After the Rain is a graphic novel adaptation of Hugo and Nebula Award–winning author Nnedi Okorafor’s short story “On the Road.”

Features bonus content including Q&As with the creative team and never-before-seen art and designs!

During a violent and unexpected storm in a small Nigerian town, the destiny of a Nigerian American woman named Chioma is revealed . . . and her life is changed forever. She answers a knock at her door and is horrified to see a boy with a severe head wound standing at her doorstep. He reaches for her, and his touch burns like fire. Something is very wrong. Haunted and hunted, Chioma must embrace her heritage in order to survive.

John Jennings and David Brame’s graphic novel collaboration uses bold art and colors to powerfully tell this tale of identity and destiny.

“Jennings paints an initially terrifying reality, highlighting the vulnerability of self-discovery and the tension of being from two different worlds and cultures. Part horror, part magical realism, this #OwnVoices story is a worthwhile addition to any collection.” —School Library Journal (Starred)
