Ladies and gentlemen.
We are, as we speak solicited in Diamond Previews for the month of October.
FUBAR Empire of the Rising Dead clocks in at 27 stories adding up to 256 pages.
I’ve seen it all and it is a most impressive book. A book chocked full of black and white World War 2 zombie pulp fiction.
Talk to your local comic shops and have them ask for FUBAR Volume 2 listed under ALTERNA COMICS in October Previews order code: OCT11 0764.
If you’re not near a comic shop you can pre order online right here!
FUBAR Central Command is proud to announce it’s partnership with Devil’s Due Digital to release FUBAR: European Theater of the Damned through a number of digital outlets.
The Apple App Store has experienced an influx of zombie war comics as Devil’s Due Digital releases their new FUBAR app for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod. The FREE app serves as a comic reader for each of the downloadable issues—each only $0.99!
We set out hoping to raise enough funds to help us pay for part of FUBAR Volume 2’s offset printing. We were worried that our Kickstarter campaign wouldn’t get but a handful of backers. As it turns out, we did just fine. The funds raised through our Kickstarter campaign having greatly exceeded what we’d hoped for now will not only pay for the entire print run, but will also allow us to print more books than we had originally intended. Looking over the data from our backers, I’m honored and humbled to see that outside of our contributors and friends many people from all over the world liked what they saw enough to put up some of their hard earned cash. FUBAR Central Command will be hunkering down and knocking out these reward sketches for our backers. Stay tuned, pics to come soon.
On behalf of all 35 creators involved I humbly thank all of our pledgers and everyone that helped us get the word out!
You guys are amazing and we couldn’t have come close to pulling this off without you guys.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have launched our Kickstarter campaign to help with printing the offset run of FUBAR volume 2: Empire of the Rising Dead.
Through our Kickstarter is the only place to get volume 2 until late December and either volume 1 or 2 ordered through Kickstarter also come with your choice of custom WW II sketch on the front page. This also the place to snap up some of Steve Becker’s zombie combat target as well as all kinds of other FUBAR custom art. So click here to get on over there and see what I’m talking about.
The second installment of our World War II Zombie anthology is off to the printers. We’ve shifted the locale for this volume from the European theater to the Pacific theater of World War II. This volume contains 20 short comics by 33 Small-Press Commandos. A limited ” fundraiser” run will debut at the Baltimore Comic Con this August. If you can’t make to Baltimore this year, we’ll have another chance for you to snap up one of the limited first pressings of volume 2, so stay tuned. This cover was illustrated by our go to cover man, the one and only Danilo Beyruth.
FUBAR volume 2 is well under way. 43 creators are collaborating to bring you 27 short World War II zombie stories set in the Pacific theater. As FUBAR volume one goes into it’s second printing we’ve decided to share one of the 27 stories with you rock steady true believers. “Wild Blue” is brought to you by FUBAR’s senior editorial staff.Written by our Story Editor: Jorge Vega and illustrated by FUBAR’s Editor in Chief: Jeff McComsey
The first offset print run is just about sold out. We’ve gotten great order numbers from comic shops and our online distributors that have left our boxes of FUBAR depleted. It’s what we refer to as a “good” problem. Since orders are still coming in and we find ourselves about to start our con season without any books we decided to place an order for a second print run of FUBAR volume 1. After having stared at the first cover for so long I decided that to distinguish the two print runs, we should have a different cover for it.
My first choice for a cover artist was Danilo Beyruth. I know guys that draw as well as Danilo are usually pretty busy. I expected him to politely pass but I had to ask anyway. I was very excited when he agreed to do it and in very short time. Needless to say, Danilo absolutely nailed it and got it to me 2 weeks before the time I needed it. He’s the real deal.
Today is the debut of FUBAR in comic shops all across the world. 15 stories, 184 pages of World War II zombie pulp fiction available for $11.99. It represents several months of hard work by 19 different creators as well as letterers and pin up artists. It is to date the undertaking of which I am most proud of in my career. It was a great thrill to read scripts and see artwork before anybody else. Now the collected stories that make up FUBAR are available for mass consumption. You can pick it up at your local comic shop, or if you can’t make it to a brick and mortar shop you can order online here.
Even as I type this, work is under way for the next volume of FUBAR. This volume will take place exclusively in the Pacific theater and should premier at the Baltimore Comic Con.
There are many shorts in FUBAR that were well thought out, brilliantly plotted and executed in the highest traditions of our medium.
This is not one of those shorts.
Steve Becker and I were sitting around the studio talking about FUBAR, and we came to the conclusion that the first volume needs just a little bit more brains and baseball bats. We decided to do a collaboration for this story. These are my layouts/pencils, inked by Steve. It’s also worth noting that Steve did hand drawn sound effects, which I think really set this short off. Enjoy
