Nine Night is the next story arc in ZOOLOOK‘s Dread & Alive series. Scheduled for a February 2021 release, the 12-issue maxi-series will include a wraparound cover for each issue along with an original soundtrack featuring roots rock reggae and dub music with each release.

ZOOLOOK’s Dread & Alive introduces the first Jamaican superhero in comics, with its protagonist, Drew McIntosh, while featuring a black comic book series steeped in West African Spirituality. In Dread & Alive, ZOOLOOK meshes cultural fact with fiction while introducing the Maroons of Jamaica, who resisted enslavement by the colonial British, and their ancestors, the Akan and Ashanti (Asante) People of present-day Ghana.

In Dread & Alive, the protagonist and soul rebel, Drew McIntosh, sets out to defeat an antagonistic force in the form of a powerful Obeahman Shadowcatcher™.

In Dread & Alive: Nine Night, ZOOLOOK gives us a twisted take on the funerary wake where the veil between the living and the dead, man and spirit, is pulled aside.
