The Kentucky native who spawned a pop culture phenomenon is coming home. The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman will be speaking and taking questions at Eastern Kentucky University on Thursday, March 30th. 

The Walking Dead graphic novel series initially takes place in Kirkman's hometown of Cynthiana. "An Evening with Robert Kirkman" will have no moderator, just the writer himself talking with fans. Speaking of fans, folks are encouraged to dress up as their favorite 'Walking Dead' character, a zombie; there will be prizes awarded for best costume.

Here's an interview with Kirkman:

This is a MUST for fans of The Walking Dead. Tickets go on-sale to general public Friday (February 24) at 9:00 a.m. EST.  Once again the event is scheduled for Thursday, March 30th at 7:00 p.m. EST.
