Hello everyone! I'm Daniel Whitfield, creator of The Plagued, you can find me on Instagram as @LifeofaWhitfield and I'm simply trying to raise money to print my comic book. It's already done, so really this is just a pre-order that'll help make printing more affordable. 

The Plagued is a 158 page zombie anthology all done by one artist over the course of 7 years. I essentially did one story a year, and then spent a year getting everything ready for print while I worked on all all the other projects I've got going on. There are 6 stories in the book. The bulk of the book is a 4 issue series called Lives of the Dead that follow the spread of the zombie virus from the time a zombie is infected until it spreads the virus to its first victim. Also included in the book are two short one shot stories taking place in the same undead infested universe. Funds for the Kickstarter are all going directly towards the books first printing and fulfillment of Kickstarter Rewards. 

Now be warned, the Plagued was conceived at a 24 Hour Comic Book Day event. I didn't really think about where the concept would take me. At the time I just wanted to draw some zombies, gore, and have fun. As a result the story gets real dark, real fast. Please hang in there. As my art gets better so does my storytelling I promise. If blood and guts and exploding heads isn't your thing, well maybe this book isn't really for you. It is definitely not a book for everyone. That being said The Plagued isn't the only thing I've got going on. If you dig horror and want to see the other stuff I'm working on, please join me on Instagram. You can scroll through my feed and see if I have something else you might be into that I'll be releasing soon.

 Zombies aren't the only thing I do, but they are where I got started. That's why I'm excited to finally have The Plagued out there for everyone who wants to read it. Not because it's the best thing I'll ever do, but because I had a lot of fun making it. And also because of how proud I am of how far I've come as a creator. I learned so much while making this book, and I've grown a lot as a person since it started. Some days I can't believe I finally finished it, and others I can't believe it took me so long. Either way you'll all get to read it soon, and I for one can't wait to have it on my bookshelf.     

Risks and challenges

The only real concern I have is international shipping, therefore all physical copies of the book will only be available to be shipped within the US. I apologize to those interested in receiving the book outside the country, once the Kickstarter rewards are fulfilled the book will be available for purchase from me directly and my publisher for the book Forbidden Panel. I'll be happy to ship it to you when we will be able to calculate the appropriate shipping costs on a case by case basis.
