Throughout the comic and television series the cause of the sudden appearence of the Walkers has never been fully explained or revealed. However, there have been numerous clues left in both Fear The Walking Dead and The Walking Dead television shows that explain perhaps what exactly the walker plague is or might be. This is all of course pure speculation because Robert Kirkman has never specifically stated what exactly caused the outbreak other than whatever it is that does it is something that all humans have.
Which leads me to believe that whatever this thing is that it was not caused by some external force such as a bioweapon gone awry. The pathogen originates within the human body and that it is 100% communicable along with being fatal.…Read more >
We have all see it before from The Walking Dead to World War Z, the military and those that compose their ranks fall to hordes of undead cannibals that ultimately overrun society causing it to collapse.

There are few urban centers with a large population with the exception of the city of Burlington and the towns around it which has most of the states populous living in the city or nearby.

Because of the states low population density and rural settings, you would wonder why hollywood zombie movies with the exception of I Am Legend haven't taken notice of this tiny state as a perfect place to hide during a zombie epidemic.
The abundance of food that would be found on the farms would make living there an easy task and…Read more >
The video game series Dead Space by Visceral Games has broken the collective zombie mold. Even when other video game series such as Resident Evil or Left 4 Dead use more traditional zombies as the primary enemy. Traditional zombies are usually dimwitted cannon fodder that infect the living through bites or scratches who's only real advantage is sheer numbers. Necromorphs are unusual in the fact that they don't infect people by biting them and that they are incredibly intelligent recognizing when an individual has a weapon.
From what has been established in the Dead Space canon, is that the necromorphs are spawned by infected corpses that are mutated and repurposed into various grotesque shapes that either resemble humans or don't resemble p…Read more >
