Coming off a wildly successful invasion of Indianapolis, IN, DAYS OF THE DEAD sets its sights toward expansion as the Sickness spreads southward to Atlanta, GA early next year.
With the first DAYS OF THE DEAD being an overwhelming success, the event that was called "the most anticipated horror convention of 2011" is now poised to come back even bigger and better in 2012 with not one, but TWO great shows - the first an expansion show slated for Atlanta, GA, March 9 - 11th, followed by a return to Indianapolis, IN, July 6 - 8th, 2012.

DAYS OF THE DEAD II: The Dead Walk takes over the city of The Walking Dead, invading the Wyndham Peachtree Conference Center, March 9th - 11th, 2012 and promises to be every bit as exciting as the original DAYS OF THE DEAD show earlier this year.

Promising a full roster of fresh new guests and fan favorites, DAYS OF THE DEAD: Atlanta has come strong out of the gate with the first ever Rock and Roll High School reunion in over 30 years, featuring convention regular PJ SOLES (who played lead the punk rock loving, Riff Randell) and her co-star, DEY YOUNG (who played the lovable, Kate Rambeau), in what is Dey's first convention appearance ever!


Also announced, is A-List star, GARY BUSEY (Silver Bullet, Point Break, Lethal Weapon, Preadtor 2), award winning special effects duo, ALEC GILLIS and TOM WOODRUFF JR. (Aliens, Monster Squad, Tremors, Alien Vs. Predator), and 80's scream queen, TAAFFE O'CONNELL, known for her shocking role in the Roger Corman sci-fi classic, Galaxy of Terror, and who is also making her first ever convention appearance at DAYS OF THE DEAD: Atlanta.
