A kickstarter campaign has been launched for J.L. Giles and Gilbert Deltres’ comic book series UNDER THE FLESH.
UNDER THE FLESH is an independent comic book that started to take shape about a year ago. After months of drafts, scripting, and conceptual art changes, it was launched as a webcomic in March 30th, 2014. Right now, issue #1 is 100% completed, fully drawn, inked, colored, lettered, and ready for print! Backing Giles and Deltres’ Kickstarter campaign will help them to keep on making more and more pages and update content more frequently!
UTF is set in a post-apocalyptic world. It’s a gritty blast of sex, horror, sci-fi, and dabbles in various sub-themes like evolution, spirituality, and transhumanism. A 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. The pathogen also presents a rather unique trait: it only infects males!
To a degree, Under the Flesh is like a Grindhouse mashup of Captain America, Y: The Last Man, and The Walking Dead.
The duo are looking to raise $3500 and are currently $376 shy of their goal with 11 days to go. The money donated will go to printing issues 1 and 2. Those who choose to donate can receive some cool rewards relating to their donated amount.
