Walker Stalker Con is a convention that takes place in various cities throughout the year, and is reputed to be one of the best cons ever for zombie fans. Smaller than Comic-Con, and of course more specialized, it’s said to offer much better access to all of the special guests, as well as a chance to hang out with others of your (our) kind. Special guests at the next Walker Stalker Con, which is scheduled for the end of this month in San Francisco, include current and former stars of The Walking Dead, like David Morrissey (the Governor), Jon Bernthal (Shane), and Steven Yeun (Glenn) as well as Robert Englund, Freddy from the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise.
But wait, there’s more: a genre mashup of sorts has been announced. Whovians, meet the Walker Stalkers. Walker Stalkers, meet the Whovians. Of course I know that a good number of you are both. If you’re only one or the other, however, the good news continues. Matt Smith and Karen Gillan will be attending both the San Francisco Walker Stalker Con, and a separate connected event, “Night of the Doctor,” that does not require admission to the zombie con. You can even get tickets to sit in the first two rows. While supplies last, of course. Oooo!
Here are the deets:
