Flesh eating monsters and super-heroes. Its a win-win.
About this project
This project is called “The Infected” and it’s my first venture into creating my own comic book. The story follows Jacob and his sister Chloe as the wake up in the middle of a quarantined city filled with a disease that turns people into flesh eating monsters. I know what you’re thinking. Same old flesh eating zombie horror comic. However, the difference in this story is that only the super-hero’s or anyone with the meta-human gene is infected with this disease. If I had to put a likeness to this story it would have to be like the walking dead only with super-hero’s.
I have been working on this web comic project myself for about two years now and with its artist Dave Mims for about a year or so. I have put up a website to show it as a web comic and completed the first two chapters of the storyline. However, in the middle of the third chapter I have run out of money to pay my artist. Feel free to check out the story’s first couple chapters at www.unknownkomics.com
Why I need your help
The reason I need your help for this project is that after believing I would be able to fund this project myself, all the funds have dried up. The main reason for this is that my wife and I were expecting our third child and after it was all over we ended up with triplets. (now a family of 7) Now as you can imagine money has gotten a lot tighter in our happy baby filled household so I’m trying to get just enough money to compensate my artist for his time and complete the first volume of this web comic.
Anything over the allotted amount will be put towards the website that host’s The Infected and printing cost’s of each issue and hopefully a graphic novel. I also will be using PAY IT FORWARD.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
