August 9, 2022, (Missoula, MT) — We want to tell you about a friend of ours: Mr. Guy: Zombie Hunter.
Unfortunately, he’s been cursed to live with a sassy spectral sidekick in the flesh of his rotting zombie bite until he dies…and becomes undead. It’s not a great arrangement, TBH.
To save himself, this half-goblin, half-fool’s gotta save the whole dang world…starting September 6 on Kickstarter, in Mr. Guy: Zombie Hunter #1-2, A Fantasy Zombie Comedy Comic!
|In Act 1: To Save Himself—the original zom-com caper—our reluctant hero was infected with the ZMB virus. But rather than un-dead-ifying, he got saddled with a skeletal sidekick named Spooky, who helped him run for his life…er…fight ferociously against a horde of horrifying, hungry shamblers, a be-dead-ed barkeep, and even an unholy cow!
Written by Jayel Draco, Act 1 features cover art by Sonne, and eight-page chapters illustrated by Jayel Draco (PACK, Tracy Queen), Walter Ostlie (Metalshark Bro, Ghost Bats), Diana Camero (Guts), and Jacey Chase (Far Away, Junction).
|Now, in Act 2: The Hecking Heck of It, Mr. Guy and Spooky—who comes with neato powers—must face all the hecks in Heck with Dante, a doom swamp, a crankypants orisha, Elder Gods, a seriously gnarly necromancer, and even the Dark Lord’s darkest hole! Even worse, they have to spend another whole act together as they try to cure the zombie apocalypse and break the curse that binds them together.
Written by Jayel Draco, Act 2 features cover art by stevieraedrawn (Weatherwax Coven), and eight-page chapters illustrated by James Groeling, Daniel Hooker (Line of Ruin, Hit!), Michel Abstracto (Tales of Intoxica, TarMucks: Origins), and Wren Rios…plus a stretch-goal bonus comic illustrated by “Skooba” Steve Myers(Battle for Ozellberg, The Zaidura Chronicles)!
|In these first two issues of the series, readers will be treated to:
- 108 gorgeous, full-color pages
- Writing by Oneshi Press’s own Jayel Draco
- 8-page illustrated chapters from eight different artists
- Stunning cover art and guest art in each issue
- Lots of aspics. (Don’t worry, we’ll cover that in the book.)
- One tree planted for every backer via an official partnership with OneTreePlanted.org!
“Mr. Guy’s ongoing journey continues to lampoon the things we love most in pop culture,” says Jayel Draco, creator of Mr. Guy and co-founder of Oneshi Press. “The story delivers laugh after laugh as it develops inside jokes with his audience […] while we grow together with our ne’er-do-well half-goblin BAE.”
For fans of The Evil Dead, Shaun of the Dead, and Zombieland, Mr. Guy: Zombie Hunter #1-2 will launch September 6 and run until October 6. Follow the pre-launch page now to be notified the second it
