Dread & Alive™
Drew McIntosh… the hero with an African face
Dread & Alive™ is a Jamaican-inspired series spanning comic books, novels and music created, written, produced and published by mixed-media artist, ZOOLOOK™.
Dread & Alive meshes cultural fact with fiction while introducing the Maroons of Jamaica, who resisted against enslavement by the British, and their ancestors, the Akan and Ashanti (Asante) People of present-day Ghana.
In Dread & Alive™: From Babylon to Zion™, the protagonist, Drew McIntosh™, sets out to defeat an antagonistic force in the form of a powerful Obeahman… Shadowcatcher™.
ZOOLOOK is currently working on the next story arc of Dread & Alive™ entitled Nine Night™. In this episodic series, Nine-Night (aka the ‘dead yard’ or ‘set up’), the funerary tradition or wake in Jamaica, takes on a whole new meaning when Shadowcatcher™ descends upon The City, seeking divine retribution against his brother, Cudjoe™, the Myalman, and to possess the soul of his apprentice, Drew McIntosh.
