(USA TODAY) There's something for just about all TV fans at Comic-Con.
Like your zombies Southern-flavored? There's The Walking Dead and its walkers. From North of the Wall? There's Game of Thrones and its wights. From somewhere in the land of satiric? Zombies couldn't find Homer's brain on The Simpsons.
Those shows are among the best bets for fans this weekend in San Diego, if they can navigate the costumed hordes.
"I love Comic-Con," says Norman Reedus, who plays fan favorite Daryl Dixon on Dead. "Those are our people. "
For TV fans, here are some top shows that will be featured.
