EXCLUSIVE to Kickstarter! Trigger Mortis is a 64 page Hardcover thrill-ride combining the action and human drama of Spaghetti Westerns, and the tension and horror of Zombie films.

1876: on the eve of Colorado gaining statehood, rancher Sarah Mc'Clintock has hired a pair of Pinkertons to protect her family's ranch from the ever present threat of Cattle Rustlers.

 She soon finds herself caught in a love triangle between her old flame, Deputy Dylan Hawkes, and mysterious Gunhand Seamus O'Donnell.

Until a zombie plague comes crashing to Earth, spreading like wildfire and threatening  the unsuspecting citizens.

Can the living band together to defend the town of Devil's Lantern from the army of the walking dead?

*Trigger Mortis is intended for Mature Audiences- Violence/Strong Language. 

Thank You for your support!

My name is Derec Donovan and I've been drawing Comics Professionally for Marvel, DC, and Image comics for 25 years and this is my 2nd Crowdfunding effort through Kickstarter, I'm raising money for the Printing and Shipping of my first Hardcover Graphic Novel TRIGGER MORTIS; this project is a labor of love combining my love of Comics, Genre Movies, and long form Fiction, I hope my love and enthusiasm comes through and you enjoy reading this Graphic Novel as much as I enjoyed making it, Thank You for your support!

Risks and challenges

The Challenges with this project include doing all of the jobs associated with making comics (writing, drawing, coloring, and lettering) as well as the printing of a hardcover book, I've planned to overcome these obstacles by giving myself ample time to complete the work and heavily researching Printers.
