It’s Scouts Vs. Mutants In Oni’s ‘Junior Braves Of The Apocalypse’ [Preview]

Junior Braves of the Apocalypse Preview
Oni Press

When it comes to the pre-apocalypse/apocalypse/post-apocalypse, we’ve seen our share of unlikely scenarios play out in comics, video games and film. One thing we haven’t seen yet? Scouting troops contending with man-eating mutants. Leave it to Writers Michael Tanner and Greg Smith, and artist Zach Lehner to hash out how the conflict might play out in Junior Braves of the Apocalypse at Oni Press. The only hitch? You’re going to have to wait until early 2015. But don’t worry, we’ve got an early look at pages to help you pass the time.

From Oni’s official release information:

After a camping trip out in the mountains with their grizzled old scoutmaster Padre, a troop of scouts, the Junior Braves, discover that the world has been wiped out in an apocalyptic disaster, and overrun with bloodthirsty mutants. Using all their scouting skills and knowledge, these young boys try to survive on their own, while searching for clues to the whereabouts of their evacuated families.

While these scouts aren’t from the official Boy Scouts of America, judging from Oni’s preview pages it seems they’re generally into the whole “Be prepared” thing — no, not the song an evil lion sings — just general readiness to react to unexpected situations. I’m not sure about the “Leave no trace” part of scouting, but manuals don’t have sections about how to handle murderous mutants. Or do they? I never got past Wolf Cub Scout. Anyway, get a first look at three pages from Junior Braves of the Apocalypse below.
