Talk about an aggressive convention schedule! Avatar Press will be setting up at tons of shows across the United States and Canada in 2012, and they're kicking off the year next week with a trip to sunny California for WonderCon (March 16-18 at the Anaheim Convention Center).
Conventions can be pretty overwhelming at times, with thousands of comic fans pouring into the hall like zombies in a Romero flick. At WonderCon, it'll be a good thing that Avatar will be bringing Max Brooks, the author of the best-selling books The Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z, to face the hordes!
Max Brooks will be signing at the Avatar booth during the weekend (Friday at 12:00pm-2:00pm, and Sunday at 11:00am-12:00pm and 1:00pm-2:00pm). Those time slots will be great opportunities to pick up a variety of ZSG and WWZ merchandise, enjoy adding his hilarious personalized messages to your autograph collection, and pick his brains about the upcoming World War Z major motion picture starring Brad Pitt (although we'd advise against the "picking his brains" part literally, since he is highly skilled at killing the undead). Also, Max will bring his fan-favorite Zombie Survival lecture to WonderCon on Sunday, March 18th, starting at noon in Room 204. Come prepared with questions… and prepared for awesomeness!
Avatar Press will also be offering a handful of variant comics exclusive to the show. First, from David Lapham and Gabriel Andrade, Avatar presents the WonderCon exclusive edition of the chilling werewolf epic: Ferals #1 WonderCon Edition. Also, from their sister company Boundless Comics, they will offer the Lady Death #14 WonderCon Daily Event series: individual Friday, Saturday, and Sunday editions, each with a unique cover design, plus a complete set of all five covers (the three daily variants, plus the rare VIP and Retailer Bonus editions).
