AiZ #1 is the beginning of a brand new kind of zombie comic series, set in a world where an evil corp. has found a way to cure death...
What is Zombie A.C.R.E.S.?
Zombie A.C.R.E.S. is an interconnected series of stories focusing on a small group of well-developed characters who are all going through a unifying incident: an isolated outbreak of zombies in Seattle. Since William Lohman came out as a thinking, feeling member of the walking dead on national television and revealed the existence of Zombie A.C.R.E.S. (Animated Corpses Reintegration Experimental Subdivision, a top secret zombie halfway house of sorts), zombies have moved out of the world’s nightmares and into real life. Roslun Global, the creator of the drug designed to make death obsolete, is disturbingly silent on the subject. Anonymous claims that the drug is meant for the betterment of mankind have not been substantiated by Roslun, nor have the claims that the research has potential military application been refuted. But make no mistake, Richard Roslun, the company’s CEO, has everything under control, and will do whatever it takes to stay in control, even if it means silencing the innocent family of one escaped victim.
The AiZ: Alice in Zombieland Project
AiZ: Alice in Zombieland is going to be an eBook and a five issue comic series that centers around two members of that family: One abducted by Roslun’s security force and subjected to the horrors behind the Zombie A.C.R.E.S. fence, the other fighting against all odds to get into the facility and bring her little sister out alive. How far into hell would you go to save someone you love? What concessions would you make to the few for the safety of the many? Join Alice, her sister Gee, and a traumatized man named Sam as they discover the secrets and the monsters that reside in Zombie A.C.R.E.S.!
There will be three different versions of this very first issue of AiZ: Alice in Zombieland. One will be sold exclusively through our already running Online Merch Store and is referred to as the 'Regular Edition'. The second version is the only one we are requesting funding for. This is the 'ZomBcon Edition' and will have the limited print run of 200 issues only. We are calling it the ZomBcon issue because we are launching the Alice in Zombieland event at the largest zombie convention in America - the Seattle ZomBcon in October. The third version is an extremely limited edition called the 'Backer Edition'. This version is only available to those at certain backer levels plus ten for the creators. All of the limited editions will be sequentially numbered and feature different covers.
The money we are requesting will go for the printing of the 200 limited edition ZomBcon issues, the fee for a booth at ZomBcon, few promotional items for our booth, and any fees associated with this fundraising effort. Any funds over our goal will go to purchase items from our online shop to sell at ZomBcon. None of the money will go to pay any member that is working on AiZ. This is strictly a passion project that each and every person working on it feels very strongly about.
