I was recently made aware of a terrific zombie comic by the name of Under the Flesh. I’ve read the first issue and have been officially hooked. They currently have a Kickstarter going to raise funds to print the first issue. If you get a chance, head over to the site, check them out, and consider giving a little money to get this off the ground.
Here’s the press release:
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.
