Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman’s Skybound Entertainment imprint has joined forces with legendary make-up effects wizard Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead, Grindhouse) to produce a line of products based on Kirkman’s long-running undead comic and other Skybound titles. “I was so jealous when I saw what Greg Nicotero and KNB EFX Group created for AMC’s The Walking Dead television show that I sat down with him to see if he’s be interested in working his magic on The Walking Dead comic book series,” Kirkman said in a statement. “Luckily he agreed, and now I get to see awesome 3-D representations of the zombies that have appeared in the comic book over the years.”

The first fruit of that collaboration is the Nicotero-designed, life-size, and pretty darned gruesome zombie bust pictured below. The sculpture will be sold exclusively at Skybound’s Comic-Con booth from Wednesday and will be priced at $500. If that sounds like a lot of dough, bear in mind that Nicotero’s company KNB has only made 25 of the suckers and that each one features real human hair!!! [Cue: Demonic laughter.]

        They started to but decided your mom was the ugliest woman in the world and went with her. Maybe she can afford to move you out of her basement now and buy you a hooker so you can lose your virginity. Do you need a male hooker or a female?
