To save himself, he may have to save us all. How tedious.

Mr. Guy: Zombie Hunter – Act 1 Written by Jayel Draco, featuring art by: Sonne, Jayel Draco, Walter Ostlie, Diana Camero, Jacey Chase, and Sophia Murphy. The first four 8-page arcs of Mr. Guy: Zombie Hunter are funding now, along with Oneshi Press’s Origins Anthology, fantastic art prints, and SO MUCH HECKING MORE! Check it out now on Kickstarter ending September 10th!
Act 1 of Mr. Guy: Zombie Hunter is divided into four 8-page arcs.
Arc 1: Stoopid Vermin
Mr. Guy recalls the night he was minding his own business, babysitting a cow, when a bunch of decomposing weirdos showed up and started biting! Before he knew it, he’d been gnawed on by some jerk and gained a skeletal sidekick called Spooky, who took up residence in his rotting arm. The duo set off to cure themselves by finding the source of the zombie apocalypse—and saving the world on the way.
Arc 2: A Damned Drink
Mr. Guy moseys into Muskrat City with Spooky in his arm, looking for a shot of Shwiskey. Instead, he finds himself surrounded by the undead. Using his best martial arts training, Mr. Guy lays into those who’d eat his brains…and discovers his new pal Spooky grants his infected limb with neato powers!

Arc 3: Muskrat City
Turns out the whole damn town of Muskrat City is infested with the infected! Mr. Guy and Spooky fight their way out of a hardware store, but all their implements of destruction aren’t enough to hold the horde at bay. When they climb through an open window to escape the ravening townspeople, they find themselves in a lab where the ZMB Virus may have begun.

Arc 4: Resident Viral
Look, Mr. Guy didn’t get infected with a floating skull just so he could be ripped to shreds by a drooling, tentacled lab experiment gone wrong! Determined to escape this new threat, he and Spooky look for help from a mysterious stranger who’d rather play at puzzles than help save the world. Better escape to the sewers so they can live to fight on in Act 2!

What’s this Mr. Guy biz all about anyway?
Ok, so here’s the big idea:
Mr. Guy: Zombie Hunter is a delicious zombie-apocalypse caper of ridiculous proportions. Written by Oneshi Press co-founder Jayel Draco, the book is a 12-chapter saga exploring a smattering of zombie-apocalypse tropes. Each 8-page mini-story is paired with a different illustrator to create a brand-new comic book style we’re calling an “art-thology.” Cute, right? This unique approach gives the cohesive narrative rich variations in flavor to keep you turning them zesty pages.
Typically, any given zombie apocalypse story, will have you suspend disbelief and enter a world where their mythos is the cannon-proper lore. Mr. Guy: Zombie Hunter however, suffers no such delusions. Each story arc takes on a different pop-culture version of the zombie apocalypse as our erstwhile warrior tries to figure out where the whole thing began. Could it have been a retrovirus? Perhaps a voodoo spell? Maybe divine retribution? How about GMOs? Are we saying it’s aliens?
Tag along as Mr. Guy—our reluctant-hero, half-goblin ne’er-do-well— who just just trying to make it in the gig-economy, now has to uncover the origins of the end of the world. He and his floating-ghost-skull side-kick Spooky have been cursed to suffer each-other for all time. To free themselves from each other, he’s got to find a cure for himself…which likely means he’ll inadvertently have to save the whole hecking world, too.
Honestly? He’s less than stoked about it.
Castle BIGmart is spoken-word zombie-apocalypse survival story that will eventually tie in to Mr. Guy’s storyline.
