In the aftermath of the first atomic bomb drop on Hiroshima, an elite squad of Marines is ordered to infiltrate a Nagasaki hospital. Their mission: discover the secret of a new biological weapon. With the next bomb racing their way, the team will have to remain “swift, silent, deadly,” to survive hordes of infected locals who hunger for human flesh. As the clock ticks down and the horrible truth of the weapon is revealed, the soldiers will be forced to decide if completing their mission is even worth the cost.

Z-DAY is an original graphic novel available as an 108-page standard trade paperback or an 118-page hardcover Kickstarter exclusive with bonus content. All print copies will include a complimentary digital edition.

Risks and challenges

This is my fourth campaign in addition to several others I've helped on.

The Z-Day graphic novel is completed and we have printed proofs in hand. All that remains is printing and shipping backer copies. Depending on stretch goals, we may also have to make stickers, buttons, and patches. This may add additional time, but hopefully not too long.

Our goal continues to be to ship rewards as soon as possible and deliver a great product. Thanks for your continued support.
