Movies and TV showed the Zombie Apocalypse as a single event, occurring suddenly due to an uncontrolled infection or some mysterious, mystical event. That couldn’t have been farther from the truth. It started slowly, subtly, and we just chalked it up to our own burgeoning medical and technological advancements: a few less patients died, accident victims recovered, once deadly diseases became less so. The First World was caught up in hubris and we patted ourselves on the back for being successful at cheating Death. No one paid much attention to the fact that it was happening in the rest of the world, too. The howling mobs and ravaging hordes would come later… much later.
