THE PROJECT: 

Lucky is a 100-page graphic novel that explores horror tropes by telling a zombie story from the less human side. It tells the story of Mack, a garbage man whose life is changed forever when his typical route is disrupted by a zombie outbreak. Unable to fight off the zombies, Mack is bitten and becomes one himself. The story continues as we follow Mack on his journey as a newly turned zombie.

The idea for Lucky was conceived after watching a horde of zombie movies, mainly the ones by Romero. I realized that there are few, if any, zombie stories told from the perspective of a zombie. All zombie fiction centers on a small group of survivors trying to combat the force that is the undead. So I set out to write a story told through the eyes of zombie. 

The project is written by Jerry Willoughby and illustrated by Zane DeGaine.

The first 5 pages of the book can be found at luckythecomic.com

Zane has been the artist on Mondo Atomic: Plan 9, available on Graphicaly. More work from Zane can be found at degainedesigns.com.

WHERE YOU COME IN:

This project is going to be drawn over the next year and will take up the majority of Zane's time. The money will allow Zane to devote the time needed to work on this project over the next year, as well as cover the production costs of the book. We plan on having the book completely done by the end of 2012 and will begin the publishing process shortly after.

INCENTIVES:

In addition to the incentives on the right, everyone who contributes will get their name in our special thanks page in the finished copy of the book, both physical and digital versions.
