After providing cover illustrations for the Night of the Living Dead comic and graphic novel series from Avatar Press, artist Matt Busch found himself bitten by the zombie bug, beginning a project that saw him zombifying iconic Hollywood movie posters, from Star Wars to E.T., Harry Potter to Breakfast at Tiffany's. Rather than simply Photoshopping effects over the images, Busch actually recreates each poster by hand, and then adds in the zombie effects. For the past several years, he has been displaying his handiwork on the Hollywood is Dead website, and now the Hollywood zombies are looking to shamble their way onto your coffee table!
A Kickstarter fund to turn Hollywood is Dead into a coffee table book has far surpassed its $13,000 goal, with a week still left for donations. What does that mean? It means that all of Busch's zombified movie posters will be compiled together into a beautiful hardcover book, a 200-page affair that will be packed with both posters that are available for viewing on his website as well as brand new ones that have never before been seen.
