What about this sudden frenzy about a rare and almost extinct fringe group? Comic fans are going crazy, lining up for the latese issue of "Walking Dead", devouring AMC's TV series (sorry for being so graphic). Quite a number of i-phone apps help fans to create their own personal zombie either from a real life photo or – much nicer in this case – in comic style. Pretty or not: zombies are hip.
