Humans were once the only type of zombie the living had to fear, but the infection is spreading to other creatures — specifically buffaloes. Herds of zombie bison now roam the streets searching for survivors alongside the shuffling human undead.
A haggard Black Diamond is the focus on the obverse. His appearance consists of bones and muscle emerging through shredded skin and fur. The former mammoth is a shell of his former self with his ribs, spine and skull fully exposed. Inscriptions encircling the monster read THE AMERICAN ZOMBUFF, Z TWO and 2018.
