Your First Look at The Walking Dead Booth at Comic-Con 2014

The-Walking-Dead-Season-5-Comic-Con-Booth-Photos-560x330-v2San Diego Comic-Con 2014 is now open for business, and amc.com is on-hand to snag some exclusive pictures of the all-new The Walking Dead booth. Last year, fans got to see a replica of Rick standing guard in the prison watchtower, and then delve into the Governor’s man cave to have their picture taken in his leather chair. Now, the ante has been upped with recreations of not two but three iconic sets from The Walking Dead Season 4: Con-goers this weekend will first get to take their pictures with a walker laying on the railroad tracks. From there, they’ll pass through the walker-infested tunnel from Episode 15, where they’ll encounter walkers trapped in the rubble. Finally, they’ll end at a recreation of the warehouse at Terminus, complete with a replica of the shrine room that Rick, Daryl, Michonne and Carl stumble upon during their attempted escape in the Season 4 Finale. Check out the gallery now to get an even closer look at the booth.
