Well, it isn't too often that a Pez dispenser is given such a high profile in a comic strip, so the company certainly doesn't mind the attention. The problem is that Sequential Art is very obscure, so most customers won't recognize the figure. We'd have to include some pictures of the thread on the collector's box, or just hope that customers are content with a cat-like head without knowing the background. Their 2010 dispensers are of things like the Geico gecko and a Food Lion lorry, so I suspect that companies are actually paying Pez to create dispensers these days, rather than Pez paying companies for use of their character.

Another problem is that Kat is dressed as Laura Kroft, so the copyright lawyers will want to mull over the matter. Still, it wouldn't hurt to ask the company about it. No doubt Jolly Jack wants some of that tasty licensing income someday. Maybe he'll send Pez an e-mail just to see what comes of it.

I'm serious about wanting to find a market for an animated version of SA. Licensing is part of that business, so yeah I try to keep up with it (though not Pez in particular).

today I saw an actually candy gun in a hardcore candy shop! It fires little balls (probably sugar). I didn't buy one or did I use one so I do not know how well it shoots, but in honor of SA I bought a pez dispenser and some pez there.

Quoth BenRG:
Could sugar be their secret weakness?
Actually, it's salt that kills the traditional zombie as it reminds them of the earth they came out of. As for more Hollywood-ized zombies, your guess is as good as mine, although they generally don't seem to like sunshine it seems. It's probably extremely difficult for them to find sunscreen with the right SPF.

There are very few things, alive or undead, that can really maintain any level of functionality sans head.

The only two examples of monsters that can manage without a head I know of are the 888-series Terminator and John Carpenter's "The Thing", whose various parts will just all start moving independently and try to kill you.

It's my general understanding that zombies aren't typically seen during the day, instead preferring to shamble about in the night. However, I suppose it would depend upon the zombie.

Skeletons.
The headless horseman.
El Pollo Diablo, probably.

Actually, in D&D, nearly every undead can function perfectly well without a head. Well, it might bite you a bit less.

It ain't no cameo, only an act of cosplay for the sake of satire and/or parody.
I love fair use.

A pez dispenser probably wouldn't include Kat's dressup though, mind you.

The thing is I didn't say removing the head would work on those ones did I? :p Just plain old normal, Brain munch, slow moving, diseased corspe. Wink

And CyberCorn Entropic Check out a few more Zombie films. Lots in daylight. Wink

Yes, I was talking about the Pez dispenser, not her attire in the comic. Unfortunately, copyright law can really be a pain. Don't even get me started on "Errors & Omissions insurance" (one of the reasons why it's getting tougher for independent filmmakers to get anything distributed these days).

How so in this case? What sort of pez-dispenser are you really imagining?

Also, fair use very specifically does include parody or satire works.
Kat's attire fits quite snugly into that category of fair use, which is
kinda obvious when you remember it's all meant as a goofy joke.

I do know copyright laws. While they're a bitch to work with sometimes,
there are some inevitable loopholes you can and should exploit at times.
