THE PARTY: The Walking Dead: A Decade of Dead Documentary Premiere Party and Gallery Opening
THE PLACE: Pillars 37
THE DEETS: The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman was joined by his show’s cast including Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Danai Gurira, Charlie Adlard, and much more to toast to the Eisner Award-winning comic that started it all on the second night of New York Comic Con. The gallery space held not only foreign first editions of the comic from around the world but storyboards, action figures, lunch boxes, screenshots from the documentary, and props from the set including Rick Grimes’ hat, Daryl Dixon’s crossbow, as well as the intricate zombie prosthetics. The crowning glory was a customized Hyundai Santa Fe Zombie-mobile, designed by superfan Anson Kuo, to ensure your survival during the zombie apocalypse. Guests were invited to sip Jose Cuervo cocktails before posing with the resident zombie for Instagrams they wouldn’t soon forget!
