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.
