The following image dump serves to remind me of time spent hunting for suitable illustrations and slapping them around where necessary. (It's usually necessary; captions at the very least. Often it's a matter of introducing found images to each other.) Some pics below link to their respective posts or threads. There's rather more zombie-themed memorabilia than one might expect. A sign of the end times, perhaps.
