About

Back cover by pro comic artist Adriano Batista.

Zombies are a favorite genre and they're here to stay for some time to come.                                                                                                            

We have put together a book of 13 short stories depicting a unique twist to the zombie craze. Rather than infection beginning through a biological germ of some sort, our zombies have come to be as the result of the sabotage of a high-tech computer chip created to aid in medical research. They, technically, are not dead, but are instead taken over by the mother data base, who doesn't think mankind can rule itself.

And the single instruction she has given them is: infect others. And, of course, eat in order to keep the host body alive.

It's a world-wide epidemic with complete cities and countries falling apart. Those still normal fight to survive in a world they can no longer relate to. Do they stand a chance?

Each story is complete in itself, so there is a different perspective played out each time, with new people and new situations in abundance, action and passion, and more than enough gore to keep every zombie-enthusiast content

Now add to all of that, an ample amount of artwork of title pages and a gallery of even more zombie-fied pleasure. Feast your eyes on failing flesh!

200 pages, 6" x 9"  Color cover, black and white interior. An acknowledgement page(s) of those who pledge - you all deserve the recognition! 

We hope that by getting this book released on Kickstarter, that we stand a better chance of our company becoming better known. We're a small company, with all funds coming from one pocket: mine! That makes our ability to grow very limiting.

Help us grow, and we can promise you more exciting books and comics in the future! Everything is arranged. Our printer is waiting for the go-ahead. The gifts for your generous pledges are just waiting to be packaged and dropped in the mail. Help us get to our goal and watch Fine Line Ink blossom!

Risks and challenges

I have worked with printers on a number of occasions and have not had any serious problems or long delays. A couple days or a week past shipping date? Yes, it's happened, as with everyone else out there at the mercy of problems-beyond-our-control. There's been a lot of hours and money already put in to this project. It's complete, ready to go. I can see NO reason at all for us not to see this to the end.
