There has been a recent increase in the sheer amount of zombie texts dealing with our (gross) love of the walking dead.

Where, or when, did we decide that zombies now fit into our old archetypes of the supernatural boy/girlfriend? Is this is simply a new evolution of the ever-expanding zombie genre? Is this the work of those darned Millennials? Can a creature so universally aligned with horror and terror survive the type of transformation necessary to become attractive?
