El Paso Comic Con Coming September 10th - 11th

Who does not like attending comic cons? The Angry Koala Gear crew has enjoyed this year with attending a few great events this year, starting immediately in January with the Amazing Arizona Comic Con. We have also been fortunate to attend the Long Beach Comic Expo in April (where we also had the opportunity to be extras for Season 5 of The Guild, "we even made the cut on the last episode!!"),  Phoenix Comicon in May, San Diego Comic Con in July, and now for the first time, the El Paso Comic Con on September 10th - 11th. We are very excited for the El Paso Comic Con because of the some of the guests that will be attending. We are huge The Walking Dead fans for both the Image Comic series and the AMC The Walking Dead. I have been lucky to meet a few of the cast members at previous events, and El Paso Comic Con will give us the opportunity to meet the Vatos from AMC's The Walking Dead. 

Not only will the Vatos from The Walking Dead be special guests, but the guest of honor will be Billy Dee Williams, along with many great guests. 

Here is the official press release:
