Phoenix Comicon organizers started the guest-announcement machine back up again today, adding Laurie Holden and Danai Gurira from The Walking Dead to the list of talent appearing at the Memorial Day Weekend event at the Phoenix Convention Center.

Holden plays Andrea on the hit AMC survival horror drama, and played a key role in The X-Files as turncoat conspiracy agent Marita Covarrubias. Danai Gurira plays fan-favorite katana-wielder Michonne in the acclaimed comic book adaptation.

The impressive cast list also includes the original Star Trek’s Nichelle Nichols and most of the stars and creator of Babylon 5, among many others.
