Probably counts as a Zombie Infestation, but the original Apocalypse that got the whole business going was Jesus'. Wouldn't choose that one, I guess.

    I've always felt it unfortunate that the term "apocalypse" has come to mean "horrible end of the world as we know it", when it really just means "revelation". Apocalyptic literature didn't begin with the Christians, but began not long prior, and was certainly very popular among early Christians.

      Larry, from Apocalypse 1: The Ugly, the Bad, and the Good:

      People get scared when they hear the word Apocalypse, but here I mean it in the good sense: a Revealing. An Apocalypse is supposed to reveal good news to good people. (And if it also happens to reveal bad news to bad people, so be it. Just don't be bad.)

        Thank you. I should have known (remembered?) that Larry would have something to say about it. :-)
