Austin Janowsky – Creator/Writer of the series “Zombies We’re Human Too” will be coming out with Volume 2 of the series! The crowdfunding campaigns (Kickstarter and Indiegogo) will be launched on June 10, 2020! Zombies, We’re Human Too Volume 2 Kickstarter Link
With the successful Kickstarter for Volume 1 and the huge interest in the series from comic fans and comic creators alike, it was decided to make a second volume and continue the story of the three kids. Christoper, Stacey, and Juan.
They decided to try and leave the building by crossing from roof to roof using a ladder that was left. From there they try to make their way down and out to safety but are swarmed again and forced into the storage cellar that has been made into a safe room. With bars on the cellar windows and zombies trapping them in the room, they try and makeup stories to calm all of them down. Question is… who’s safe room is this and what if they come back?

I am a Horror NUT! Always have been since I can remember. Horror Comics, and especially Horror films! I would read Tales of Suspense and Horror, Werewolf by Midnight, Tales from the Crypt and Weird Horror Tales! Friday the 13th, The Think, Evil Dead 1 & 2, Peter Jackson’s Dead Alive and Rawhead Rex. I could sit for hours watching them. It’s what gave me the bug to be an actor, writer, director, and producer!!!
I started acting around 1995 in a weird sketch comedy troupe called the Sidewalk Cracks. It was a weekly sketch comedy show that aired every Monday night at 10 PM on TCI Cable Channel 5 in New Port Richey. That lead me to improv, which lead me to start Improv specific troupes like Beat the Dead Horse, The Charming Hooligans, and The Caffeine Kids. We did Horror based improve skits and scenes, helping me hone my acting skills. All the while, I auditioned my butt off every week for years, and EVENTUALLY landed Stranger Things Season 2.
I had been in films before. short films feature films and commercials but nothing compared to Stranger Things. As an actor, working on the set of Stranger Things was not only surreal but an eye-opening experience in ways for directing as well. The feeling being on set for one second compared to one day or one week is the same. Exhilarating. Stepping up to the plate as an actor on a show like that changes your view on everything. I wouldn’t change that experience for anything!
The same can be said for me as to when Austin suggested I write for a comic book series that he was putting together; Zombies We’re Human Too. Volume 1of the series came out last year after it was successfully crowdfunded and he wanted me to write a story for Volume 2.
I loved the concept of telling stories about the people before and how they became zombies. The fact that the stories are being made up by kids to help keep the youngest of them calm is a fantastic play on the Zombie Genre! My mind was blown. So I wrote Slim & Tims Junkyard, a hilarious story about a Jimmy, a survivalist that has stayed that way by being safe and not taking chances. He also has the habit of looking for change in phone booths, vending machines… washing machines. Who knew jingling of coins could be so loud! Austin is planning on running a Kickstarter campaign for Volume 2 in June 2020 with reward tiers made especially for Retailers and fans alike!
Finally, I get to be involved in a comic! My life’s dream. So, between this and Stranger Things, I have no goals left! Yaaaaa!!!! Retirement.
