With a swing of his mighty axe, another stretch goal has been torn down! Now all backers will get Paul, the "Hunter from Downunder", a Kickstarter Exclusive Survivor!
Next up, we have a very seductive, if very deadly, bunch of NPCs!
If we reach $1.660k all backers will get 4 figures of the dancer NPC zombie, as well as 4 white bases as a piece of flair for these infected entertainers!
Our gallery of Special Guests now has the honor of receiving an amazing addition: Gipi, the legendary Italian artist, brings to Zombicide: Black Plague a band of Brutal Survivors!
The four Survivors included in the Gipi Special Guest box come from his card game Bruti, which will soon have an English version produced by CoolMiniOrNot: Brutal!
Brutal is a fast-paced hand-management card game where each player takes the role of a fighting pit warrior. Battles are fierce, swift, and deadly. Fighters equip themselves with weapons, shields, armor, and other special items they find on the pit’s muddy, blood-soaked floor. Players attack their opponents with a vast array of strikes and moves, trying to breach their defenses and strike them down with a flurry of chops and slashes. Brutal can be played in one-to-one combat or in teams of two, taking about twenty minutes to tell the stories of brave fighters in a brutal combat to the death!

In 2002 he started collaborating with Coconino Press, publishing his first comic books. His graphic novel "Appunti per una Storia di Guerra" (2005) appeared first in France, then was published in the United States as “Notes for a War Story” by First Second Books, winning the Goscinny Prize for Best Script and proclaimed Best Book at the prestigious Festival International de la bande dessinée d’Angoulême.
In 2006 “Gli innocenti” (The Innocents) earned him an Eisner Award nomination and the Max & Moritz Prize.

In 2013 he returned to comics with the graphic novel "Unastoria".
His work is exhibited in museums and has won him countless honors.
