After a successful campaign for issue #1 on Kickstarter back in August, JL Giles and Gilbert Deltres, the creators of UNDER THE FLESH have launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the printing of issue #2 and the art of #3. The issues will eventually complete a six issue story arc.
Set in an post-apocalyptic world ravaged by a pathogen that only infect males, turning them into savage cannibals, UTF strays away from the traditional viral story by accentuating a premeditated reason behind the plague, as opposed to leaving the origin of the outbreak as a common question mark.
The protagonist, Ruben Lobos, is a genetically enhanced soldier that must face the challanges of a new devastated world, while discovering the true potential of his abilities.
To a degree, Under the Flesh is like a Grindhouse mashup of Captain America, Y: The Last Man, and The Walking Dead.
The carnal chaos continues with Ravaged Road, where Ruben gears up for an exploratory trek through the surrounding hell-zone, riddled with ferocious fleshers, bloodthirsty bandits, and a pair of ominous ever-watching eyes, to rescue his bitter love.
His heart-thumping journey will bring him tense new encounters, as he soon discovers that as long as there’s a machete taped to his hand, the world isn’t lost yet!
As always, rewards are available for people who donate, with pledgers able to bag themselves a PDF copy of the comic for just $5! You can find out more on the Kickstarter campaign
