Skybound Entertainment has revealed their plans for their virtual convention The Walking Dead: Survivors Presents Xpo 64 set for May 14th. The event will be available on both Skybound’s YouTube and Twitch channels. The event runs from 10 a.m. PT to 4 p.m. PT.
Comics fans will note there are a few interesting panels, like one on the upcoming What If style series Skybound X featuring Robert Kirkman, Tillie Walden, Irma Kniivila, Khary Randolph, and Ramon Perez! There are also panels about writing for video games, the grind of being a Twitch streamer, RPG tabeltops, and trivia too.
Check out the full lineup below.
