SDCC: Dead Island pub hosting 'Science of Zombies' panel

0

What if zombies were real? You know, like, eat your face off, "oh, snap, we have to break this staircase so they can't get to us" real? Science, as usual, has the answer.

You can learn more about the science behind the undead at the "Science of Zombies" panel, which Dead Island publisher Deep Silver will be hosting at San Diego Comic-Con next week.

The panel will consist of World War Z author Max Brooks, Dead Island writer Haris Orkin, and some doctors and smart people who are all listed below. It'll all go down in room 8 of the San Diego Convention Center on July 22 at 7:30pm, and there's going to be 12-hour line to wait in, like all other Comic-Con panels. So bring snacks, because you can't go biting into someone's skull and eating their brains.

…or can you!?!? TO SCIENCE!
