Last weekend a number of zombie experts joined Matt Mogk, author and founder of the Zombie Research Society, for an exclusive panel at Stan Lee’s Comikaze in Los Angeles. “Zombies! Everything You Wanted To Know But Were Too Alive To Ask!” was organized and presented by our friend Jonathan London; Editor in Chief of Geekscape and co-producer of the awesome upcoming zombie documentary Doc Of The Dead!
From The Walking Dead to Left 4 Dead and World War Z to Rob Zombie, Zombies are everywhere these days (well, at least in pop culture). But could they actually make the transition from fictional monsters to fact? In this panel, we’ll sit down with Matt Mogk, Zombie specialist and head of The Zombie Research Society, Gavin Hignight from FEARnet and Shawn Kirkham from Skybound Entertainment (The Walking Dead) to talk about the science, history and social ramifications behind our biggest undead sensations, all in the hopes of seperating the zombie facts from the zombie fiction (before it’s too late)!
Topics ranged from the psychology of disaster preparedness to the definition and real science behind modern zombies… not to mention the inherent danger of zombie walks! The panel itself lasted about an hour and is currently available online for free courtesy of Geekscape.
