10/27 - Stretch Goal #1 - Vinyl Sticker UNLOCKED!!
We are getting close to the first stretch goal! When we hit $750, all physical backers will get a badass ZED weatherproof vinyl sticker!! Next stretch goal unlocks at $1,000!
This limited edition of ZED will only be printed once! It's the only time this edition with this cover will ever be available on Kickstarter. This 52 page collection includes both issue 1 and 2 of ZED in black and white format with a few extra goodies in the back. Although this is not new content, this is an extremely limited edition of what we have created so far, and it's the only way to get both issues in black and white.
It lasted three years, but the outbreak is over. Most of the infected have been isolated or destroyed. The vaccine was created on day 900, and now life is getting back to normal. Cities are repopulating, and there is a long-awaited sense of calm throughout the country.
The PH-virus was relatively short lived thanks to Samuel Grace, genius scientist and the creator of the PH vaccine. His vaccine can prevent the spread of the virus, but cannot reverse it. Fortunately, Sam’s vaccine stopped the PH-virus before it decimated the world population, but the vaccine did not come without a cost. For three years Sam experimented on patient after patient, subject after subject. Creating the vaccine carried a cost of both human and post-human life.
One such test subject was Zed.
UPDATE 10/16 - ADD-ONS!!
Looking for more spooky or mind-bending stories? Pick up Nook or Alter-Life by adding the respective amount to your pledge! All you have to do is add $20 or $25 for each book, then send me a direct message letting me know which book you want.
Nook Hardcover Edition: $20. A WWII ghost story inspired by Pan's Labyrinth and Coraline. A family escapes WWII Germany only to discover their new home on the border of France is haunted by a dark past and a cat named Nook.
Alter-Life Hardcover Edition: $25. A 200-page Full-Color Hardcover Graphic Novel! In a world of seemingly infinite realities, Jake is on a quest to find his dead wife and daughter.
If we just hit our goal we will at least get an amazing collected edition of the first 2 issues, but the hope is to help this series stay alive. I really want to keep ZED going, but we've struggled to find an audience in previous campaigns. This edition is being put together to help raise money to pay for some of the artwork for Issues 3-4. If we raise enough here, we will be able to come back in 2020 with new content and potentially a complete volume 1!!
Below, there are a bunch of awesome original art pieces available from ZED artist, Katrina Kunstmann. I implore you to look through them all. If you find something you love, make sure you grab it quickly. These are one-of-a-kind pieces at unbeatable prices!!
All funds raised here will be exclusively used for paying for printing of this limited edition print run and paying for shipping to backers. Any funding rasied beyond what is needed for printing and shipping will be used to for art for issues 3 and 4 of ZED.

Risks and challenges
I have completed 10 other successful campaigns. I know how things work. The only challenge I foresee is the fact that this is not new content. This is a special edition of the 2 issues that have already been released. I hope we can find some new readers and kickstart this series back to life!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
