What the f*&# is with this zombie obsession everyone has nowadays? At first I figured the genre was just gaining some steam and would die again. Now Discovery Channel did a special on surviving a Zombie attack, their are serious books devoted to fighting the undead, and I can't even count the amount of zombie related posts on this board. I'm not against the popularity, it just puzzles me. Could someone explain to me the skyrocketing obsession this nation has with animate corpses.
