What was thought to be a fad, is harder to kill than Fidel Castro, and was worth $5 Billion to the United States Economy alone last year? Facebook? No. Google? No. Justin Bieber? God we hope not.
If you answered “The Zombie Genre” (either because you already knew or were smart and read the title of this article) then you win a billion-gazillion points (worth absolutely nothing but bragging rights)!
That’s right boils and ghouls- from movies, books, comics, television shows, bizarre gifts, and games to a restaurant in Des Moines, recent mainstream news, and even this very website- Zombies are every where you look!
When everything else in the world economy (arguably) tanking it is good to know that the “Industry of the Living Dead” is alive and thriving (pun unashamedly intended). The only problem is that with all of this Zombie stuff to sift through, how does the Zombie fanatic with the discerning taste know what stuff is worth his cash and what is crap? Why, you turn to ZZN’s premiere Reviewer Steve The Zombie of corpse… er course!
With dozens of books and products flooding my office per month, I take my job as Reviewer for ZZN very seriously. I read every book I agree to review and only tell readers about the best. Same goes for products. There are A LOT of products out there. Every company and their brother seems to claim to have the most unique and highest quality products on the market. Only ONE company has shown time and time again that they mean it. That company is neatoshop.com! Sure they have bumper stickers and kick-ass tees but where your money is truly best spent is their functional yet fun Zombie gifts!Prime example: their Zombie Finger Letter Opener! A great item to accompany your Severed Zombie Head Desk Organizer, the Zombie Finger Letter Opener (like all Neato Shop products) features amazing sculpting and an awesome paint job. Each of the Neato Shop items is hand crafted and painted so no two are alike– meaning that when Neato Shop promises a UNIQUE GIFT, they mean it! The severed finger has a spike (not sharp) from one end and one of a Zombie’s Phalanges on the other. Brilliantly crafted and built to last, the finger is not too gory but not too fake either. It will certainly turn heads, and that’s a promise! Wether the Boss sends inter-office mail that you’ve been dreading or your home mail is full of bills, give ‘em the finger. At only $9.95, its a steal!
Also (not that we would ever tell you to do this) it sharpens nicely for a Zombie Slaying pike that would slide nicely through the bottom of a snapping jaw and into the soft pallet of the mouth to kill the brain of a Zombie… just saying… you know you thought of it when you saw the pic, don’t lie.
Not really in need of office supplies? No problem! Check out their wicked severed Zombie Arm Bottle Opener! Also only $9.95, this little beast is a multi-function can and bottle opener– a perfect survival tool for the actual Zombie Apocalypse or just a cool discussion piece at a party when you crack a beer! As always the artistic features would be understated if you said they were impressive. The thing just looks cool, especially when it opens a bottle of your favorite brew!
I’ll continue to bring you all the coolest Zombie Stuff on the web because I know ZZN readers NEED to know where their hard-earned dollar is best spent and you and I can help keep the Billion Dollar Zombie that is our genre alive and thriving!!
