The Walking Dead maker Robert Kirkman seems to have uncovered the extraterrestrial starting points of the zombie end times. Kirkman never tended to the reason for the anonymous infection before he finished his long-pursuing comic book 193 issues in July 2019, saying in 2018 the boundless disease and coming about end times could be accused distinctly for “an insane science fiction thing that would make the story all that a lot more peculiar.” If Kirkman is to be accepted, the pathogen began as a space-conceived spore:
“Space spore,” Kirkman composed on Twitter when requested to name what made walkers. Kirkman’s reaction is likely another respect to George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead, where researchers guessed the ascent of substance eating fiends was brought about by radiation from a space test to Venus.
“Maybe years after it’s all over I’ll just casually mention it in an interview. That seems like a very J.K. Rowling thing to do,” Kirkman said when asked about the origin of the zombie virus during a 2018 Q&A on Tumblr. “It couldn’t be less important to the story and the lives of these characters. It would be completely out of place in the story. Honestly if a scientist from Washington came to the character and told them what happened the characters would just shrug and say ‘Oh… okay…’ it wouldn’t change their lives at all… and… I’ve said too much.”
