Promo button for the horror/comedy film Shaun of the Dead. I got this at the comic shop I go to here in Boston. After the first week or two of being on the counter, they were sussed out and thrown into the free box by the door. Thats the box of coverless / water damaged comics, lousy promo trading cards, and coupons for local businesses that no one cares about. A year or two later I saw someone pull one of these out of that box and get really excited. Thats when these transcended being a current promo and became a collectable. ( Its worth mentioning that the material for this is weird. There isnt a plastic cover over a paper inside, the image is printed right on very cheap feeling metal.)
