Are you male, and are you turned on by naked hot girls who kiss and rub and fondle each other? Then you are exactly the man-meat these lesbian zombies are after!
Lesbian Zombies from Outer Space is a full-color, limited-release comic book series where fantasy becomes a nightmare. This Kickstarter campaign is meant to raise funds for the completion of an apocalyptic zom-com the likes of which you've never seen.
Mature themes, crude humor, and the occasional bared, undead breasts -- you've got to get your hands on Issue #1, to find out how it all begins!
ACE JOHNSON (20s) is a regular guy. He manages a mom-and-pop video store, and he likes porn. GWEN MOFFET (20s) is a lesbian of mediocre looks. She's not too successful with the ladies, and she hates guys who like porn. But when a mysterious SPACE QUEEN crash lands in the woods, the town's women start turning into lesbian zombies, and these unlikely heroes are the only ones left to stop the apocalypse.
While Ace is our protagonist, the real stars of the show are the lesbian zombies themselves. What sets these zombies apart from any you've seen before? In this world, only women can become zombies, and when they do, they are transformed into their idealized sexual self. They will flaunt their sexuality to attract their real victims: men. And while classic zombies are interested in brains, the lesbian zombies are looking to munch on something below the belt...
Like our hero Ace - and many other guys out there -- I am turned on when hot girls make out. The media has increasingly used this fantasy to attract viewers and attention -- and it is clear the target for this titillation is horny men rather than horny lesbians.
I guess one day I sat down to think about it all -- the concept instead of the visuals -- and I realized how absurd this fantasy really is. If girls are into girls, then by definition guys aren't part of the equation.
I came to understand that this male-oriented fantasy turns women into objects with uncontrollable lust and indiscriminate desire. And it is only the male voyeur who can quench their need -- which means that these lustful women are powerless. This fantasy, then, like most fantasies, is one of power.
In addition, much of the imagery in fashion billboards and magazines presents women as frighteningly thin and pale, often with dead, staring eyes suggesting trance or intoxication. These women, then, are again representations of objects without any real will of their own. Or, from another perspective: Zombies.
Why the hell not?
The lecture's over people. Ultimately I wrote this so we can all get a good laugh and have some fun.

Lesbian Zombies from Outer Space is a 100% creator-owned project. With your help, I will be able to cover the production costs of the book as well as print and ship your rewards.
I know that Kickstarter has an enthusiastic and supportive comics community which has recently allowed indie artists and writers to find a more democratic publishing format than the established system. Your pledges are vital to bringing the lesbian-zombie apocalypse to life.
And besides, it's only here on Kickstarter where Ace can make the following plea:
Risks and challenges
The Lesbian Zombies are Coming. Whatever the obstacles, whatever the challenges - they will not be stopped. The first issue is nearly fully drawn and inked, and I am very impressed and thankful that the members of the LZfOS team have been able to work together and collaborate so well. I have already laid out most of the money required to produce this comic because I believe in it, and because I believe it will have an audience.
This will be my first real printing of a comic book issue, and so that will bring about its own challenges. But I have researched the details and the process ahead of time, and we are set for printing at Greko Printing & Imaging.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
