Swipe File: The Zombieland TV Show And Humerus Creations

The poster for Amazon’s upcoming online TV version of Zombieland looks like this.

Back at the 2008 San Diego Comic Con, Humerus Creations started selling t-shirts that look like this.

Today, Bret and Mark at Humerus blogged about this similarity:

We loved the Zombieland movie and have high hopes for the series. (remember when we both were exhibiting at the 2009 San Diego Comic-Con, and supported the San Diego Zombie Walk?) We want you guys to succeed.

We also want to protect our interests – which means our copyrighted image is not something Zombieland (or Amazon Studios or Sony Pictures Television) should be making a profit from without a legal agreement with us.

Hope to hear from you soon and resolve this in a positive way for both of us!

Thanks to Zombie Walk San Diego for the heads up.

In Swipe File we present two or more images that resemble each other to some degree. They may be homages, parodies, ironic appropriations, coincidences or works of the lightbox. We trust you, the reader, to make that judgment yourself.  If you are unable to do so, please return your eyes to their maker before any further damage is done. The Swipe File doesn’t judge, it’s interested more in the process of creation, how work influences other work, how new work comes from old, and sometimes how the same ideas emerge simultaneously, as if their time has just come. The Swipe File was named after the advertising industry habit where writers and artist collect images and lines they admire to inspire them in their work. It was swiped from the Comic Journal who originally ran this column, as well as the now defunct Swipe Of The Week website.
