Media Release — Just when you think summer is about to end, Oni Press begins to shudder with excitement over the return of Junior Braves of the Apocalypse Vol 2: Out of the Woods! Written by Michael Tanner and Greg Smith, with art by Zach Lehner, this YA action/adventure story is perfect for young horror fans and hits shelves in both hardcover and paperback editions August 8th.
In a zombie wasteland of unknown origin, Troop 65 marshals onwards in the hopes of finding their families in Seattle, the nearest logical evacuation location. After a difficult journey by land and river, they make a stop in a suburban town that serves as ground zero of a battle between a corporate office that may have caused the apocalypse and the survivors from the nearby Native American reservation.
