Zombies couldn't be any hotter right now and a new and enlightening franchise has been born with the novel "100 Days of Death" by Ray Ellingsen. The story centers around a man caught in a post apocalyptic viral epidemic that quickly destroys humanity as we know it. With the dead rising and a taste for those left living, the protagonist bands with a group of other survivors and fight to see the next day.
With the novel complete and Moving Pictures Media Group producing the film (now in pre-production), the creative team behind "100 Days Of Death" are now continuing to build the franchise by creating the the "100 Days of Death" four issue graphic novel. This project will be helmed by legendary comic artist, Tommy Castillo. Having worked with the comic field's largest and iconic companies, Tommy has created memorable art with such titles as Batman Detective; Legends of the Dark Knight, Toe Tags with horror legend George Romero, Alice in Wonderland, King Kong and The Darkside of Oz. He will now expand his repertoire with creating the original artwork for the "100 Days of Death" graphic novel. Additionally, Tommy will be putting his writing talents to work adapting the original novel to fit his incomparable and imaginative vision.
To fund such a visionary and enticing series, Moving Pictures Media Group and author Ray Ellingson have created a Kickstarter campaign so that this project can be effectively made in a timely manner, get fans to be included in the series (drawn by Tommy himself) and tie in with all the other projects associated with the exciting "100 Days" franchise. With a story so captivating and nail-bitingly intense, the franchise has already accumulated a prolific fan following. Former Lucasfilm, Ltd. CEO Charlie Weber and three time Academy Award winning Sound Mixer Mike Minkler have given their stamp of approval. Considering they have worked on iconic film franchises such as Indiana Jones and Star Wars, it is safe to say they know a thing or two about great stories. Sci-Fi star Tricia Helfer states "100 Days of Death takes zombie tales to a whole new level" and Emmy nominated actress Carolyn Hennesy of HBO's True Blood mirrored that sentiment by saying "100 Days of Death takes scary, gooey gore to a whole new level. I actually jumped more than a few times".
With so much admirable support, it is evident that this story and art need to be made to bring the "100 Days of Death" franchise to it's highest potential. You could be a part of history and the "next big thing"! To support this project and it's campaign visit: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/797795502/100-days-of-death-the-graphic-novel.
