IF YOU WERE TOO LATE TO GET IN ON THE FUNDING...PICK A REWARD AND PAYPAL JPIGZ2003@AOL.COM

"Pignataro and Smith have made a fan out of me. I've never been much of a comic, or graphic novel enthusiast, but I am now. I highly recommend Gods of Men to those who want to add graphic novels to their Kindle library." ~ The Kindle Book Review

"What a delight to find a graphic novel with not only a great story but outstanding art work to accompany it." ~ Whiskybusiness

"
It was the best of times it was the worst of times...who am I kidding it was the worst of times for these kids...GREAT book!" ~ Michael

"This is NOT just another WALKING DEAD clone, this is what the walking dead SHOULD BE." ~Jackson Rogers

STRETCH REWARD: ALL 60 DOLLAR AND ABOVE BACKERS WILL RECIEVE A SIGNED ORIGINAL, YET SLIGHTLY CRAPPY DRAWING BY JOE-THE WRITER! Hey, atleast I own it...AND A SIGNED ORIGINAL SCRIPT PAGE!!!!!!!!Thank you all.

Issues 1-3 of GODS OF MEN are out on Amazon. Out of 30 paid reviews 28 are 5 star! We need money to get the word out there through advertising and to finish the series proper with an endgame of 150 page color print hardcover awesomeness. If funding gets alittle crazy like these $1,000,000.00 dlr plastic armbands you see on here...we might just have to make ourselves an hour long extremely legit animated movie!

CONTACT US FOR INTERNATIONAL RATES:

EVERYONE enjoys previews before they purchase something right? Hell, that's why I was dumb enough to see GHOST RIDER 2...the previews were great, LOL!  If anyone is thinking "why the "F" should I back this?"...email us at pignataroj@yahoo.com and we will send you the script containing the storyline of issues 1-10. This is my chicken scratch that Dave draws off of. If you like it, PLEASE, come back and donate, so our baby can be done proper and doesn't become A SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE.

We made this series because 1. I(Dave) always loved drawing comics and 2. I (Joe) love making stories using a consesus of what works(colored pages and informing readers how the apocalypse came about right out of the gate and not in issue... 1000??) and what doesn't, like taking out idiotic senseless behavior characters do (Carl never staying in the F'ING house) and leaving in just the BAD-ASSness.  The kids in this series are the only ones left to fight...so they aren't tools. These kids torture for information, as in taking off fingers! They are growing up in a harsh, violent world without adults. All they know is death and fighting to survive, so they are bound to be alittle psychotic.

SO WHAT'S THIS STORY ABOUT ANYWAY???

All the prophecies were right - the world as we know it comes to an end in 2012 with the arrival of the prophesized Wormwood comet. The military dispatches warheads to annihilate the comet. When the comet explodes in the atmosphere it causes a mysterious black rain to fall across the globe. The entire adult population of the planet quickly transforms into Wraiths, grotesque former humans out to devour uninfected humans. What are these creatures? Does the military know more they they let on? Can children save the world?

Follow young Jack Foster, his trauma induced psychotic ten-year old brother Mason, and baby Lucy as they struggle to survive in a world of Gods and men.


WARNING: These dead do more than just "walk."
