FUBAR: Mother Russia on KickStarter


Stalingrad. 1943. One baby. One rifle. Two million zombies. FUBAR PRESS's first stand alone graphic novel: MOTHER RUSSIA.


If I had $500 to spare, I would back this project with the highest reward package. I know that since Walking Dead became a hit TV series, people have been more open to stories and films telling of a zombie apocalypse. Before World War Z, the movie, I wouldn’t have given a second to checking them out though. Before then, zombies remind me too much of the awful movie that was Night of the Living Dead.

Too bad I don’t have dispensable $500 at the moment. I’ll actually settle for the lower packages as long as I receive the printed book, but it would be nice to receive original artwork as well.

I wouldn’t flip through this book while vacationing in Corregidor though, amidst the ruins of military barracks. Nor would I read it while in a cemetery. Though not intended to scare readers, it just might prove to be too creepy. I’d rather read it in the comforts of home, or in a brightly lit space, maybe even beside large wall water fountains to invoke serenity and calm. Hehe. 

Anyway, what do you think of the plot?  Are graphic novels something that interests you?
