The Business of Intellectual Property

Intellectual Property

This is actually thanks to my wife.

She got a daily book recommendation calendar for Christmas and every so often comes across one she thinks I might like. Max Brooks’ “World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War” was one such suggestion, and I loved it.

I’m not normally a zombie fan, but for whatever reason this ignited a two month obsession with zombie films, video games, books, comics, and zombie banks. Though that last one was just good timing.

Anyway, my thoughts naturally turned toward the zombie chant “Braaaainsssss!” and this just sort of popped out. It’s a fairly new cartoon, and one of my recent favorites. (Zombies are really fun to draw!)

True, they’re fairly limited in commercial appeal, but I can’t see my love of zombie cartoons staying dead for long.
