This week we celebrate our very first full episode with an original story from Justina Ireland, bestselling author of Dread Nation. If you haven’t read Dread Nation yet, you’re missing out on my favorite read of this year.
Today’s story gives us a little taste of the Dread Nation world—one overrun with zombies in post-Civil War America. But don’t worry, this is a standalone story, so if you haven’t read Dread Nation, you’ll be able to fall right in and won’t hear any spoilers. And if you have read Dread Nation, well, you’ll get your fix for Black girls trained in skilled combat against the undead to hold you over until the sequel comes out.
