It’s Halloween season…and who doesn’t love a good zombie story? AMC’s The Walking Dead is dominating TV and Romero’s Dead continue to press forward in new brain-munching glory with every new iteration. And the federal government does not want to be left behind!
Last May, the CDC had massive success with their Zombie Preparedness Kit campaign – teaching everyone about the value of being prepared for ANY emergency. Whether you are being threatened by a shuffling corpse or a tornado, being ready can save your life. A serious message delivered via a fun (and effective) campaign. The campaign went viral (how ironic) across social media channels and crashed the CDCs servers as people logged on for more info. Like I said, who doesn’t love a great zombie story?
Now the CDC is back with those fun-loving flesh-eaters in comic book format. You can download the online graphic novel Zombie Pandemic: Preparedness 101, from the CDC website for free. It educates about a preparedness kit against the gory backdrop of what else? A zombiepocalypse! Get ready..and read a comic book!
