The Junior Braves Free Comic Book Day edition features a 24-page excerpt from Book 1 of the hit Oni Press survival horror Young Adult series! Perfect for readers who are a little too young for The Walking Dead, this zombie apocalypse epic follows a plucky band of scouts as they navigate the end of the world with only their combined smarts, teamwork, and good old fashioned camping skills at their disposal. And even then, they’ve still got other survivors to contend with! Will Tribe 65 make it out alive?
