko.
Konietzko says on his Tumblr: “It’s just like San Diego Comic-Con, minus the hyphen! It has been a long time since we made it out to a convention other than SDCC, and we know that fact bums out a lot of non-SoCal/SoCal-accessible fans. We wish that we could venture out more, but even just prepping for and visiting San Diego once a year takes a lot of time out of our jam-packed production schedule, so traveling even further for conventions is usually not an option. But we’re going to make it happen anyway for NYCC, and we’re really looking forward to it!
Unfortunately Mike can’t make it, but Joaquim and I will be joined by some special guests at the panel Saturday, October 12th at 11:00 am. Lots of cool stuff in the works for the presentation. We’re putting together a signing on that Saturday too, so I’ll update with more info when I have it.
See you East Coasters soon!“
Location: Empire Stage 1-E Presented By: Arizona Beverage Co.

The Walking Dead Escape: San Diego, Skybound & AMC Join Forces with The Walking Dead Executive Producer Greg Nicotero
Nicotero and His Team Transform Participants into Zombies during Event at Petco Park July 19 & 20
SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Walking Dead Escape: San Diego, Skybound, Robert Kirkman’s imprint at Image Comics, and AMC announced they are joining forces with KNB EFX Group, Inc. and its founder Greg Nicotero to serve as the Special Effects Make-up designer for the zombies featured in this one of a kind obstacle course. In addition to The Walking Dead, Nicotero is the force behind the Special Effects Make-up for TV shows and Movies such as Django Unchained, Sin City 2, Machete Kills, Breaking Bad, Kill Bill,Predators, Transformers, Land of the Dead and Army of Darkness.

Founded in 1988, they have become one of the most prolific Special Make-up Effects Studios in Hollywood. Greg and his KNB EFX make-up artists provided the zombie transformations through its award-winning make-up artistry last summer at The Walking Dead Escape: San Diego event during San Diego Comic-Con.
The Walking Dead Escape allows fans to live out the events from the groundbreaking, Emmy-award winning and top-rated AMC series, which is based on Robert Kirkman’s Eisner Award-winning best selling The Walking Dead graphic novels and comic book series.
There are three ways to participate in this epic adventure. Participants can be a Survivor and race through the zombie infested evacuation zone; a Walker who becomes one of the undead, embracing the inevitable; or a Spectator who watches the apocalypse from sidelines at the Escape Party. The KNB EFX team will transform those who sign up to be Walkers into the most terrifying zombies to grace San Diego. Registration is now open at www.TheWalkingDeadEscape.com.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to have Greg and his KNB EFX team on board once again for The Walking Dead Escape in San Diego,” said event producer Liam Brenner. “People who sign up to be Walkers will have the opportunity to be completely transformed into zombies by make-up artists who have used their talents creating walkers for the show over the last 4 seasons. It’s really a chance of a lifetime!”
Survivors will climb, crawl and slide in an effort to avoid confrontation by hordes of Walkers, while achieving the ultimate adventure on The Walking Dead-themed obstacle course. The Walking Dead Escape is not a race, and Survivors are not timed, but the end is near, and they must move swiftly. If they’re lucky, Survivors will reach the decontamination zone at the end where it will be determined if they have been infected.
