Shambling goons? Zombies in our midst? It’s not a horror version of The Fellowship of the Ring but a new ad promoting Elite Comics’s Free Comic Book Day of the Dead.
Airing in certain Kansas City metro area markets during new episodes of this season’s Walking Dead on AMC, and created by store owner William Binderup and local filmmaker David Matheny (My Stepdad’s a Freakin’ Vampire), the ad features a local zombie group and cosplayers, and a cameo by certain Marvel Comics writer and store regular, Jason Aaron (Wolverine, Scalped), as a steely-eyed zombie.
The second annual Free Comic Book Day of the Dead is coming only to Elite Comics in Overland Park, Kansas, October 26, 2013. Come for free “National Free Comic Book Day” comic books, cosplay, and, of course, cake.
