'The Walking Dead' television series starts out very similar to '28 Days Later,' however, the '28 Days' franchise stole a lot from 'The Walking Dead' graphic novels. I'm not sure if it was a coincidence or if '28 Days' stole the hospital scene right from the 'The Walking Dead' graphic novel.
The main difference between '28 Days Later' and 'The Walking Dead' is that antagonists in this series are true zombies and not just infected by a virus. But by far the most interesting aspect about 'The Walking Dead' books is not the zombies, it's the living people. Real people dealing with impossible situations such as a zombie or a cylon apocalypse ('Battlestar Galactica') is what separates good sci-fi from the bad.
