'UNDER THE FLESH' creeps onto Kickstarter
"Independent comic book creator Gilbert Deltres, with artist J.L. Giles, are set to launch their first Kickstarter for Zombie Comic UNDER THE FLESH.
It’s been two months since Desolation Day, when an unknown male-specific virus ravaged the world, degenerating men into savage cannibals called “fleshers.”
Ruben Lobos, is a short-tempered, genetically enhanced soldier, who’s clueless about his abilities since the pathogen struck at the same time of his experiment. He’s interestingly surrounded by a diverse cast of strong female characters in a dying world where women outlast men.
That's the world of Under The Flesh. A gritty blast of sex, horror, sci-fi, and dabbling in various sub-themes like evolution, spirituality, and transhumanism. A zombie apocalypse comic that strays away from the traditional viral story by accentuating a premeditated reason behind the virus, as opposed to leaving the origin of the outbreak as a common question mark.
To a degree, Under the Flesh is kinda Y: The Last Man meets The Walking Dead and Crossed.
Under The Flesh was released as a weekly updated webcomic of free access in March 30th. In order to bring the first issue of their insane post-apocalyptic horror to print, the project is set to launch a Kickstarter campaign on Sunday, July 6."
Under the Flesh is a very well drawn and written story with a new take on the zombie apocalypse. I usually don't do Kickstarter promotions, but even I'm surprised by how good this series looks to be. I just finished reading the first issue, thanks to artist JL Giles, and the only disappointment I had in reading it was that it ended! Seriously, I wished it went on and on. This is the type of comic book that I'd go to my local comic shop for every month to pick up the latest issue. The good news is, if they meet their quota on Kickstarter, there will be more of this zombie awesomeness to go around.
There's about 11 days to go to help them meet their deadline on Kickstarter, so check them out and please consider giving them a little help HERE.
