Welcome to the official home of Dread & Alive!
If you’re new to the site, you’ll soon discover that Dread & Alive is more than just a comic book series; it’s a storytelling experiment, one that fuses art, history and music… reggae music! Dread & Alive is the first superhero comic book/novel and music series featuring a Jamaican as the protagonist. Created and written by Nicholas Da Silva and published through ZOOLOOK, the story follows Drew McIntosh and his heroic exploits as he battles the dark forces of babylon empowered with a sacred amulet created by the ancient Maroons of Jamaica.
Dread & Alive is also the first multimedia series spanning comic books, novels and music. First published in 1997 as an original short story and inspired by the Maroons of Jamaica and the music of reggae legends like Bob Marley & The Wailers, Peter Tosh, Black Uhuru, Steel Pulse, Third World and Burning Spear, Dread & Alive blurs the line between comics and music, offering an original storyline that meshes cultural fact with fiction accompanied by the conscious sounds of today’s reggae music. So Jah Seh!
