Paramount Pictures just released the first trailer for the new movie, World War Z. It looks pretty epic! I am a big fan of AMC’s The Walking Dead and the original George Romero zombie flicks, and just about anything zombie-related I can dig. But, everything reaches its saturation point eventually – will the release of a $180 million summer blockbuster about zombies starring Brad Pitt finally herald the end of this craze? A veritable death of the undead? I’m not sure, but I know one thing: I’m going to see it.
There are a million and one zombie t-shirts out there – and a lot look very amateurish and corny. But these make me laugh, and are very well done:
“Lawn of the Dead” at Threadless:
“Zombie Protest” at ThinkGeek:
“Throwing Shapes, Eating Brains” at Threadless (Thriller inspired, for all you children of the 80s):
Does the Zombie genre still have legs, (pun intended) or like the fifth season of Happy Days, has it also jumped the Shark?

Most of Threadless’ new t-shirt releases sort of blend together, but every once and a while there’s something really stellar – like this Peanuts Tee from artist Phil Jones.

This is one of the recent winning designs from a Threadless inspired site in South Africa called springleap.
I’m woefully ashamed that we haven’t heard of these folks before, because besides having a really well-done site with a color scheme we can appreciate, they are rockin’ some great designs.
They launched February 2008 and are getting some great press both in SA and in elsewhere in the world. No wonder, with an active community built around great submissions to the monthly contest.
They buying process seems really easy too – though prices are in the South African Rand, they do ship to the EU and to the US. They have a live help, where one of the customer service reps informed me that shirts shipped to the US run about $23-$24 each (depending on the conversion rate) with around $7.00 in shipping ($1.50 for each additional shirt)
Fantastic! Threadless is now offering actual prints of some of their popular t-shirts designs. ALA tinyshowcase.com, they will offer a limited run of 3 new prints every Monday. Naturally, each design is screen-printed.
The first three designs are some of my favorites from their lineup:
Personally? I’m getting Tree Town.
