Mr. Guy’s Coming Back from the Un-Dead!

Mr. Guy, a half-goblin with green skin and a cheeky smile, holding up two fingers on an arm roped with muscle and spikes, with a skull poking out of the shoulder. Behind him is a sunset over a beach, with zombie hands splashing out of the water and a door hanging open, with tentacles reaching out of it.

Mr. Guy was just your average half-goblin, half-fool who took odd jobs to pay the bills. But then he got bit by some decomposing jerk! Instead of coming back from the dead, he was cursed to live with a sassy spectral sidekick in the flesh of his rotting zombie bite until he dies…and became undead. It’s not a great arrangement, TBH.

Now, to save himself, this half-goblin, half-fool’s gotta save the whole dang world…starting September 6 on Kickstarter, in Mr. Guy: Zombie Hunter #1-2, A Fantasy Zombie Comedy Comic!

Act 1: To Save Himself

In Act 1: To Save Himself—the original zom-com caper—our reluctant hero was infected with the ZMB virus. But rather than un-dead-ifying, he got saddled with a skeletal sidekick named Spooky, who helped him run for his life…er…fight ferociously against a horde of horrifying, hungry shamblers, a be-dead-ed barkeep, and even an unholy cow! 

Written by Jayel DracoAct 1 features cover art by Sonne, and eight-page chapters illustrated by Jayel Draco (PACKTracy Queen), Walter Ostlie (Metalshark BroGhost Bats), Diana Camero (Guts), and Jacey Chase (Far AwayJunction). 

Act 2: The Hecking Heck of It

Now, in Act 2: The Hecking Heck of It, Mr. Guy and Spooky—who comes with neato powers—must face all the hecks in Heck with Dante, a doom swamp, a crankypants orisha, Elder Gods, a seriously gnarly necromancer, and even the Dark Lord’s darkest hole! Even worse, they have to spend another whole act together as they try to cure the zombie apocalypse and break the curse that binds them together.

Written by Jayel Draco, Act 2 features cover art by stevieraedrawn (Weatherwax Coven), and eight-page chapters illustrated by James GroelingDaniel Hooker (Line of RuinHit!), Michel Abstracto (Tales of IntoxicaTarMucks: Origins), and Wren Rios…plus a stretch-goal bonus comic illustrated by “Skooba” Steve Myers (Battle for OzellbergThe Zaidura Chronicles)!
