Crowd Funding - Diary of a teenage Zombie

Hey guys,

So I gotta tell you, this isn't an ordinary post. This is a post where you'll receive visuals and an incentive to help out an almost bum author. Right now, you should see me, on my hands and knees, grovelling for a small bit of your time and hopefully all of your money! Kidding, but some would be great.
You see, I'm trying the crowd-funding avenue, hoping that the fans and readers of my books will help fund the next release novel - Diary of a Teenage Zombie.
Naturally, you are guaranteed lots of special gifts even for the smallest of donation which is only $10, and plenty of good Karma. I'd love it if you checked out my pledge below, and headed over to the Pozible site to support my venture. At least this way I can keep the books coming thick and fast. And, if you can't help out, please tell someone who might.
Cheers guys, I really appreciate the support!

Kristy

Review: Zombie Cities by Sorab Del Rio


Okay, so I don't read comic books. Hell, I've probably only ever gazed through a few in the course of my life. Even as a little kid I wasn't overly enthused, but, I was at the Brisbane Supanova in November last year, and met this truly passionate comic book writer and his click of talented illustrators.
The comic book, or graphic novel, as I've been reminded is the "PC" term these days, is known as "Zombie Cities".
So why did I nab myself a copy of this graphic novel? Well, for one, at the time I was writing my own zombie based novel, and was intrigued what would compel someone else to ponder this genre, and then I realised, zombies are f@#%king awesome.

Zombie Cities is no ordinary graphic novel plowing through a lengthy plot or commenting on the idle musings of an orange cat in the local paper. Zombie Cities is a hilarious take on the world's decline, political agenda, and the overwhelming truth that XBox games really will help you kick a zombie's ass.
From Barrack Obama, to the Queen of England, we see the funny, morally bankrupt, and grossly graphically portrayed decline of humanity. Gun control laws are out the window, and the endorsement of eyeballs as a delicacy on the streets of Japan make you want to throw a Nespresso machine at George Clooney, telling him to stick to the black stuff. With wonderfully illustrated and aptly captioned scenes, I can honestly say that Sorab has converted me - at least to his measure of the zombie apocalypse!
