Creator Robert Kirkman
addressed the beginning of this and the comic series as being strongly similar to that of 28 Days Later...
(2002). According to him, it was "a complete coincidence. I saw '28 Days Later' shortly before the first issue of Walking Dead was released. That first issue came out in October of 2003 and 28 Days Later was released in the States in June of 2003. So we were working on our second issue by the time I saw it. It was going to be a matter of somehow trying to restage the entire first issue, because it was a very similar coma opening. I made a decision-which I pretty much regret at this point-I said, 'You know what? It's so different (from that point on), I will probably never hear anything about this.' And I was wrong." See more

With each passing year (or season) the title of the show (seen when the theme song is playing) decays a little more. Executive producer Gale Anne Hurd confirmed this. See more
