This comic idea came one day as I was driving back to work with a coworker from lunch.  I saw a guy dressed as a CELL PHONE in 90 degree heat.  I thought to myself how bad of a day this guy was having...  After brief pause, I imagined it could be worse.  That is where the idea for WORST DAY EVER came.

Worst Day Ever! 

It's the zombie apocalypse, but for the main protagonist of the story Charlie, rent is still due and bills still need to be paid.

Worst Day Ever tells the tale of Charlie and his attempt to pull himself out of his spiral of bad luck during the not so apocalyptic zombie outbreak.

Charlie is a guy plagued by bad luck. He works at a hot dog shop called Bob's Big Dogs swinging a sign while dressed in a hot dog costume, all while dodging zombies.   

Issue one lays out the state of the still functioning zombie infested city, his relationship with his best friend Bill the heavy metal redneck, and his love for the cute goth girl barista. We learn there are two types of zombies, Slackjaws and Ragers. Slackjaws harmlessly wander the city sometimes stuck in the same routine they were in before they were infected. Ragers are full on aggressive bite you in face angry zombies. 

Production is currently underway for the first issue of Worst Day Ever.   We have a full production team that will be together for this 12 issue mini series.  The concept was birthed by artist Luke Stone.  Writer Westley Schomer has the entire arc scripted and ready for production.  Luke has begun pencils and inks on the project and colorist Patrik Mock is adding colors.  

The first 8 pages are available in a FREE PREVIEW comic at local shops and conventions.  The full issue will be released just in time for HALLOWEEN 2016.   

The funds from this campaign will go to pay for final production costs and first issue prints. This title is now being self published through a creator CO-OP called Tenacious Comics.  many resources from this collaboration are helping produce the work.  However, we are still a little shy of our goal.

Given the dark nature of the story, we have gone with a lighter style of art.  We brainstormed for sometime to determine the look and feel of this book.  As you can see in these first 8 pages we have captured a certain "mood".  Enjoy!

Risks and challenges

Much of the potential risk has been dealt with and addressed already. Our biggest challenge will simply be distributing the book to all of the outlets that are currently interested in it. Your funding will get us to the point that we can finish the last few pages and begin distributing the issue with our current outlets.
