Comic Con Palm Springs 2018

Zombie-Walk From Our Hotel to Comic Con

Comic Con Palm Springs, held in August, is a young convention but certainly has no shortage of passionate fans. Recent celebrity guests have included the legendary Stan Lee, Lynda Carter and Rob Liefeld, creator of Deadpool. Find exhibitors of rare and vintage comic books, comic artists available for autographs, super sonic speed dating and everything zombie, including a zombie maze and zombie café.

Tips for Attending:

  • Don’t miss the zombie walk from the convention center through the streets of downtown Palm Springs. The destination? A zombie afterparty at Hard Rock Hotel, of course. Suit up in your best zombie garb.
  • Still not enough cosplay? Sign up for a costume contest. There’s a separate one for children, too.
  • Catch clips of classic movies under the stars to the accompaniment of a live pop symphony.
