About this project

 Under The Flesh is not over. We have plans for it!

If you wanna contact us or check our latest news, please follow us on Facebook:

Under the Flesh (UTF) is a dark horror story that could be described as a grindhouse mashup of Captain America, Y: The Last Man, and The Walking Dead.

Set in an post-apocalyptic world ravaged by a pathogen that only infect males turning them into savage cannibals, UTF strays away from the traditional viral story by accentuating a premeditated reason behind the plague, as opposed to leaving the origin of the outbreak as a common question mark.

The protagonist, Ruben Lobos, is a genetically enhanced soldier that must face the challanges of a new devastated world, while being clueless about the true potential of his abilities.

UTF features a diverse cast, comprised mostly of female survivors, and a renegade biker, named Jewel, that is yet not aware of the vital role she´ll play in the human race´s struggle for survival...and perhaps salvation.

To fund the printing of issue #2, which is completed, and the art of issue #3. You don´t have to wait for us to finish it: Issue #2 is 100% ready to be sent to print!

The carnal chaos continues with Ravaged Road, where Ruben gears up for an exploratory trek through the surrounding hell-zone, riddled with ferocious fleshers, bloodthirsty bandits, and a pair of ominous ever-watching eyes, to rescue his bitter love.

His heart-thumping journey will bring him tense new encounters, as he soon discovers that as long as there's a machete taped to his hand, the world isn't lost yet!

INDIE COMICS: What is it and what does your help do for unknown creators like us?

Under The Flesh is a 100% creator-owned independent comic. That means we don't receive any financial help from advertising or publishers. It's an unconditional labor of love, blood, sweat, and tears. Our dream is to share this work of passion with all of you. Truth is, we have very limited financial resources to keep UTF going at its current level of quality and consistency.

That´s why right now, you guys have the power to help this project continue to grow. We have the chance to work together and create a great comic book outside the margins of a market dominated by big companies.

Only ten years ago, it was almost impossible for small independent creators like us to self-publish and get their work out to the public. Although today it is still an extremely difficult task, Kickstarter opens up new financing channels that have turned the gloomy tortuous path of self-publishing into a creative and hopeful crowd-publishing reality! Thanks to Kickstarter & your support, skies are the limit!

With your help Under The Flesh is possible!

45% of the pledge funds will be budgeted towards the art J.L. is creating for the project. This allows a talented artist to receive a respectable rate for providing professional grade quality art. 

45% of the pledge funds will be budgeted towards covering reward expenses (production printing, and shipping costs).

10% of the pledge funds will cover Kickstarter and Amazon fees.

Gilbert Deltres - Writer with a highly percolative imagination since childhood. Loves writing comics. His creator-owned project Under The Flesh is his first foray into the comic world as he looks to garner credibility in the craft.

J.L. Giles - Loves painting and drawing comics since childhood. Has done work for IDW, Hasbro, Zenescope, Papercutz, Grindhouse Comics, Top Secret Press, and others. You can check more of his artwork on his BLOG.

Risks and challenges

Under The Flesh #2 is fully completed, so there is no risk on the project not being made or finished. It is ready to be sent to print. We have worked before with the same professional printers, so we expect them to deliver again at the same level of quality and in time.

If there is a delay, all backers will be notified. We keep constant communication with them after the campaign is over.

Any revenue generated after the goal is met will be used to create more UTF pages. We kept our goals realistically reasonable. Simply put: we're dealing with very low risk factors.
