Had the pleasure this week of assisting Nerds in Babeland and Meltdown Comics plan their very first in a series of Comic Book Club discussions in their event space. Tonight marks the first installment, The Walking Dead: A Course in Zombiology. Press Release below!
Join us Thursday, January 20, 2011, at 7pm PST at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles or at nerdsinbabeland.com/chat in the discussion for our first ever Comic Book-of-the-Month club, focused entirely on The Walking Dead. Learn more about the books, the television series, or just geek-out with a bunch of fellow Walking Dead-Heads. Want to know more? Then read on!
Have you ever wanted to get into comic books but have no interest in superheroes and/or mutants? Or, perhaps you have never thought about getting into comics but happen to be a huge fan of all things horror/zombie/gruesome? Or you are already obsessed with The Walking Dead and just looking for people to geek out about the book and series with? At the meet-up, we will discuss the book series from the beginning, and why it might be the perfect book for you to pick up if you’ve been toying with the idea of getting into graphic novels but haven’t taken the plunge.
Jenna Busch (Moviefone Minute, Huffington Post, Cineboobs) will be leading a discussion on the hit AMC program show based on the series, followed by a discussion lead by Stephanie Wooten from Nerds in Babeland on the best-selling comic book series. In between the discussions we will even provide a zombie make-up tutorial by Jackie Bagwell, an owner & organizer of Ashtoberfest (a week-long festival dedicated to all-things zombie).
All attendees will get 20% off all purchases at Meltdown, Inc during the duration of the event. Can’t be there in person because you don’t live in Los Angeles? Show up to the online chat and receive a discount code good for 20% any online order placed through Meltdown Comics.
What: Comic Book-of-the-Month club.
When: Thursday, January 20, 2011 7PM PST.
Entry fee: $6.00 You’ll also have the opportunity to enter a raffle in order to win a copy of a Walking Dead graphic novel.
RAINCHECK: TWD BOOK ONE is currently out of stock from their distributor. Get 20% off if pre-purchase during the event.
Plus, just got word that there will be a Food Truck on the premises - the lovely Ahn Joo, which I DEVOURED at the LA Times Food & Wine Fest this summer. Its executive chef is Debbie from The Next Food Network Star. Yes I watched it. And yes, she was awesome.
Also, during the television discussion we will have very special guest Juan Gabriel Pareja, who played Morales in four of the six episodes of The Walking Dead season one! He will be on hand to provide a POV of what it's actually been like to be on set of the hit AMC series.
Plus - free beer & wine :).
Hope to see you there!
