It was this scene from the 1932 classic horror film 'White Zombie' that inspired the graphic novel. The POV of a person turning into a zombie, slowly losing their humanity and soul.
At first I wrote a 5 page short story tilted "Red" that was simply the last moments of a unnamed man as his last human thoughts were going through his mind till the last page it was him seeing red and being overpowered by the desire to eat human flesh.
A weeks after I finished the short story a friend of mine was over at my apartment hanging out and when the second spark lit the flames of what would become the final story. After she told me she wanted to be in one of my next horror stories, I started thinking about the short story I just finished, and how to expand on it. I took the idea of what if Edgar Allan Poe wrote Alice in Wonderland and combined it with my short story.
The road to creation did have a few minor set backs in the earlier years of development after the first 3 artist that originally were contracted to complete the illustrations had left the project for various reasons. Until the talented Mr. Rocky Andreotti of Adamo Studios partnered with me to illustrate the graphic novel and on October, 11th, 2014 Little Guy Productions held a release party at the St. Louis downtown pub 'The Haunt' selling out of the entire first print and a few dozen presales of the 2nd printing.
Now it is our flagship title on its 8th reprinting, and being sold in 15 stores across 3 states with the animated adaptation currently in development.
