Friend of the site Justin Gray (Wool, Power Girl, Friday the 13th) is back raising funds for his survival horror comic Standstill. There is only 5 days left to get behind the project, but there are a ton of great rewards for the book.
My favorite thing about the Kickstarter Justin is doing, copies of the books start at $5. If you missed out on issue #1, there is a $10 bundle with issues #1 and #2.
So what is Standstill about?
At its core, Standstill is the bastard love child of the Americana survival horror genre and a romantic Greek tragedy. The dramatic table is set here in the opening chapter when you are introduced to Mason and Luna, two young people very much in love, but that love is going to be tested under unimaginable circumstances over the course of their story. I say their story because Standstill is big enough to sustain multiple storylines over time and that’s how I’ve been writing it. As it progresses from chapter to chapter, the story is visceral, emotional, and, in some cases, not for the faint of heart.
Over 7 billion people live on planet Earth. What if 6 billion of them suddenly and inexplicably stopped moving – like toys that ran out of batteries. What would happen if the world came to a… Standstill.
