Funding the Business of Fear: Nowadays

by Stephanie Shamblin Gray

Stephanie Shamblin Gray takes a look at one of the newest comics at Indiegogo, Nowadays. Nowadays is a 300-page graphic novel that follows a group of people stranded along a Northern Ontario highway during the onset of a zombie apocalypse, but these are not your parents’ zombies. In Nowadays, the undead have the ability to think, speak, run, and choose whether or not to be monsters. In every other story the zombie is the plot device that creates the fear and motivation that drives and develops the cast of characters through the story; Nowadays redefines the genre to see the zombie as a tragic character. They are no longer the background to the story. They are the main characters with a choice to be the antagonist or the protagonist, the monster or the hero.
