"It Started as a Fever..." was one of six designs that were created by artists J*RYU and Linda Le for a series called "Faces of Death". Each 20-incht all mega MUNNY had an encapsulated storyline tied into the mythos of zombies, presented by using the inside of the head to establish the environment for which the MUNNY designed had emanated. For this piece, the piece details the origin of the "outbreak" where the dead would rise, and it starts in a hospital room where something terrible has happened.
You can pick up this one-off piece only from Kidrobot, where it's selling for $1,500.00.
