Comic takes kid-centred approach to underscore importance of immunization

OTTAWA, CANADA – Alien invaders descend on a world while defensive forces mobilize to battle the intruders… is this the plot from an upcoming blockbuster movie or a creative approach to science education?

Conceived by Dr. Kumanan Wilson, a physician, researcher and comic book fan, Invasion of the Alien Zombies approaches immunization education from a child’s perspective.
