Scott Shriner spoke about his connection with ‘The Walking Dead' to the LA Times at the event:

"Weezer doesn't exactly embody apocalyptic survival culture, but Weezer and Walking Dead both have thrived within indie subcultures and appeal to fans who float on the fringes... I got into the comics backward after the TV show. I lost touch with the comic culture for a while and thank The Walking Dead... for reconnecting me with what was an important aspect of my younger, snarkier years."

Limited Edition Posters

Rock artist Brian Ewing designed a set of four, limited edition 18" x 24" screen-printed posters in three different colorways (Choking Blue, Blood Red, and X-Ray Black), limited to 100 sets each. The Blood Red and the X-Ray versions were available on the SDCC show floor at the Walking Dead booth and online, with a few available at Ewing's own booth; the Choking Blue was later created due to the popularity of the posters at SDCC, and available online. Each featured a "zombified" version of one of the band members. In addition, a separate, offset promo poster featuring all four of the band members together were given out to those who went to a special Walking Dead/SDCC signing event with the artist and the band prior to the party.
