With the Salt Lake Comic Con FanXperience happening right in my backyard, I thought it was only fitting to post the top 5 reasons to attend this year's FanX. There are a slew of reasons to attend... I didn't include the merchants, which is my kids favorite part and where I splurge on my collectables collection every six months, and I didn't include the guests from Supernatural or Grimm, which are two of my favorite shows over the last few years, but instead decided to focus on the top 5 things that the users here on Cbm would be interested in. #1 - The Walking Dead Zombie lovers will also have a lot to look forward to this weekend, with opportunities to meet three stars from AMC’s “The Walking Dead.” Steven Yeun, Emily Kinney and Laurie Holden have been announced as special guests for the convention. They did a group photo on Thursday! »
This Sunday will be a huge day for sports fans as they gear up for Super Bowl Xlix, but for another, possibly larger group of fans, the day also starts the one-week countdown until The Walking Dead returns for the back half of Season 5 on Sunday, February 8. Today, AMC has released new character posters featuring the main survivors of this zombie apocalypse. The portraits feature Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Carol (Melissa Suzanne McBride), Tara (Alanna Masterson), Tyreese (Chad Coleman), Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green), Abraham (Michael Cudlitz), Maggie (Lauren Cohan), Michonne (Danai Gurira), Daryl (Norman Reedus), Eugene (Josh McDermitt), Rosita (Christian Serratos), Carl (Chandler Riggs) and Glenn (Steven Yeun).
The midseason premiere, entitled "What Happened and What's Going On" picks up after the last episode of 2014, "Coda", where the group lost another beloved member. Their journey to Washington D.C. has also been dashed, after Eugene finally confessed that he does not actually »

The trailer features Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his rag-tag group fighting their way through a foggy forest, with Rick reminding them all via voiceover that “surviving together is all that matters.” We see Michonne (Danai Gurira) draw her trademark samurai sword in preparation for a fight, along with Maggie (Lauren Cohan), Glen (Steven Yeun), and Daryl (Norman Reedus) laying down some serious firepower.

With little over a month until its much-anticipated return, AMC has unveiled a piece of key art for The Walking Dead Season Five.
Teasing the remaining eight episodes, the image sees Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes stare ominously towards the camera, with the main focus being on a discarded map with scrawled writing on it that reads: “The New World’s Gonna Need Rick Grimes.”
Following the events hitherto, Rick and his ragtag crew now find themselves on the road once again, with the possibility of a fabled cure lurking within Washington D.C.. Close to breaking point, it’s up to Lincoln’s fearless leader to wrestle things under control as their collective hope teeters dangerously close to the brink.
With a sixth season already on the way alongside the upcoming companion series — which is primed to take the flesh-eating action to Los Angeles — AMC’s reanimated juggernaut shows no signs of slowing down. »
