Fanatic zombies (aka fans) are invading cities nationwide in anticipation of catching the Johnny Cupcakes’ fall 2012 “Cupcakes from the Crypt” Coffin Tour – just the latest adventure from the t-shirt brand with a recipe for success. The Halloween-themed tour will kick-off in New York City on Sept. 28.
