The Sugarpocalypse is nigh, and it's up to Clea Brown to stop the saccharine hoard of the undead and defeat the evil Yumzy Corporation.
When a brand new candy bar starts turning people into zombies in the small town of Sweetooth, it is up to Clea brown, and her ragtag group of friends, to stop the EVIL Yumzy corporation from reigning down the Sugarpocalypse!
Once Clea just wanted to escape from her town, now she wants to take it back! And she'll do so a la lollipop - the perfect tool with which to behead the undead.
My husband and I seriously wanted to make a comic book. This comic book. So, 3 days after we were married in July, we got cracking. For two solid months we worked every single night and weekend, David writing and me (Sarah), illustrating, to bring the first issue to life in time for New York Comic Con ('cause go big or go home, right?)!! The first issue made its premiere at NYCC on October 11-14th in the small press section and was a huge success! We sold out of our entire first run by the top of Sunday! We were overwhelmed by the number of people who came back to our booth after reading the comic book to tell us how much they enjoyed it, or who brought friends back to our booth.
We are SO excited to be launching this book and will finish out the first story arc in six issues which will culminate in a graphic novel. This first issue has been a labor of love, time, and funds, so to continue this sacchariferous story we are asking for your support. Plus, by helping not only will you enable the continuation of High Fructose Zombies, but enable us to make all kinds of cool stuff for rewards, which just doubles the fun! And fun is what we are all about, for you, for us, for everyone!
Who you'll be reading about: The Crew of High Fructose Zombies!
....And what does this comic look like? Check it.

Pulling off the first issue in two months was a challenge in an of itself, so how do we plan on bringing you the whole first graphic novel made up of 6 issues. Through dedication and hard work. When we started this project I looked at my husband and said, "Do you want to be the type of people who talk about doing something, or the people who do it?" This has and will continue to be our guiding principle. We have worked out a strong division of labor, David writing, me storyboarding, penciling and inking, him lettering while I work on posters and related artwork (going forward, your special rewards). Working in tandem in this manner we effectively optimize our time and individual strengths to bring you the best comic book in the time allotted.
Going forward, and on everything you receive the name will be changed from Hi-Fructose Zombies to High-Fructose Zombies to make sure that there is no confusion with Hi Fructose Magazine, which was not our intention. We just want to keep everyone up to date. The logo will stay the same, just with an additional "gh". Thanks for your understanding!
Not a problem, just add $3 to your $5.00 pledge, $5 to your $25 pledge, add $15 to your $50, $75 and $100 pledge and add $50 to your $250 and $400 pledge. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or issues.
