Not so long ago, James Moran and Mike Garley set up VS Comics, "an all-genre, creator-owned, monthly digital comic". It's already up to its 4th issue. If you like indie comics/graphic novels, then I'd recommend checking it out as it's got a great variety of stories from an equally wide variety of writers/creators.
James and Mike are happy to accept submissions so I pitched them a story about cannibals in a post-apocalyptic world (what's not to love, right?), and they went for it. I'm incredibly excited as it's my first time writing a comic, so very much unfamiliar territory. And now I need an artist to work with me to bring my story alive.
It's called Feeding Time, a two-parter (twelve pages in total) about a ravaged post-apocalyptic world where the only food resource left is humans. A breed of cannibals has evolved – known as ‘vores’ – and they eat their prey alive. Some people aren’t as committed as vores, and they try to survive off the mangy remains of malnourished pets. One mother in particular is desperate to feed herself and her hungry son. She ventures outside into the bleak urban landscape in search of food. She gets accosted by a group of vores but escapes with a man who offers to help her. She decides to trust him, for now, but how soon before the vores attack again, and will the man reveal his true motives?
(still from The Road)
