Just in time for SDCC, Her Universe adds another franchise – They’re now making products based on AMC’s zombie drama The Walking Dead. It’s not a show I’m all that familiar with, but one thing’s for sure – that hoodie is killer. (There’s more, including a dress, at the link!)

The line isn’t online yet, but it will be available at at San Diego Comic-Con so we’ll no doubt be seeing it soon.

(Star Wars fans, there’s something new for us, too – An Artoo dress at Hot Topic!)
