The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated its zombie preparedness guides with a new graphic novel illustrating a couple, Todd and Julie, and their dog Max, as they weather a zombie pandemic, all the while using CDC disaster tips to stay ahead of the game.
This follows the zombie survival guide they published in May, based on the concept that “If you’re ready for a zombie apocalypse, then you’re ready for any emergency.”
Notably, in the new materials, they’ve dropped the “zombie apocalypse” scenario, for a “zombie pandemic,” suggesting that the CDC will ultimately prevail over these brain-hungry ghouls.
Of course, this is more of a clever way to relay disaster survival tips from the CDC—and it works pretty well. Their point is that the same practices that could save your life in any regular disaster would also come in pretty handy in the case of a zombie pandemic.
