Are Zombies the New Vampires?

Zombies on the Orange LineSure, vampires are still hot in popular culture, but all the cool kids know that zombies are where it's at. Maybe you heard about the zombies trying to stumble around the Lincoln Memorial the other day? Or at Farragut North? Or these guys on the Orange Line? They were out to promote the new TV series Walking Dead, based on the acclaimed graphic novel series (which the library has).
