Vampires may be big in Forks, thanks to Twilight, but Seattle’s obviously a city for zombie loyalists. This past July, we broke the Guinness World Record for “Largest Zombie Walk.” For the second time. To reward our devotion, the Grand Poobah of zombie films, director George A. Romero, will be in attendance at the inaugural ZomBcon, a convention that aims to do for zombie fans what ComiCon does for anime nerds. But instead of, say, Stan Lee, zombie royalty like Bruce Campbell, Max Brooks (author of World War Z), Day of the Dead cast members, and twisted author Chuck Palahniuk will be in attendance for classic and contemporary zombie film screenings (including a special 25th anniversary screening of Day of the Dead), workshops, panels, and all the brains you can stomach.
