It is widely assumed that when the inevitable zombie apocalypse finally occurs, survivors will revert back to a barter economy as we exchange, say, bottled water for scythes and dead crows. (Mmm, dead crow stew.) But what if money is still worth something? How will you store all your change in a way that will also remind you that you could get eaten while on the way to buy something to eat? Walking Dead writer Robert Kirkman’s Skybound imprint has the answer.
On Tuesday, the company announced that Walking Dead fans will soon be able to buy an 8-inch Rick Grimes bust bank, which you can exclusively see above and which alert readers will notice is based on the comic version of the zombie-battler rather than the as-played-by-Andrew-Lincoln TV one (the clue is in the number of hands he has left).
The Rick Grimes bank will be available from this fall for around $23. Check it out and tell us what you think.
