Saturday is one of the biggest days at Comic-Con; therefore, I stuck to my own advice and aimed for the non-Hollywood panels. First stop that morning was the Reading with Brains – Zombie Fiction because I am a big fan of Max Brook, author of Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z. It was my favorite panel at the convention- who knew that these zombie writers would be so entertaining and hilarious?
The other panelists were Seth Grahame-Smith (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,Â Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Slayer), Walter GreatshellÂ (Xombies: Apocalypticon), Mira Grant (Feed), John Skipp (Zombies: Encounters with the Hungry Dead), Amelia Beamer (The Loving Dead), Joan Frances Turner (Dust) and Ryan Mecum (Zombie Haiku).
After the panel, I got my copy of World War Z signed. That was one of my big goal that I accomplished at the con! Yeah! Max Brooks was so awesome and nice. He even signed a comic book of Recorded Attacks for me.
