The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Zombie Jim

THERE WARN’T NO HOME LIKE A RAFT, AFTER ALL.

THE MONSTERS CAIN’T GET YOU THERE. NOT SO EASY.

Free at last! Huckleberry Finn and Bagger Jim, his dearest, deadest friend, have set sail on a great adventure once again, but this time rattlers, scammers, and robbers are the least of their worries. The pox is killing men and bringing them back meaner and hungrier than ever, and zombies all over are giving in to their urges to eat. Huck can’t be sure that friendship will keep him from getting eaten up too, but with a price on Jim’s head for the murder Huck staged of himself, they’ve got to rely on each other and the mighty Mississippi to make their great escape. . . .
