About

Do you know what my favorite part of a Zombie movie or story is? Let me tell you, it is the beginning. It is when I get to see the characters very first reactions to a Zombie outbreak.  One minute you are going about your normal daily life, and the next it's total chaos. No time to think about whats going on, just time to survive! Now see, for me, The problem with Zombie movies and even the great comic book Walking Dead story line now days, is that time eventually has to pass to progress the story.  We get away from that beginning outbreaking moment of chaos.  This Book's special format allows us to stay in that moment for the entire graphic novel. The Community is a collection of short stories presented in a Canterburry Tales format that shows us each survivors first moments in the Zombie apocalypse. Each character has survived for 5 years to make it to the Community and tell their own tale in their own words. The Firefighter, The Butcher, The Teacher, The Bus Driver, The Soccer Mom, The Town Drunk…all have unique stories to tell, and this collection takes us to that very start.  The visual format of the book is set up in the style of a children's book.  Each short story will be accompanied either by a page or two of pinup style art, showing a scene from their story, while some characters will have a short comic style scene following along with the story.  As of today at launch, Artwork is about 80% done for the book, with stories about 90% done.  Funds raised will be for printing and publishing cost, and shipping for the graphic novel, and rewards, as well as the Kickstarter and Amazon payments.  Here is a brief sampling of some of the Amazing art completed so far.  Each story has had its own artist to bring the uniqueness of each character to the reader.  Many different art styles and mediums are used, as you can see below.  Can you guess their occupations during this outbreak?

Risks and challenges

Potential risk are fairly few, as the book is almost complete. Printing and shipping issues may arise, but do not seem to present an obstacle to overcome at this time. This is our first project, so some learning will be done as we go and we thank you for your time.
