Check out the Kickstarter for horror survival comic Under The Flesh

July 17th, 2014 by Marc Comments


Independent comic book creator Gilbert Deltres, with artist J.L. Giles, have  launched their first Kickstarter for Zombie Comic UNDER THE FLESH.

It’s been two months since Desolation Day, when an unknown male-specific virus ravaged the world, degenerating men into savage cannibals called “fleshers.”

Ruben Lobos, is a short-tempered, genetically enhanced soldier, who’s clueless about his abilities since the pathogen struck at the same time of his experiment. He’s interestingly surrounded by a diverse cast of strong female characters in a dying world where women outlast men.

That’s the world of Under The Flesh. A gritty blast of sex, horror, sci-fi, and dabbling in various sub-themes like evolution, spirituality, and transhumanism. A zombie apocalypse comic that strays away from the traditional viral story by accentuating a premeditated reason behind the virus, as opposed to leaving the origin of the outbreak as a common question mark.

Under The Flesh was released as a weekly updated webcomic of free access in March 30th. In order to bring the first issue of their insane post-apocalyptic horror to print, the project is set to launch a Kickstarter campaign on Sunday, July 6.

I was sent the first issue for review, and I have to say, I loved it from start to finish. Deltres knack for penning dialogue instantly won me over. Reading Ruben was like listening to one of the homies talk to me. It’s not just a day, it’s a long ass day. I dig the subtly between the two. Giles art is also a sight to behold. Under The Flesh is full of intense themes and the art works wonderfully to convey that to the reader. Don’t just take my word for it. Check it out for yourself at You can also check them out on Twitter @Under_TheFlesh as well as on Facebook If you dig what you are reading head on over to the Kickstarter here and help these guys bring their book to print.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
