Trip, the clumsy but streetwise raccoon, has managed to survive the zombie apocalypse with the help of animal friends and a few kind humans. But he can’t help but notice one thing: he’s the only raccoon in his crew. In fact, he’s the only raccoon he’s seen in ages.

Where have all the raccoons gone?

The answer to that question is scarier than any zombie hoard. People have discovered that raccoons are more than just scavengers who knock over their garbage bins; they might be a tool for ending zombie-ism.

And that is bad news for raccoons.
