Kickstarter Watch: Crude Awakening – A Zombie Apocalypse

Robbie Mack and the creative crew at Vigilante Comix are raising funds for the printing and distribution of the first issue of Crude Awakening, a fun and freaky trilogy of terror!

This first issue of Crude Awakening is a 20 page full-colour comic book of standard size. (6.63″ wide by 10.24″ tall) It’s a contemporary spin on the zombie genre with action, suspense and violence. Written by Robbie Mack, illustrated by Dario Carrasco and coloured by Natalia Nesteranko. The zombies in Crude Awakening were inspired by the horror feature film, Peelers, with permission from the Director, Sevé Schelenz.

Bryn Walker, is the unlucky police officer that first discovers one of the Shaman’s victims. She is called to investigate a burned-out house, inhabited by a homeless teenage boy and his infected girlfriend. After narrowly escaping a violent altercation with the zombified teenage girl, Bryn rushes back to her department headquarters to find it has been over-run by zombies. She joins the few remaining survivors, including her partner John Redcrow, as they mount a last-ditch defense of the town against the crazed horde of zombies.  John has a hunch that this outbreak might be more than a freak of nature… it could be a reckoning!

While Crude Awakening can be enjoyed as a fun, gore-filled zombie apocalypse, it also tackles some troublesome themes faced by contemporary Canadian society. Such themes include the country’s angst towards the production of crude oil and the plight of the First Nations people.

In addition to the great sequential page art by Dario and Natalia, they are really excited to offer the four alternative cover designs by Italian artistic prodigy, Leo Colapietro. These masterpieces are available as pinups in the Digital edition PDF, as pinups or posters in the print packages and as t-shirts too! At this point, Vigilante Comix only have plans to do a print run using one of them as a variant cover, but if we hit their stretch goals, they could end up offering them ALL as variant covers!
