Mike McVey is sculpting again? Whoa. The last sculpt that I remember from him was Karchev the Terrible- more than a decade ago. I'm not at all surprised that he's in charge of the minis, but I'm really surprised that he's sculpting them. He's just been more of the minis art director for a long time (and he's clearly very good at it- he gets some of the best work out of some very good sculptors).

The style is different from other Zombicide stuff. It reminds me a bit of a historical miniatures line- very understated in comparison to what we normally see from CMON.

Wait- maybe Mike isn't sculpting. From the article, he says the sculpting team is RN Studios and David Camarasa. Mike is still doing a great job as art director (even with this project that is clearly very different from what he usually does).

Should have named this article "Rights of the Living Dead." So the film itself is public domain, but the restoration and the character likenesses are protected, right? The people who work with Image Ten have always had access to better copies of the film (a lot of the DVD releases have deteriorated so much that people think it was shot on 16mm film stock rather than 32mm). The likeness rights means that derivative works like the game need the license. What surprises me is that they claim that this protects from 'bootleg' copies of the original version of the film- which is still public domain. I was kind of surprised that CMON wasn't using additional Romero "Of the Dead" series stuff, but those rights are probably not held by Image Ten.

I love the title "Rights on the Living Dead!" Well played. Yeah, copyright law is very confusing to say the least. It doesn't help that some companies (ah-hem, Disney) find ways to extend copyright law far beyond what it was originally intended to do.

Campaigns under two weeks have broken the prediction model before, so I don't think it applies here. Especially since this campaign features no add ons or stretch goals. I do think it is interesting the ways in which they've chosen to incorporate Romero's style into zombicide (with the relatives zombies and lack of runners and abominations). And it is strange how many of those normal walker zombies I actually recognize from the film. I wonder how this will contrast to every other version of Zombicide that I've played.
