Eight Little Zombies, rising from the dead. One got shot and lost his head. Neighbor called the Sheriff and the Sheriff said, “No more zombies rising from the dead!”
John LaFleur and Dave Metzger have taken to Kickstarter to get their 8 Little Zombies hardcover book produced. The story is a zombified spin on the classic children’s tale about eight little monkeys jumping on someone’s bed and then falling and being brutally injured.
The 8 Little Zombies plush - one of the backing rewards - is available at various funding levels. Hopefully, it will also be able to be purchased following the successful completion to the Kickstarter project.

The swing tag is shaped like a tombstone. It features the 8 Little Zombies logo and one of those zombie’s undead hands poking out of the ground. Inside, there is a sketch of the zombie character as well as part of the story (reprinted above).
With Kickstarter becoming a viable option for raising funds to self-produce toys, more artists and companies are taking that route to get their projects rolling and/or completed. And that’s where Dave Metzger (artist) and John LeFleur (writer) are looking to raise funds to get their 8 Little Zombies book produced.
