Dread & Alive: Nine Night

The Chronicles of Dread & Alive

ZOOLOOK, the alter ego of IRIE Magazine’s founder and Editor-in-Chief, Nicholas Da Silva, is taking over the ROOTS feature section of our publication as he returns to his comic book roots to pen the next story arc of his Dread & Alive series entitled Nine Night™.

Each month, the ROOTS feature will chronicle an event in the Dread & Alive series that coincides with the story arc, Nine Night™. The ROOTS feature will also introduce a new character to the series. This month’s featured character is ZIGGI portrayed by our bredren, Ziggi Mastah aka DubTafari Sound, the Slovenian-Born reggae selector, and entrepreneur behind Ziggi Papers.

Dread & Alive

Featured on CNN, NPR (WEBZ 91.5 Chicago) and AFROPUNK, the Dread & Alive series is an epic tale of supernatural horror where the living meets the undead. The Jamaican-inspired series spans comic books, novels and music created, written, produced and published by mixed-media artist, ZOOLOOK. The series also meshes cultural fact with fiction and is accompanied by an exclusive soundtrack series featuring roots reggae music that spurs your imagination.

Dread & Alive introduces the Maroons of Jamaica, who resisted against enslavement by the British. It also shines a major spotlight on the Akan and Asante (Ashanti) People of the southern regions of present-day Ghana, formerly known as the Gold Coast.

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