The zombie revolution is among us. Comic-Con 2012, is an appropriate time to channel your inner flesh-eating zombie. In two months, all you zombies can reveal yourselves at last, just stay away from this dumpy little building in beautiful downtown Culver City. This is our home, you stay far away ghastly ghouls.
“The Walking Dead Escape” is a zombie obstacle course where your fate will be decided as a ‘Survivor’, ‘Walker’, or victim…we mean spectator. As the Comic-Con’s first major event, find out what’s in store for your future if you should happen to be one of the lucky ones to “escape” in the Walking Dead Escape.
As part of this zombie rendezvous, survivors will climb, crawl, hide and slide in an attempt to avoid the horde of Walkers. If and only if, they reach the decontamination zone, it will be determined if they have been infected or not. Fun times! There is no race element to the challenge, but Survivors are advised to move quickly. In other words you better hurry the hell up. Run for your lives!

PETCO Park – home of baseball’s San Diego Padres who at this point in the season could too be considered walking dead – will host the event that marks and celebrates the 100th issue of the Walking Dead comic, published on July 11th.
“Our fans have been reading about it, watching it and now they get to live it with The Walking Dead Escape,” said Walking Dead comic creator and Walking Dead TV show producer Robert Kirkman, via a press release on his SkyBound.com website.
