Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Zombie Apocalypse Part II: Zombie Pandemic

Zombie Apocalypse




Earlier this year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) utilized an innovative tactic to capture the public’s attention with regards to disaster preparedness. Entitled, “Social Media: Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse”, it merged pop culture with the all too real threat of natural disasters in a manner that got the nation talking about “emergency preparedness”. The CDC’s latest endeavor is a comic book, or more correctly, a “graphic novella” which depicts a homeowner under seige by hordes of citizens who have been turned into bloodthirsty zombies by a mysterious virus.
