    Walker Stalker Con 2013 Con Report

    November 4, 2013 by  
    Filed under Con Reports and Photos, Georgia, Top Stories

    The first ever, and hopefully annual, Walker Stalker Convention was held this weekend (Nov. 1-3, 2013) at the Atlanta Convention Center at Americasmart in Atlanta, Georgia. The convention was the brain child of Walker Stalker podcast hosts, Eric Nordhoff and James Frazier. The WSC brought in around 10,000 visitors. Not too shabby for their first at-bat.

    I would like to give a big round of applause to everyone who had a hand in this event. There were a few minor hiccups, as can be expected at any convention. I heard a few grumblings about the lack of limitations at autograph tables (apparently, a guest at Andrew Lincoln’s table had an obscene amount of items to be signed. A limit was later enforced as a result), and also some comments about the celebrity panels being conducted in a different building. Celebrity schedule conflicts are unpredictable and not the fault of any convention personnel. It’s all in how they handle such surprises. Guests like Emma Bell and Lauren Cohan, unfortunately had to cancel. Norman Reedus had to cut his Sunday appearance in half. And Andrew Lincoln could only appear for one day. However, Lincoln and Reedus stayed long after they were supposed to on Saturday evening, and didn’t leave until all fans in their queue had received and autograph. Class acts! Personal con experience and all things considered, those were indeed minor hiccups.

    From the creators to the volunteers, you did a fantastic job this weekend, and I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to be a part of it. On behalf of Convention Scene and Walker Bait Productions, job very well done! Thank you!

    The WSC featured more than 40 celebrity guests, including almost every member of The Walking Dead cast, as well as nearly 100 vendor booths. The vendors ranged from comic and toy collectibles to an on-site tattoo shop. A special VIP Meet & Greet and Zombie Bash were held on Saturday evening, along with a private concert featuring Emily Kinney, “Beth” on The Walking Dead. The WSC even provided a “Virtual Queue” for those who did not want to spend all day standing in line for autographs. You simply checked in at the Virtual Queue booth and when it was time for you to actually get into a celebrity line, a member of the volunteer staff would send you a text message. The concept reminded me of the “Fast Pass” access at Walt Disney World. Still, I chose to get the full experience, replete with eavesdropping and people watching, by standing in every line I could. Even with the wait time, the volunteers kept everything moving smoothly and efficiently. No complaints here.

    Each celebrity guest that I spoke to had very positive things to say about WSC. “This Con is unique because of the focus on The Walking Dead and zombie culture,” said actor Daniel Thomas May [“Allen” on The Walking Dead]. “There are just so many cast members and spectacular fans. You know, we use the hashtag on Twitter #TWDFamily for the The Walking Dead Family, and that’s what this whole weekend has felt like. We’re all just a bunch of family and it’s so great.”

    Andrew “Drone” Cossan, who has done illustrations for LUCASFILM and TOPPS, was on hand at Marc Draven’s Ink-Fusion Tattoo booth creating custom designs for guests looking for a permanent WSC souvenir. “I can crank out some pieces very quickly,” he said. “It’s easy to make con fans happy because you are giving them a character that they like and want.” When asked about his WSC experience, Drone said, “It’s been quite a trip. Compared to other cons, I am very impressed with the overall organization. They’ve been very accommodating and good about checking in on vendors and talent to make sure that everything is going smoothly and our needs are being met. And that’s a good sign.”

    While I did have an opportunity to meet Greg Nicotero, one of my personal highlights was speaking with a different member of zombie culture royalty, the lovely Judith O’Dea. For the uninitiated, O’Dea portrayed the iconic “Barbara” in the film that started it all, George Romero’s 1968 classic The Night of the Living Dead. “I have had an absolute ball,” she gushed. “At the time, none of us who were a part of the film had any idea the effect it would have [on pop culture] and I am just in awe that we really were, and are a part of what has become The Walking Dead. And I would like to say how grateful I am to the fans for their long time support.  It’s hard to believe, but it is all so exciting.”

    Crissy Thomas, founder of fan site BitchinDixons.com met up with other Bitchin Dixon members who had traveled from near and far to meet Norman Reedus, “Daryl” on The Walking Dead. And for those members who couldn’t make the journey, Crissy collected gifts, cards, and letters that they had shipped to her and presented them to Reedus on their behalf. Thomas hopes to have even more Bitchin Dixons attend next year.

    Did you hear that, Walker Stalkers? The fans and guests have spoken. It’s time to start preparing for next fall! Congratulations.

    CA – The Walking Dead 100 Exhibit

    Comments Off on 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

    There will be three Image Comics panels in Emerald City Comicon’s programming, each promising to be a lively discussion.

    Putting the “Graphic” in Graphic Novels
    It’s time to talk about sex and violence! Black Kiss II, Butcher Baker, Sex, Saga, Happy!, Multiple Warheads, Sex Criminals: these comics are definitely not for kids. Image Comics creators who aren’t shying away from adult situations talk about creating comics for grown-ups. Is there really such a thing as “gratuitous”? What’s it like to be banned in the UK and Canada? Join some of comics most respected creators for an eye-opening conversation. Panelists: Joe Casey (Butcher Baker the Righteous Maker, Sex), Howard Chaykin (Black Kiss II), Matt Fraction (Sex Criminals), Brandon Graham (Multiple Warheads), Fiona Staples (Saga) FRIDAY 5 PM Hall B

    Skybound: On the Rise
    There’s no limit on what to expect from Skybound, Robert Kirkman’s imprint at Image Comics. The Walking Dead continues to dominate comics and television, Invincible just hit its historic 100th issue, and new series are on the horizon. Join Charlie Adlard, Ryan Ottley and more as they discuss what’s in Skybound’s future.
    Panelists: Ryan Ottley, Charlie Adlard, Phil Hester, Josh Williamson SATURDAY 1 PM Hall B

    Wondrous Worlds, Fractured Futures: Speculative Fiction and Image Comics
    With the unlimited potential of comics, there is perhaps no better medium for speculative fiction than comics. Limited only by their imaginations, Image Comics creators have been creating far-flung universes and dystopian futures where science, fantasy, and technology explode in rich possibilities. Find out why they choose science fiction, how they build worlds, and what inspires them. Panelists: Duffy Boudreau (BlackAcre), Joe Harris (Great Pacific), Fiona Staples (Saga), Richard Starkings (Elephantmen), Kurtis J.
