FUBAR is just another good old fashioned World War II zombie anthology brought to you by a large army of Small-Press Commandos.
“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself… and ZOMBIES!!” -Franklin Delano Roosevelt
The 35 Small-Press Commandos that contributed to FUBAR: Empire of Rising Dead need your help getting this anthology to the printer! In return for your hard earned money, we offer graphic novels, custom artwork, zombie shooting targets AND our unwavering gratitude.
Hello! My name is Jeff McComsey and I’m the editor in chief of the World War II zombie anthology called FUBAR.
This anthology chronicles a zombie outbreak right in the middle of World War II, just prior to the d-day invasion. Originally FUBAR started out as a small side project of mine and like side projects tend to do, it took on a life of its own and then took over mine.
We released our first 188 page volume last year Entitled FUBAR: European theater of the Damned. We set the 15 stories of volume one in the European theater of WWII. Classic zombie Nazi smashing fun for the whole family in that volume.
The 20 stories that comprise FUBAR volume 2: Empire of the Rising Dead all take place exclusively in the Pacific theater of World War II. Replace zombie Nazis with Zombie Kamikazes and add in a helping of crazy zombie Jarheads and you get the idea.
Both volumes are stand alone and don't need to be read in order so choose whichever volume strikes your World War II zombie smashing fancy... OR you could get both.
Volume 2 clocks in at 194 pages and contains the work of over 35 writers, artists, letterers, and is 100% complete and ready to go.
The logistics are all locked in except for one important part. We're here to ask you ladies and gents for a little help getting this second volume off to the printer.
If funding is successful we intend to use the money exclusively for the offset print run of FUBAR Volume 2: Empire of the rising Dead.
There's a lot of the custom art and sketching we only ever get to do at conventions and signings like: our choose your own historical/fictitious WW II character and we draw them in the front page square of your newly purchased book sketch. We're very excited about sharing these type of pledge rewards with any supporters who purchase Volume 1 or Volume 2.
AND ZOMBIE SHOOTING TARGETS?
Below you will find links to examples of some of our pledge rewards including a gallery of Steve Becker's Zombie Combat targets that you get to choose from for those specific rewards featuring an 11x17 print. You will also find links to view some of the custom zombie sketches we do in the front pages of both Volume 1 and 2. We've also included links to the zombie portraits and the Medal of Honor portrait so you guys get a better idea of what we mean in the pledge rewards.
You guys are awesome...
In the comics community there's always talk about whether or not the medium's day has come and gone. Looking around at the caliber of new creators and projects In the Small-Press community alone as well as remarkable outlets like Kickstarter, We feel like there's never been a better time to make comics.
This series contains inspired work by over three dozen writers, artists, letterers and is to date the project of which I am most proud to have been a part of. Your support of Indie comics in general and FUBAR in particular makes it possible for these project to exist and thrive. I know I can speak for all the creators involved when I say thank you. Thanks you for your time and for your support.
Any additional funds will be spent on more books and be well appreciated. Our goal is to get as large a print run as we can for Volume 2 to avoid costly reprints in the future. If we hit some obscene number, then we will get FUBAR central Command together and discuss a strategy for taking this show on the road and use those funds to attend more cons.
We ask that our international supporters add an additional $10 for shipping and we'll throw in a little something extra for you guys.
