About the Project.

They say that the creative process is always based on elements provided by nature and life, which I find to be true. Zombi Kid touches on a personal subject for my family and I, but I believe that as creators, it is our duty to share our experiences through the stories we tell. Our mother passed away when I was 15 and my brother, Dominique, was about 2. We didn't have the tools to cope with such a loss and the only thing we could do was immerse ourselves in comics. Desperately seeking an escape valve to vent our creativeness, restlessness, fears and dreams. 2005 arrived and Zombi Kid was born. Zombi Kid was created as a catharsis to accept our loss, to express our feelings, and honor the memory of those who aren't with us anymore.

Zombi Kid is a graphic novel about coping with the loss of a loved one and life in a post-apocalyptic Ciudad Juarez, seen through the eyes of three teenagers; Ginny, Roy and Lucas. Just a bunch of orphans, whom a violent society demands them to grow up fast and not fear what's to come. Ginny suffers the loss of his older brother, Fabio, and becomes aware of an urban legend about a kid who has the power to bring people back from the dead. It's up to Ginny and the gang to find Zombi Kid and put his powers to the test.




About the Creators.

656 Comics is a comics collective born in the chaotic region between Ciudad Juarez and El Paso, Tx. With more than a decade portraying the borderland with stories that reflect both the fantastical and reality of the Juarez community.

656 Comics has published over 10 graphic novels, 11 anthologies and 20 comics, independently and with support from various institutions. Some of their prominent works are; "Infestación: The Mythology" (2010): a 372 page graphic novel which was officially selected for the 37th International Comics Festival of Angoulême 2010 and "Cronoerrante" (2012): a sci fi graphic novel that explores the dark history of Ciudad Juárez.

The key players working on Zombi Kid are:

  • Oliver Lee Arce: co-writer and illustrator.

  • Dominique Arce: co-writer and graphic designer

  • Luis Garcia: colorist

  • Alexis Rueda: flatter

Rewards

How will the funds be used?

We are asking $150,000.00 MN (roughly $8,000.00 USD) in order to fund the whole operation; pre production, printing, and shipping. Since this is an "Everything helps" campaign, we have stipulated specific rewards that will be offered at certain funding goals. This in no way will affect the quality of the final product or rewards.

Reward Fulfillment.

The production of the graphic novel should be in full swing by the time the campaign starts and will take about a year to complete it. All rewards will be sent out to you fine people as soon as the graphic novel leaves the printers. We know a year is a long time to wait but hopefully we can make the wait fun by offering updates via the Ideame platform and our social media.

Risks and challenges.

Like stated above, the graphic novel should be completed within a year after the campaign has initiated. To facilitate the printing process and conserve time, we have locked in a couple of printers with whom we have worked with before.

The funds collected in this campaign are strictly for paying a print run, pre-production and shipping. If we surpass our goal, we will notify you of the possibility of reaching our stretch goals.

Errors and delays are always a possibility, but we will do our best to keep this operation working like a well-oiled machine. We will keep everyone posted on a regular basis.

If we don't reach the 100% of the funding goal, we will use it to do the following:

  • With the 10%

    If we only raise $15,000.00 MN (roughly $800 USD), we can only offer the "Lenzi" and "Mcloughlin" pack.

  • With the 25%

    With $37,500.00 MN (about $2000 USD), we can offer the set of exclusive sticker and print with the "Lenzi" and "Mcloughlin" pack.

  • With the 50%

    Half way there! With $75,000.00 MN (approximately $4000 USD), we can offer the coveted "O'Bannon" pack. "Lenzi" pack also included.

  • With the 75%

    Now we're talking! With $112,500.00 MN (nearly $6000 USD), we can offer the "O'Bannon" pack, and a very limited run of plushies (x10) and Halloween masks (x20). First come, first serve, though. "Lenzi" pack also included.
