Zombie preparedness

You may remember the Center for Disease Control's tongue-in-cheek guide to surviving a zombie pandemic from last year. I thought it was a good idea, capturing people's interest in an entertaining way and teaching them a little about diseases and, more importantly, disaster preparedness.

Our 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 image below to view the novella. A transcript can be found by clicking on the “accessible text” PDF. You can also download the novella on Google books here or download a printable pdf versions here.

They got lots of press for it and it seemed to be received well. Unfortunately they decided to follow up with the CDC's guide to surviving your wedding day. Worst. Sequel. Ever.
