FX just premiered The Strain last Sunday and unfortunately I haven’t gotten a chance to check it out yet.  But I hear the series, based on the books by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, is one of the more unrelenting takes on vampirism in TV history (and that it’s quite fun as well).  If you’re already a fan of the show, and if you’re going to be at the San Diego Comic-Con next week, then there’s an exclusive event you won’t want to miss.

The Strain (check out our recap) tells the story of “Dr. Ephraim Goodweather,” the head of the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City.  Goodweather and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism.  As the strain spreads, Eph, his team, and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers, wage war for the fate of humanity itself.  The show stars Corey Stoll, Maestro, Sean Astin, Kevin Durand, Natalie Brown, Jonathan Hyde, Richard Sammel, Robert Maillet, Jack Kesy, Ben Hyland, and Miguel Gomez.  Hit the jump for more info on how to get into The Strain Comic-Con event!
