May is Zombie Awareness Month! 45% OFF Sale.

Were you aware that the month of May was deemed Zombie Awareness Month by the Zombie Research Society?

For those of you living in the dark and unaware what a Zombie is, a Zombie can be either a fictional undead monster or a person in an entranced state believed to be controlled by a wizard. These monsters are usually hungry for human flesh, often specifically brains. Sometimes they are victims of a fictional pandemic illness causing the dead to reanimate or the living to behave this way, but often no cause is given in the story.

Zombies are regularly encountered in horror and fantasy themed fiction and entertainment, appearing as early as the 1929 novel The Magic Island by William Seabrook. Time Magazine claimed that the book "introduced 'zombi' into U.S. speech". As of 2009, zombies are challenging the vogue for vampires in pop culture.

On the big screen, Zombies have made their presence felt in films like; Night of The Living Dead, Colin, 28 Days Later and several others.

On the small screen, the most famous Zombie sighting of them all was in 1983's Thriller - a Michael Jackson short film and music video.

Zombie's can also be found amongst the exploding gaming industry in such hits as; Resident Evil, Dead Rising, The House of The Dead, CarnEvil, Left 4 Dead and many others. Commonly in these games, Zombies are impervious to most attacks, except trauma to the head (which would instantly destroy the zombie).

So, if you see someone walking through the halls displaying a gray ribbon upon their chest know that they too are aware of these evil beings that lurk in the dark!

Huummmmm, Great idea, and I was really excited when I saw it advertised.... but this 'Zombie Awareness' category could actually do with a few more zombies. I counted a sum total of ONE zombie character. Disappointed.

Time Magazine is incorrect. 'Zombi' is a Haitian Creole word and it was most likely introduced into American speech and culture by Creole immigrants. It comes from the Bantu language (nzumbe).

The article seems a little dated. What about The Walking Dead - TV show and graphic novels - as well as the upcoming World War Z. Perhaps a bit of updating is in order?

I would have included my Groovy Zombie Bashing sets if I had known this was coming up, dang I have to pay more attention to what’s going on around here.

Okay I admit I don't have any Zombie related items in my store but I find it odd that as a vendor I never seem to be informed of these up and coming sales and have to wait 'til they are announced to the general public to learn of them, Just as well I couldn't take part in this one. Please keep the vendors informed, Thank you.

I love the idea of themed sales and all but this one seems more vampire themed than zombies. Most of the character sets I looked at have vampire related teeth, morphs or whatever. Even a lot of the clothing is vampire/gothic themed. Kind of a letdown not to see much even related to the zombie theme at all here. Oh well, still some good stuff here anyways.
