Two weeks from today, Chicago will be invaded by zombies. Why not join them and party the whole weekend?

In the tradition of "Star Trek", "Star Wars", and "Harry Potter"-themed conventions, Walker Stalker Con will celebrate all things undead with an emphasis on both the TV and print incarnations of "The Walking Dead"!

Among the cast members attending are...

  • Steven Yeun (Glenn)
  • Lauren Cohan (Maggie)
  • Emily Kinney (Beth)
  • IronE Singleton (T-Dog)
  • Michael Cudlitz (Abraham)
  • Alanna Masterson (Tara)
  • Sonequa Martin-Green (Sasha)
  • plus several others TBA

Providing behind-the-scenes production secrets, Greg Nicotero (Executive Producer/Director/SFX Expert) and Eulyn Womble (Costume Designer) will detail how they create the on-screen terrors we all love.

From the print side, Jay Bonansinga, co-author of "The Walking Dead" novels will discuss how he and "Walking Dead" co-creator Robert Kirkman expand the comic's back story in prose form.

In addition, classic horror movie icons Howard Sherman (Bub from the original "Day of the Dead"), Chris Durand (Michael Meyers, "Halloween H20"), and Kane Hodder (Jason, "Friday the 13th" series) will be lurking about.

Plus, there'll be discussions with the guests (along with autographs and photos with most of them), screenings of horror movies and TV shows, a Dealer's Room, an Artists' Alley, a costume contest/parade and other goodies!

Mark March 14th through 16th on your calendar (in blood, if necessary) for Walker Stalker Con at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center.

We're just dying to see you there...
