You may remember our story back in May that the government website for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention posted a zombie preparedness article on their official blog. They are back with more zombie preparedness information, but this time it is in comic book form. Titled Preparedness 101: Zombie Pandemic, the CDC has released a 40-page comic book to help you prepare for the zombie apocalypse.

"CDC has a fun new way of teaching the importance of emergency preparedness. Our new graphic novel, 'Preparedness 101: Zombie Pandemic' demonstrates the importance of being prepared in an entertaining way that people of all ages will enjoy. Readers follow Todd, Julie, and their dog Max as a strange new disease begins spreading, turning ordinary people into zombies. Stick around to the end for a surprising twist that will drive home the importance of being prepared for any emergency. Included in the novel is a Preparedness Checklist so that readers can get their family, workplace, or school ready before disaster strikes. Click on the images below to view the novella. Transcripts of each chapter are provided below each chapter thumbnail."

They say that this is to teach general emergency preparedness in an entertaining way, but when a government organization starts posting about zombies, it makes you wonder how close we are to an actual zombie outbreak. To read the full comic, click on the image below:
