Immunity Warriors:
Invasion of the Alien Zombies

Alien invaders descend on a world while defensive forces prepare to battle the intruders... is this the plot from a new blockbuster movie? No, this is the story of Immunity Warriors: Invasion of the Alien Zombies, an online motion comic to educate school-aged kids about the immune system and the importance of vaccination.

How Immunity Warriors came to be

Hello Immunity Warriors, I hope you enjoyed reading Invasion of the Alien Zombies! The idea for this comic came when my wife volunteered me to give a science presentation to my son Matthew’s Grade 6 class. I decided to talk about immunization and tried to draw parallels with a space invasion, after all Star Wars – the Force Awakens was coming out around the same time. I was surprised at how well the analogy worked and how engaged the class was with the presentation. I thought this might be a great way to teach kids about the cool science behind immunization and its importance in fighting disease.
