Skybound and Walker Stalker Con: Press Release - "Los Angeles, CA – March 26, 2015 – Robert Kirkman’s Skybound Entertainment has announced a new partnership with Walker Stalkers, LLC. The collaboration will offer cutting edge interactive experiences for Walker Stalker Con attendees, a reimagined The Walking Dead Escape at San Diego Comic Con, and a new immersive interactive experience. The collaboration will also bring The Walker Stalkers Podcast to Skybound Entertainment’s website, giving Skybound Insiders bi-weekly updates on The Walking Dead and exclusive interviews.
Founded by James Frazier and Eric Nordoff in 2013 Walker Stalker Con’s inaugural event in Atlanta was attended by more than 10,500 people. WSC has since welcomed more than 200,000 attendees in seven cities, and boasts an all-star guest list focused on Zombies, Horror & Science Fiction.
“From the beginning, our goal has been to create a true ‘fan experience.’ From special effect demonstrations to small, private interactions with celebrities, we want to give fans new ways to interact with the shows and characters they love,” says Frazier.
That interaction is about to get even more immersive thanks to Skybound Entertainment. Founded in 2010 by The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman and longtime collaborator David Alpert, Skybound Entertainment is a multiplatform entertainment company specializing in publishing, television, film and digital content, video games, merchandise, and special events.
"James and Eric started out as fans and have built Walker Stalker organically for other fans. We here at Skybound are excited to sponsor their podcast and conventions, as well as hatch new projects together, including the next iteration of our immersive zombie experience, The Escape," said Skybound Managing Partner, Jon Goldman, who announced the partnership at SXSW Interactive.
Says Frazier “To be working with Robert Kirkman, the creator of the world we love to much, is incredible. We can’t wait to show you what we have in store for 2015 and beyond!”
