UNDER THE FLESH #2 LAUNCHES ON KICKSTARTER
When a virus that affects only males spreads through the world, things look pretty bleak. That premise might sound a little familiar if you've read Y: The Last Man but this is for a new comic entitled Under the Flesh from Gilbert Deltres and JL Giles. The creative team is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to fund the release of the second issue. The main differentiator with Under the Flesh is that is puts the origin of the outbreak right up front instead of leaving it a mystery like most virus stories. What is it, you ask? Well, you'll have to read the book to find out.
Under the Flesh follows Ruben Lobos, a genetically enhanced soldier as he comes face-to-face with the other males of the world who have become savage cannibals. Along the way he's figuring out the true potential of his new abilities. The comic has been described as a Grindhouse mashup of Captain America, Y: The Last Man, and The Walking Dead. Based on what I've seen, it could be a mix of Y: The Last Man and Crossed, but I also haven't read the book yet.

The Kickstarter campaign aims to raise funds to cover the costs of printing the second issue and to begin work on the rest of the planned six-issue series. It's already fully completed and ready to print so there's little risk involved in this. If you want a taste of the book before backing the project, the creators are offering a download of the first issue completely free. Rewards for the campaign range from the book itself to commissions and even getting yourself drawn into the comic.
The Under the Flesh Kickstarter campaign is scheduled to run through December 8th, 2014.
