Hello everyone!

This is a comic concept I came up with years ago but it has never seen the light of day since around 2005. Well, now is the time to jump on board as we are ready to start unveiling the progress piece by piece until the finished comic is complete.

The story is about a girl, Jessica, who has a mysterious past. She has lost most of her memories but remembers her brother Jack.
Jack has been missing for a year and when Jessica wanders the city, she discovers that he is now undead.

It is revealed that a corporation has been taking orphans and using them as subjects for a new drug that is supposed to give them certain abilities. Instead, in Jack's case, it turned him into an undead hero.
Now he and his sister try to stop them from using the drug but will they succeed or will it go out to the public?

Stay up to date with us as I, Jasen Smith (https://twitter.com/Jasen_Smith), will be writing, coloring, and lettering the story while John Wright will be adding the art to this wonderful project.

Every time John sends me something I love it.
He has gone through so many designs with me, but he takes it very well. Here, you can see the beginning stages of the designs he went through before we decided that we had the right look.

I believe these were the first designs he did based on a brief description. Jack is on the left and Jessica is on the right. He is the undead brother who will stop at nothing to save his sister whenever in harm's way.

With Jack I wanted him to look slimmer rather than that classic heroic figure. He is a scrappy and a dirty fighter.

Below is Jessica, she is our main character, the narrator, and the one we will relate to in the story.

HAPPY MONDAY!!
Seriously, check out our first sneak peak at the pages we are putting together.
This is the first page of our book and when I first wrote the script, page 1 was completely different. I wanted to start it off where our character starts off. She's gone through a lot already and as we see here, she can't take any more and collapses.

Our hero, Jack. He is the brother of Jessica and will do anything to protect her.
He was turned into this zombie-like creature you see by the UMBRA Agency.
He doesn't heal and throughout the story he will be taking battle damage.

Stay up to date with us as I, Jasen Smith (https://twitter.com/Jasen_Smith), will be writing, coloring, and lettering the story while John Wright will be adding the art to this wonderful project.
