Max wanted to forget his violent wartime past. He wanted to get a degree, maybe fall in love, start a family and live out his days in peace.
Then the dead rose.
Through a horrific classroom siege and into the devastated city beyond, Max struggles to build a new family from the rubble of shattered lives. When they meet the emergency team from Central Outbreak Response, they believe they are safe, and on the path to recovery.
But the dead keep secrets that threaten to destroy everything Max holds dear.
Did you know that the Centers for Disease Control and Preven-tion
has put out a Zombie Pandemic Comic Book
They have found the idea of a zombie apocalypse an effective platform to encourage people to prepare for potential disasters.
The CDC's director, Dr. Ali Khan, has stated, "If you are generally well equipped to deal with a zombie apocalypse you will be prepared for a hurri-cane, pandemic, earthquake, or terrorist attack."
The first World Zombie Day took place October 26, 2008 - the brainchild of The It's Alive Show
. Its purpose, besides fun, was to raise awareness of world hunger. (Were they suggesting that brains be used as a food source?)WorldZombieDay.org
states that World Zombie Day is "a day when all fans of zombie culture can join together in an international effort to alleviate world hunger."
Time magazine attributes the introduction of the word 'Zombi' into our popular culture to William Seabrook, in his 1929 novel The Magic Island
. Seabrook was a cannibal, who described human meat this way: "It was like good, fully developed veal, not young, but not yet beef." (Wikipedia.org
So, perhaps when zombies are eating us, they are thinking to themselves: "hmmm... tastes like veal."
