According to reports from ZombieVirus.org (ZVO), a “zombie virus” has already infected thousands of people across the globe, causing an epidemic of violence, cannibalism, loss of fine motor skills, and an insatiable hunger for human brains. The highly contagious virus is transferred via touch, especially by bites from infected individuals who have become zombified “walking dead”.
ZVO is tracking the spread of the epidemic and reports numerous confirmed cases which continue to be dismissed and covered up by governmental authorities and mainstream news organizations. The SoCal ZVO team has alerted residents in Southern California areas of elevated threat levels, recommending mass evacuations and preparedness training for those unable to evacuate. In particular danger are residents of San Diego, with the epidemic projected to reach severe levels in mid-July.
Independent zombie-watch groups have called for the immediate cancellation of the upcoming 2012 San Diego Comic-Con event scheduled for the 12th through 15th of July, though SDCC officials are apparently ignoring the warnings as the event is still scheduled to take place.
As comic book nerds, sci-fi geeks, and professional cosplayers gravitate to the area and gear up for SDCC, many are becoming infected by the zombie virus, turning into undead representations of their favorite characters. Locals in the area have already begun defending their homes against the invading undead horde and have uploaded videos of zombie attacks to Break.com.
Break Media, the official digital partner of Nerd Machine’s Nerd HQ, will broadcast nightly video reports hosted by zombie-slayer Zachary Levi, in addition to live streaming the “Conversations for a Cause” panels at SDCC.
Many ZVO team members believe an area at particular risk is Petco Park in San Diego, CA. Several individuals infected by the zombie virus have escaped quarantine and were tracked shambling toward Petco Park. Some ZVO members believe that many “Walking Dead” are attracted to this location for paranormal reasons. Despite warnings from authorities, local neighborhood groups have begun organizing an investigation of Petco Park and the surrounding area, while other residents are coordinating viewing parties to watch the zombie activity. Survivors and spectators can find more information and purchase tickets at the Walking Dead Escape website.
Intrepid Trek Radio representatives Risa and Deyvid will be on location reporting live from San Diego Comic-Con and will expose any zombie activity they encounter at the various events and parties they are scheduled to attend. We recommend SDCC attendees and San Diego area residents exercise extreme caution, refer to the Zombie Survival Guide and always follow all of the Zombieland rules. We hope every living person has a great time surviving this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.
