The Map of Zombies, A Classification Chart of Over 350 Different Types of Zombies

The Map of Zombies


Comic artist and author Jason Thompson has created “The Map of Zombies,” a highly detailed classification chart of over 350 different types of zombies. Prints of the map, which is still being refined by Jason, are currently available to purchase online through his Kickstarter campaign.

The Map of Zombies will be a 24″x36″ poster (the same size as my H.P. Lovecraft’s “Dreamlands” poster map) 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!
