It seems that The Walking Dead has a character who knows how it started. Naturally its "classified." I hope he's not killed before he's able to spill!

In Afterlife with Archie, it starts with Sabrina bringing Jughead's dog back to life, and just kind of balloons from there.

If you're talking about who I think you're talking about, then I can tell you that you're in for a big surprise! Tongue

RE: The zombie thread
Sometimes I prefer it when zombie stories don't explain the outbreak's origins. This heavily depends on how it's written and presented, though. For example, if a story is set several years after the first outbreak, those who knew it's origins may have died off. If it's set days, weeks or months after the outbreak, the government and/or people were so wrapped up in the panic and/or containment that they never found out the cause.

Again, only if it's done well.
