Description

After the Rain is an adaptation of Nnedi Okorafor’s short story “On the Road.” The adaptation begins in Nigeria during a violent and unexpected storm. A young NigerianAmerican woman named Chioma answers a knock at her door and is horrified to see a boy with a severe head wound standing there. When he touches her, his hand burns like fire and he disappears. Chioma knows that something is wrong, and that the boy has “marked” her in some way . . . Haunted and hunted, Chioma must embrace her heritage in order to face her future. John Jennings and David Brame’s collaboration uses bold art and colors to powerfully tell this tale of identity and destiny.
