Denver Comic Con announced yesterday that Max Brooks will appear at the convention on Saturday, June 14, 2014 to host a premium meet-and-greet and one limited-seating Q&A for DCC ticket-holders.

Tickets to a special “Max Brooks Meet-and-Greet” on Saturday June 14, 2014, are available for purchase by only 75 lucky con attendees with a valid, paid admission, so hopefuls are advised to purchase immediately. The $150 Meet-and-Greet tickets can be purchased online at www.DenverComicCon.com under the Tickets tab. For fans unable to purchase the special reception tickets, Brooks will also appear on a Q&A panel that Saturday in DCC’s Main Events Hall, and will sign an extremely limited number of autographs in Celebrity Summit on Saturday.  The Q&A panel is open to all Con attendees with a paid admission, but seating is limited. Fans having purchased the limited Meet-and-Greet passes will also gain Speed Pass first-entry access to the Q&A.

“The Zombie Survival Guide,” Brooks’ first book release, is the result of Brooks’ search for both the living dead and the ways to eradicate them, which has taken him to over 30 countries and territories in Europe, Russia, Latin America, the Caribbean, the Arctic, and Sub-Saharan Africa. Brooks’ “The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks,” reveals how other eras and cultures have dealt with—and survived—the ancient viral plague. Brooks’ New York Times best-seller, “World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War,” has been made into a major motion picture starring Brad Pitt. Brooks’ most recent release, the graphic novel “The Harlem Hellfighters,” was released on April 1, 2014.

The son of Mel Brooks and Anne Bancroft, Max Brooks is completely dedicated to the cause of raising awareness on the issue of Zombie survival. Born in New York City in 1972, Brooks’ introduction to the living dead began with a traumatic childhood incident, an incident he still refuses to discuss. Since that time, he has devoted much of his life to the study and development of anti-ghoul security. He is, at present, the leading Western student in the Afro-Caribbean martial art of Mkunga- Lalem, the world’s oldest and most effective anti-ghoul fighting skill.
