I was heavily inspired by Steam Powered Giraffe when I made this video!

Now for more information about this project!

It all started in 2007, when I released the Carpe Diem Halloween Special. In that story, I subjected the cast of characters to a zombie apocalypse, and left the readers hanging at the end.

Fans of Carpe Diem know that I also have a spin off comic for adults only called Profiles. What happened to those particular characters? How did they handle the sudden zombie apocalypse?

If the Carpe Mortis Kickstarter project is successful, you gentle readers will find out.

Carpe Mortis is a story that runs parallel to the events of the Carpe Diem Halloween Special, and features the cast of Profiles with a few guest star appearances by a certain barista jackal, his boyfriend, and his little brother. A preview can be found if you know where to look.

And also, have a zombie chibi Kevin as drawn by Redkam.

Zombie Chibi Kevin!
Zombie Chibi Kevin!

Hey! Maybe I'll turn that chibi into a wallpaper image if we make more than 500 bucks! Who knows?

UPDATE #1

So in less than 15 minutes the project is fully funded. Not only that, it's made twice the goal from one backer.

So! Stretch goal time!

$1,000: Zombie Chibi Kevin to pledges of $25+ (UNLOCKED)

$1,500: Parody Poster of a certain television show to pledges of $50+ (UNLOCKED)

Risks and challenges

There is no risk to getting the project complete, because it's already written! Fulfillment will be done by my friends at FurPlanet (http://www.furplanet.com) and Smashwords (http://www.smashwords.com).

Usually I'd say the biggest challenge would be getting the cover done, but it's almost completed.

This project will see the light of day, funded or not.
