In 2009, Busch was tapped by Lucasfilm to come up with an image that would infuse STAR WARS and zombies as a campaign to promote the horror novel DEATH TROOPERS on StarWars.com. An avid fan of classic movie poster art, Busch’s idea was to recreate all six STAR WARS movie posters as if the living dead were interwoven within the saga’s plot. The fan reaction with the viral marketing was immense, and even before Lucasfilm strangely opted to remove the images from StarWars.com, buzz had already spread across countless fandom sites covering the clever parodies. With classics like Episode II: ATTACK OF THE UNDEAD, and Episode V: THE LIVING DEAD STRIKE BACK, ZOMBIE WARS were everywhere, including plugs on G4TV’s ATTACK OF THE SHOW and LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON.
