A group of misfits nestled in a small town in the middle of nowhere must band together to survive an Alien/Zombie Apocalypse!
E.L.E. (Extinction. Level. Event.)
International Backers please add $20.00 for shipping the comics and $15.00 for T-shirts.
E.L.E. in a nutshell
This is a story of survival, told through the eyes of seven unique characters. Pandora Falls is a small tourist town nestled deep in the mountains. It's a town where everyone knows each others business and for the most part they all get along. On the day of the town's fall festival, we find everyone is busy with their day-to-day life. Almost nobody notices a glowing green comet crash-land in their own backyard! The events thereafter will change the course of their lives forever...if they survive that is.
Shortly after the comet is discovered, the townsfolk begin to transform into something alien in nature, they become the walking dead! They begin to feed on the fine folks of Pandora.
Through events that you'll only find out by reading the book, you'll learn why this ragtag group of kids are stuck in what was once a peaceful town. Not only are they forced to survive the plague that is blanketing Pandora, but they must battle it to not only ensure their survival...but possibly the entire world's!
What we're trying to do
We want to tell a fun and gripping story that will span 8 issues. We quickly realized that getting the funding to all 8 issues to pay the art team and print all the books and other rewards would be nearly impossible. So we agreed to start out small. There will be TWO phases. This here is phase one. Phase one consists of the first 4 issues of E.L.E., The first half. We felt it would be easier to raise half of what we need to ensure we can keep going on this project, and to put a book out there in a more timely manner! So you as the reader and backer, if you choose to be, get to pick from either reading the book in issue form...or getting the first 4 issues in a trade paperback. However you like to read comic books is fine with us!
Where the money is going
Most of issue #1 has been penciled and about half of it has been inked and colored. (See the above video) So far I've paid for all of this out of my own pocket and to be honest it's pretty expensive. With your help I'll be able to pay the penciler and inker/colorist to work full time on just E.L.E. Along with paying them to work on this book, you will get to choose from a list of rewards in the side column. All we want to do is finish this book and deliver a fun and exciting story to you the reader! We can't do it without your help though. Even if you can't afford to help, if you'd like to support us, please post a link to this page via your Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr page. Anything to help us out!
Who are we?
FRANCISCO QUILEZ (Penciler)
A self taught Freelance Artist who's worked in 2D and 3D animation for over 10 years now. His work has been seen in interactive video games to feature films and television shows. This will be his first independent comic book.
Neko Punch (Inker, Colorist, Letterer)
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Because Neko Punch is inking, coloring, and lettering the comic, the biggest challenge of delivering the product is on her. However, once the project is funded, then she can be compensated and devote all of her attention to the comic full time. So, the sooner E.L.E. gets funded, the sooner Neko can devote all of her time to it.
The only other possible challenge is waiting for the printer to actually print the issues. The plan is to use Ka-Blam and we understand that it can take some time to actually print the issues, we are hoping we can get the printing down outside of the convention season making for a much faster turn around.
