The Walking Dead took Comic-Con by storm yet again with another packed Hall H panel on Friday, but the celebrations for the zombie series didn’t stop there. Celebs and other Comic-Con attendees celebrated the comic book and the AMC TV show it inspired at a party near the San Diego Convention Center last night.
A follow-up to last year’s 100th issue celebration for The Walking Dead in Petco Park during Comic-Con, this year’s Hyundai-sponsored event celebrating the comic book’s 10th anniversary was in a parking lot in downtown San Diego. (Zachary Levi’s Nerd HQ had commandeered Petco Park.)
Weezer performed at the event — so yes, a bunch of Hollywood celebs did rock out to A-lister wannabe anthem “Beverly Hills.” Nathan Fillion beelined for the center of the pit in front of the stage as soon as he arrived. Among the other attendees were Lord of the Rings star Sean Astin, Fillion’s Castle co-star Molly Quinn, Buffy alum Seth Green, and Vampire Diaries actor Paul Wesley. Of course, talent from AMC’s The Walking Dead were also in attendance, including Lauren Cohan (Maggie Greene), David Morrissey (the Governor), comic book creator and executive producer Robert Kirkman, and Danai Gurira (Michonne).
