AMC released the Comic-Con Art for The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead today, giving fans their first look at the highly-anticipated upcoming seasons.
The Walking Dead poster shows Rick, Daryl, Carol, Michonne and Maggie with Season 8’s mysterious helicopter hovering in the background. The Fear The Walking Dead poster gives fans a hint at where Morgan, Alicia, Strand and company find themselves in the wake of the devastating Mid-Season Finale.
Additionally, AMC announced the cast and producers of The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead and Preacher will return to this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego, CA. AMC’s Emmy-nominated series Better Call Saul will also make its Comic-Con debut alongside a reunion panel for Breaking Bad in celebration of the Emmy Award-winning drama’s 10-year anniversary.

Gimple, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert and Executive Producer, Director and Special Effects Make- up Supervisor Greg Nicotero. The panel will be moderated by Yvette Nicole Brown.
In addition to panels, AMC will have a significant presence in and around San Diego throughout Comic-Con, including Dead Quarters the official fan zone of The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead.
