WALKER STALKER CON BRINGS MAJOR CELEBRITIES FROM ZOMBIE, HORROR AND SCI‐FI FILMS AND TV SHOWS TO BOSTON THIS JUNE!
BOSTON, MA – Walker Stalker Con, a zombie and horror themed fan‐centric convention, will be held at The Westin Boston Waterfront in Boston, MA on June 13, 14 & 15, 2014. Fan access to celebrity guests will be the primary focus of this event.
In Atlanta, GA on November 1‐3, 2013, Walker Stalker Con made its debut where it assembled more “The Walking Dead” cast members than any other convention ever before, along with other actors from zombie and horror films. The inaugural event had over 10,500 attendees. In Chicago, IL on March 14‐16, 2014, Walker Stalker Con made its second appearance as a convention and the first Walker Stalker Con of 2014. Now, Walker Stalker Con has set its sights on Boston!
With cast members from “The Walking Dead” returning to the upcoming Boston convention, along with stars from other zombie and horror films, Walker Stalker Con continues to position itself to be particularly unique.
Walker Stalker Con is the fruit of The Walker Stalkers Podcast with James & Eric (www.thewalkerstalkers.com). The podcast began with an amazing trip to Senoia, GA where James & Eric were able to view the set of The Walking Dead and meet the incredible actors from the show. As a result of this experience, a podcast began and then the idea of a convention focused around recreating that same experience with the cast and crew of the show, along with talented actors and artists from other zombie shows, movies and art.
In April 2013, James and Eric decided a podcast wasn’t enough, so they launched a Zombie, Horror and Sci‐Fi themed fan‐centric convention called Walker Stalker Con (www.WalkerStalkerCon.com). “We hope to continue this same kind of access and involvement as we did with our successful convention in Atlanta,” say James Frazier and Eric Nordhoff, hosts of the podcast. “We want fans of TV shows, films and comics in this genre to have a chance to have real interaction with their favorite celebrities – not just a 10 second hand shake and photo opp.”
Walker Stalker Con is not just a convention. It is a fan meet‐up and an opportunity for each guest to come away feeling like they’ve had an amazing experience and became part of a greater community of zombie lovers! Walker Stalker Con is three days of events, panels, and experiences that zombie fans won’t find anywhere else!

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!
