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 undertheflesh.com. You can also check them out on Twitter @Under_TheFlesh as well as on Facebook www.facebook.com/undertheflesh.comic. If you dig what you are reading head on over to the Kickstarter here and help these guys bring their book to print.
