Special Guests at the Cryptozoic Comic-Con Store

By Mike Rosenberg

San Diego Comic-Con takes place next week, and in addition to the variety of awesome activities going on, we’ve got a full lineup of special guests visiting the Cryptozoic Comic-Con Store all week that you won't want to miss!

On Thursday, July 12, Robert Kirkman, the creator of The Walking Dead™, will be at the Cryptozoic Comic-Con Store signing autographs from noon until 1 pm. Stop by, bring your copy of The Walking Dead Board Game (or pick one up while you're at the store), or pick up some boosters of The Walking Dead Comic Trading Cards (available for the first time at Comic-Con!), and get a chance to meet the creator of the hit zombie survival series.

On Friday, July 13, the creative team behind The Lookouts comic book will be special guests at our special preview event, which takes place from 8 pm until 11 pm. Pick up a Limited Edition copy of The Lookouts Issue #1 and get it signed by creators Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins, along with story developer Cory Jones and writer Ben McCool. Get a chance to chat with the people who created this incredible story, and pick up a copy of the comic before anyone else!

On Saturday, July 14, actress Lauren Cohan and actor Steven Yeun from The Walking Dead television series will be at the Cryptozoic Comic-Con Store. Known for their roles as Maggie and Glenn respectively on The Walking Dead, Cohan has also appeared as Rose on The Vampire Diaries, and Yeun has appeared on The Big Bang Theory as Sheldon's former roommate Sebastian. Cohan will be at the store from 11 am until 1 pm, and Yeun will be at the store from 2 pm until 4 pm, signing autographs and chatting with fans. If you've got any The Walking Dead collectibles, this would be the perfect opportunity for you to get some special autographs to make your collection really stand out!
