It’s a new year and that means it’s time once again for the Amazing Arizona Comic Con. The fourth annual event will be held at the Phoenix Convention Center from Jan. 24-26. This ever-expanding show is boasting a huge line-up of comic and genre themed artists and writers, with a particular focus on their special guest, The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman.

If you are a fan of the undead, the Amazing Arizona Comic Con is offering a “Walking Dead Premium Package” that includes head-of-line privileges, priority seating at panels, a bag full of Walking Dead swag, autographs, and an exclusive “Meeting/Panel” with Kirkman.
