It was World War San Diego as the undead rose up against the living, again, on Saturday and zombies walked the Gaslamp District of Earth during the seventh annual Zombie Walk at Comic-Con International.

The well-attended event displayed more than 500 ably animated dead bodies mingling with the living while drinking and possibly discussing comics and brain recipes.

Sometimes a photo does say it all, so click on the gallery above and enjoy the carnage.

[FOR THE RECORD: An image in the gallery identified a zombie as Roger Stephens. It is Maryann Cummings.]

    Excuse me, that photo is of ME and my name is Maryann Cummings. I sincerely hope that, at least out of makeup, I do not look like a ROGER.
