COSTA MESA, Calif., Oct. 4, 2013 – Zombies beware! Hyundai will welcome the newest addition to its zombie-fighting family at New York Comic-Con: Anson Kuo's Santa FeZombie Survival Machine. Aimed at effective undead annihilation, the fan-built vehicle will be on display for the living on the show floor on October 10.

As part ofThe Walking Dead Chop Shop configurator app designed by Hyundai and INNOCEAN ÚSA (launched during San Diego Comic-Con), fans have designed thousands of custom zombie survival machines using the Hyundai Veloster Turbo, Santa Fe or Elantra. This summer, Kuo's Santa Fe design was picked as the winner out of more than 82,500 fan submissions. His winning vehicle was constructed by Galpin Auto Sports (GAS) and the real-life machine will be unveiled on the New York Comic-Con show floor on October 10 at the Future ÚS booth.

Kuo, who hails from Arizona, created an urban camouflaged Zombie Survival Machine featuring: knife blades, an automatic crossbow, razor-wired windows, three machine guns, a samurai sword, aluminum armor and a muffler silencer. His mission was to create a stealthy vehicle with abundant cargo space for supplies and passengers, maximizing survivability against the undead. Having knives as a primary weapon ensures scarce ammunition is conserved, said Kuo. This Hyundai will be a true zombie obliterator.

'We love Anson Kuo's take on this Santa Fe Zombie Survival Machine – it's creative… and deadly,' said Steve Shannon, vice president, Marketing, Hyundai Motor America. 'With help from the popularity of The Walking Dead franchise, Hyundai continues to expand the conversation around Hyundai vehicles with young and passionate audiences.'

At San Diego Comic-Con in July, Hyundai unveiled a customized Veloster Zombie Survival Machine designed by Robert Kirkman and fabricated by GAS.

'Having Anson's winning design on display at New York Comic-Con is a fun way to celebrate The Walking Dead's 10th anniversary,' said Robert Kirkman.

New York Comic-Con attendees will be able to take pictures with the new Zombie Survival Machine at the Future ÚS booth and get inside the vehicle to check out all of the features. The booth will also feature a zombie make-up artist, limited edition giveaways, and more.

Hyundai's continued partnership with Robert Kirkman's Skybound imprint at Image Comics and Kirkman's groundbreaking comic and best-selling graphic novels, The Walking Dead, also includes a special gallery execution featuring 'The Walking Dead A Decade of Dead' curated by former editorial director Sina Grace. His display can be viewed at local gallery space Pillars 37 October 10-12. This event will showcase The Walking Dead artwork, famed illustrations, the Veloster Zombie Survival Machine from San Diego Comic-Con and an autograph signing by artist Charlie Adlard. Limited edition prints exclusive to the gallery will be distributed to gallery guests each day. The gallery will also host a private screening of the world premiere of the 'Hyundai Presents The Walking Dead A Decade of Dead' documentary.

The Hyundai and Future ÚS display will be located at Booth #542 on the show floor. To check out the documentary, visit TheWalkingDead.com on October 11.
