Australian graphic novelist to publish "Undad," the personal journey of an undead man trying to lead a normal, vegetarian life.

Canberra, Australia; 30, October 2014: Shane W. Smith, author of multiple long and short works, including Aurealis Award finalist "Peaceful Tomorrows," has announced a multilevel Kickstarter campaign for his new comic project titled "Undad."


The comic miniseries is currently scheduled for five issues with around 40 pages each and with a new artist attached to each issue. "Undad" stars recently undead family man Brett Buckley. Buckley attempts to hide his status from friends, family and co-workers while trying to figure out his new place in the world, coach his kids’ soccer team and reconcile his militant vegetarian morals with his insatiable hunger for living flesh.

"The very best of classic zombie fiction acts as a critique of human nature, of the collective human experience, a witty indictment of mob mentality," Shane W. Smith said, "and presents at its very core a species vainly struggling against extinction at the hand of its own darker nature."

Smith added that although the tradition of using zombie fiction as a parable for modern life holds true in his project, "'Undad' does things a little differently." This particular comic is focused on the personal individual journey of Buckley and his quest to regain the love and respect of his family.

"Becoming dead reminds him how to live," Smith said.

The extensive Kickstarter campaign, with an initial goal of $3,750, is set up so that backers who contribute any amount will be rewarded. Investors have multiple tiers and levels to choose from, with rewards including, but not limited to, either digital or hardcopy versions of "Undad," copies of various other titles from Smith’s collection of works, limited-edition "Undad" journals, custom sketches and even the chance to have a character of your likeness in "Undad."

Both additional tiers/levels of contributions and investments towards issues 3-5 will be unlocked once certain dollar amounts are achieved, in hopes of keeping the donors engaged throughout the process and successful progression of the series.
