FRIGHT-RAGS CHRISTMASSACRE SWEATSHIRT COLLECTION
You know all those holiday cards with the ugly sweaters, but these are just beautiful, paying homage to the HALLOWEEN and FRIDAY THE 13th films, JAWS, and more!
DOCTOR OF THE DEAD T-SHIRTS
Show your support for the most awesome zombie podcast in the apocalypse, and when you get one, send us your pics of it in the wild!
Z NATION SEASON 2
The show that does what it wants because it doesn’t know that it can’t is just concluding a cool and crazy second year, with a third on the way! Catch up on The Murphy and the Z-team with this Season 2 release!
THE WALKING DEAD SEASON 5
Yes, it’s unlikely anyone listening to DOTD hasn’t already caught up to the latest episodes of this show, but why not buy one of the best seasons for a friend and get them hooked too?
THE SIXTH GUN ROLE-PLAYING GAME
You love zombies, you love Lovecraftian horror, and you love the Old West – so this RPG was written for you! And, as a matter of fact, it was written by none other than DOTD producer and co-host SCOTT ALAN WOODARD, based on the comic book series from Oni Press!
THE WALKING DEAD: COMPENDIUM ONE
As with many popular, long-running comic book series, there are a number of formats and chronological presentations of the Robert Kirkman-scripted zombie saga that inspired the worldwide television success story. But here’s a nice way to get started at the very beginning yourself, or introduce a friend/loved one to the harrowing black-and-white experience!
TRIUMPH OF THE WALKING DEAD
If you just can’t get enough and want some additional commentary on this juggernaut of a zombie show, check out this superb essay collection…and we’d say that even if one of the chapters wasn’t written by Doctor of the Dead Dr. Arnold T. Blumberg himself!
Yes, the cheesy holiday staple now has a variety of zombie-themed styles. Collect them all! Or not. You know, it’s up to you, really.
THINK GEEK ZOMBIE PLUSH SLIPPERS
It’s very simple; just put your feet into the zombies’ mouths and enjoy the warmth and security.
THE LAST OF US REMASTERED
A new edition of the stunning game experience that surprised us all by slipping a special breed of zombie into their post-apocalyptic survival scenario. There’s a fungus among us!
The massive game line from Twilight Creations (do you have all the editions and expansions?) now has a version just for the kiddies! The zombies here don’t need to be taken out by a head shot; they just need a time-out. Aww, cute!
FUNKO POP THE WALKING DEAD DARYL DIXON AND CHOPPER
Funko Pop may just have found a use for every last piece of plastic on the surface of the Earth with their unending line of unbearably cute adaptations of all your favorite pop culture characters. There is probably a metric ton’s worth of WALKING DEAD figures alone, but this one has the added value of putting Daryl on his bike.
FEED BY MIRA GRANT
Part 1 of the three-part “Newsflesh Trilogy,” this amazing book is the Doctor’s pick for the most well-crafted modern zombie novel published in the last 20 years. You’ll probably want to rush right into the next two volumes, but be warned; things get wilder and crazier as you go!
iZOMBIE: DEAD TO THE WORLD
Speaking of getting started on a zombie comic saga, this volume not only gives you the chance to begin reading the series that inspired the fantastic TV show, but it demonstrates just how different the television incarnation is from its source material. Follow “Gwen” Dylan the zombie (NOT Liv Moore) as she adventures through a world of creatures you’ll never see on the CW!
