Greg Nicotero and Robert Kirkman produce 'Walking Dead' merch

Posted on


Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman’s Skybound Entertainment imprint has joined forces with legendary make-up effects wizard Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead, Grindhouse) to produce a line of products based on Kirkman’s long-running undead comic and other Skybound titles. “I was so jealous when I saw what Greg Nicotero and KNB EFX Group created for AMC’s The Walking Dead television show that I sat down with him to see if he’s be interested in working his magic on The Walking Dead comic book series,” Kirkman said in a statement. “Luckily he agreed, and now I get to see awesome 3-D representations of the zombies that have appeared in the comic book over the years.”

The first fruit of that collaboration is the Nicotero-designed, life-size, and pretty darned gruesome zombie bust pictured below. The sculpture will be sold exclusively at Skybound’s Comic-Con booth from Wednesday and will be priced at $500. If that sounds like a lot of dough, bear in mind that Nicotero’s company KNB has only made 25 of the suckers and that each one features real human hair!!! [Cue: Demonic laughter.]
