img_9420It’s been more than a week, but the hits keep coming! ToyLanta (incorporating JoeLanta, Botlanta and The Great Atlanta Toy Convention) happened March 11-12, 2017. The very first panel on Saturday saw Mike Gardner and Mel Larch co-moderate The Walking Dead, and welcoming their guests, prominent walkers, Skip Bartlett and Don Teems.

Bartlett and Teems recount some hilarious tales of being undead on the set, encountering snakes and armadillos and the fun things that can happen when you spend hours and hours in the makeup chair. The hour flew by and Zombie Food was shared with the audience.

Regular readers of PopCult know that Mel (AKA Mrs. PopCulteer) is a rabid fan of The Walking Dead, and master dioramist, Mike Gardner, is also an authority on the show. They bring out some great stories from two of the show’s top “hero” walkers.

Check PopCult regularly because we’ll be posting all the panels we recorded all week long. Next up: It’s Podcast time!

ToyLanta happens every March in Atlanta, Georgia. It’s not too early to find out about next year’s show.
