About

This comic series is based on two friends who open a dispensary after the legalization of medicinal marijuana was approved.  A catastrophic event at a nearby facility flipped their world upside down when people began to turn into crazed, undead mutants. Duke and Tobi accidentally discover that their weed has a strange and unique effect on the zombies. The need for flesh has been replaced with a need for weed, and maybe a Twinkie or two. Follow their adventures as they struggle to stop the spread of the infection and save the human race from extinction.

The project is well on its way. This is a 24 page comic. The story line is written, the artwork is in progress and the release date is scheduled for February 1, 2018.

Risks and challenges

One of the major challenges we faced was finding the correct artist to visually represent the story we are telling. After many hours of research, interviewing and image samples, we have contracted with an artist from California. Eric Yep proved to be the one we were searching for. Not only does his artistic abilities exceed our expectations, his drive, enthusiasm, and understanding of our goals made him the perfect fit.

The distribution of the requested funding is as follows.
30% for the art work
40% printing costs - 2000 copy run
15% for the rewards/merchandise
15% for marketing
