A Map of all Zombies by Jason B. Thompson

Jason B. Thompson has created a magnificent poster identifying over 350 different zombie types from movies, books, games & more.  For those with specific ideas on what makes a zombie a zombie, this vintage hospital illustration-style poster might seem like sacrilege.  But for others, it is a beautiful example of how complex the zombie genre has become.

The Map of Zombies was launched as a Kickstarter campaign where Thompson was hoping to raise $1000, and actually raised $20, 362!

Thompson describes his project:

” The Map of Zombies [is] a 24″x36″ poster that takes you on a tour of every imaginable type of zombie in a visual format. Drawn in the style of a vintage medical chart, it identifies over 350 different types of zombies from horror movies, books, video games, comics, manga and TV shows. ”

This map includes EVERY important (and almost every unimportant) zombie genre work, from Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar” to the movies of George Romero and Lucio Fulci, to Kengo Hanazawa’s “I Am a Hero.” Go from point to point on the map and discover the wide world of zombies, broken down by logical categories, like you were a scientist observing zombies in the field!
