Even before "The Walking Dead" shambled onto TV schedules, zombies have been a constant in the pop-culture unconscious. It's such a wildly compelling scenario. All the old systems and routines get disrupted and characters are forced to adapt in ways we might not expect. At this point every fandom has at least one "Zombie AU" scurrying in the minds of its fans. We went looking for the best, most interesting, and most unexpected Zombie Apocalypse versions of our favorite franchises, and this is what we scavenged.

 

If there's a piece you really enjoy, click the artist's name and see if they sell prints or offer commissions. You can help these artists buy the canned beans and ammo they need to survive the oncoming hordes of undead.
