What's Up At Zombie Con



I wish I could have spent the weekend at the 2nd annual ZomBcon, but at least I had the pleasure of attending the event on Saturday. This was an all around great convention that included fantastic booths, merchandise, the artist alley, movie industry peeps and panels.  Even though the event was a little spread out, I found it actually fan-friendly because it allowed for intimate interaction with everyone.  People watching was entertaining.  So many attendees dressed up and got into the spirit of the con.  I met everyone I wanted to, had no problem getting photo-ops, autographs and a chance to chat with participants and vendors.

John Skipp is a New York Times bestselling author, editor, zombie godfather, compulsive collaborator, musical pornographer, black-humored optimist and all-around Renaissance mutant. His early novels from the 1980s and 90s pioneered the graphic, subversive, high-energy form known as splatterpunk.

Zombie Killers Handbook
Ben Forman was just an ordinary guy, a young professional starting his first job and falling in love with his girlfriend. Living in the outskirts of a southern city, he didn't think the zombie activity so common in the major cities would hit so close to home. But it was becoming clear that the mysterious infection reanimating the deceased was a growing epidemic across the country. The question was, would he stay alive or become the undead?
In this one-of-kind approach to teaching about sin, grace, and salvation, The Christian Zombie Killers Handbook tracks the fictional life of Ben Forman and offers solid Bible teaching to help readers understand the gravity and consequences of life without God, of life as a zombie. Ephesians 2:4-5 says, "But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in our transgressions--it is by grace you have been saved." Without the salvation Jesus offers, we are all as good as dead. But as this book teaches in a winsome, cutting-edge, culturally relevant style, anyone can kill the zombie inside, escape the clutches of the undead, and come alive by the supernatural power of God's salvation.
