Prom of the Dead comes to Kickstarter


Dave Dwonch, writer of Cyrus Perkins and the Haunted Taxi Cab, and the monthly series Infinite Seven is looking to fund his newest project, a series of three graphic novels in the Spores series on Kickstarter.

Prom of the Dead, the first volume of the saga is currently on the crowdfunding platform.

Set in the halls of the Pineview Academy, a fictional private school in Upstate New York, the story follows its students during a “zombie” ourbreak. A spore with properties similar to Ophiocordyceps Unilateralis infects them one by one, turning them into mindless drones, slaves to a hive mind. As the outbreak spreads rapidly through the school at the celebration, it’s clear to everyone that no one is getting out alive.

I’m a huge fan of horror and teen dramas,” explained Dwonch. “Prom of the Dead is a love letter to movies like The Breakfast Club and Mean Girls, as well as a nod to classic Romero films. There’s also a huge twist that sets Prom apart from the rest of the survival horror genre, and I’m excited for fans to dig into this first volume to see what I have planned.”

Joining Dave on the road to ruin is artist Santiago Guillen. “Santi” is a graduate of the Argentina School of Visual Arts, worked in comics and illustration for years and traveled Europe as a street caricaturist in 2015.

The Prom of the Dead Kickstarter ends on October 5th at 10:00PM PDT. Reward tiers can be claimed following this link:
