What’s the only thing that can make the once-a-year event where fans, geeks, and celebs join to celebrate all things nerdy? The only thing left to add…zombies! That’s exactly what BOOM! Studios has planned with what looks to be one of the coolest show exclusives for this year’s San Diego Comic-Con 2011: a one-shot issue of the book Fanboys Vs. Zombies.
Originally conceived by The Office producer Ben Silverman, the book takes some regular guys and throws them in the most horrifying of situations, in which the dead run wild at Comic-Con! Here’s the official synopsis.
They’ve been called geeks, nerds, and social outcasts, but when a group of fanboys take their annual trip to Comic-Con International they’ll find one of their greatest nightmares turned reality as San Diego becomes zombie ground zero. Armed only with the undead know-how they’ve gained from comic books, video games and horror movies, it’s up to one group of friends to navigate the Comic-Con feeding frenzy, and make it out alive!
But will the zombie hordes be deadlier than they ever imagined? Can they save their friends along the way, and still make it out with some Comic-Con exclusives? Find out when the dead rise at Comic-Con International in the chilling and side-splitting epic, FANBOYS VS. ZOMBIES!
Jabs at Hall H? Jokes about the crowds and high-priced bottled water? A Joss Whedon dig? You can expect all of these things and more in the one-shot, which can be obtained by anyone heading to the show this year — just make your way over to the BOOM! Studios booth at #2743.
