The Zombie Game by Pablo Exequiel Ayala, Emily McGuiness, & Dan Bridges

Kickstarter

What it is: A full length, zombie, horror, graphic novel inspired by the best of the horror genre.

What’s included: A fully finished, 134 page, full-color, graphic novel is a perfect marriage of our love of horror and comics! We’re all as much fans of Night of the Living Dead, as we are of Marie Severin’s work at EC comics. We cheered through Train to Busan (no way it needs a remake) and felt our heart beat faster watching 28 Days Later. THE ZOMBIE GAME is all that love of horror and comics, distilled into a story about outcasts and broken people just like us. 

Are there additional rewards? Plenty of add-ons in addition to these fun tiers.

APEX #1: By Benjamin Cook, Clovisbatebola, and Chuck Pineau

What it is: At first glance, Mohini looks like a sexy young deviant making a living as a bartender at a fetish bar… but things are not as they seem. She sees in the dark, hears like a cat, and smells like a bloodhound. Her mouth is full of razor-sharp canines. She is faster, stronger, smarter, and more capable than we will ever be.

And we’re her favourite food.

APEX is a story about humans, animals, and the strange and wonderful places where the lines blur between them. This inaugural issue will introduce you to the urban ecosystem of Sector J and its deviant creatures, and give you a glimpse into the mind of a predator.

This story is just beginning – the first arc is planned for five issues – and we promise you a tale that is as gripping as it is gruesome. We don’t want to give too much away, but I assure you: this comic isn’t your standard chewable-vitamin, good-and-evil power fantasy. An investment in APEX is an investment in something both beautiful and terrifying, just like Nature herself, and we won’t disappoint.

What’s Included: 25 pages of sci-fi noir in the ghetto of the future…

What it is: All over the world, millions of people experience a wide range of mental health issues – depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, and more. Sadly, their struggles are often ignored and misunderstood, even mocked. Through the Labyrinths of the Mind is a graphic novel anthology from Cloudscape Comics that gives these issues a voice, presenting 11 stories about mental health from a wide range of comic creators.

What’s Included: The book will be 6″x9″ and approximately 115 pages long with a softcover. It will be printed on natural-toned enviro-paper in stark black & white to capture the stark experiences of the contributors. Its matte cover is designed by Simpsons/Sparks! cartoonist Space Coyote (Nina Matsumoto), and presents an unfolding labyrinth in which the reader can wander to visit the psyche of each cartoonist. Each individual story is introduced through the discovery of a new room of the labyrinth — illustrated by Witching Hours creator Hannah Myers — in which can be found a unique object of special significance.

Are there additional rewards?
