What could be better than Star Wars zombies?
Star Wars artist Matt Busch redid all 6 Star Wars movie posters with zombified Star Wars characters – he made each consecutive poster more decayed than the previous poster. He’s an artist and a zombie genius! Other artists joined in and added to the Star Wars zombie movie posters.

And then. . . came the zombie stormtroopers known as Death Troopers in a new book by Joe Schreiber.
When the Imperial prison barge Purge, temporary home to five hundred of the galaxy’s most ruthless killers, rebels, scoundrels, and thieves’ breaks down in a distant, uninhabited part of space, its only hope appears to lie with a Star Destroyer found drifting, derelict, and seemingly abandoned. But when a boarding party from the Purge is sent to scavenge for parts, only half of them come back, bringing with them a horrific disease so lethal that within hours nearly all aboard the Purge die in ways too hideous to imagine. And death is only the beginning! The Purge’s half-dozen survivors?two teenage brothers, a sadistic captain of the guards, a couple of rogue smugglers, and the chief medical officer, the lone woman on board, will do whatever it takes to stay alive. But nothing can prepare them for what lies waiting aboard the Star Destroyer amid its vast creaking emptiness that isn’t really empty at all. For the dead are rising: soulless, unstoppable, and unspeakably hungry.
Guess who two of the six survivors on board are? Hmmm? Why Han Solo & Chewbacca! (This happens before the Battle of Yavin and events in the movie A New Hope.) And there are even zombie Wookies! (I’m trembling.)

The legions of the undead are here. Nothing can prepare the galaxy for what lies waiting aboard a seemingly abandoned, derelict Star Destroyer. Amidst its vast creaking emptiness the unknown is lurking and the dead are slowly rising: soulless, unstoppable, and unspeakably hungry. This elite Stormtrooper is infected with more than just the dark side. At 6.5 inches this remarkably horrifying 1/6th scale mini-bust is crafted in heavy, high quality poly-stone, featuring detachable armor plates revealing the morbid decay of the Imperial walking dead. Accurately sculpted with detailed and distressed armor, then hand painted to Gentle Giant?s always exacting specifications. This fine collectible is a limited edition.

Don’t you think this should be a movie? Maybe even directed by Danny Boyle (28 Days movie director).
