Ok, some think it will come via virus. Some think it will come from drugs or from outer space. Some think it will come from evil sorcery or other stuff we can't think of. But regardless how it starts, we all need to make sure we're prepared for the Zombie Apocalypse.

Surviving the Zombie Outbreak will make sure you're ready and prepared - and best yet, it's small enough to fit in your emergency bag. Keep a copy on you at all times and maybe, just maybe, you'll make it through this. We wish you luck.
