In post-apocalyptic Canada, guns don't kill people - slapshots do. For the mutated tribes trying to survive nuclear winter - which is like normal Canadian winter, just more radioactive - hockey serves as a form of ritual warfare in which communities gamble their resources on the abilities of their squad to score goals and bust heads on the ice. Stretch, the Edmonton Atomics' goalie, is living his best life - everything is hockey! He's living his dream, but where did his enthusiasm for it go? When did it start to feel so ordinary? Stretch doesn't have long to ponder these questions, because if he can't focus on stopping pucks, the people of Edmonton are going to be the next victims of the Cold Lake SLASHERS!
Hockeypocalypse: Slashers is a standalone horror graphic novel by Jeff Martin, with collaboration from Lukasz Kowalczuk. It is a 116-page black and white graphic novel available in both trade paperback and hardcover, and is the most action-packed, beautifully rendered, bonkers book I’ve ever made. With your help, we can also make it the most-read book I’ve ever made.
For fans of:
• Hockey stories like Check, Please!, Slap Shot, Planet Hockey
• Horror Comedies like Army of Darkness, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil
Jeff Martin is an award-winning cartoonist from Edmonton, Alberta, and is definitely not a robot. He has written and drawn graphic novels for clients including Simon & Schuster, Games Workshop, HeavyMetal.com, heavy metal icons GWAR, and Renegade Arts Entertainment. His works also include the Hockeypocalyspe series of graphic novels and his webcomic, Hell, Inc. He can usually be found in the section of his living room that he refers to as his “comics bunker,” which doesn't make him sound like a madman at all.
Lukasz Kowalczuk was born in 1983 in northern Poland. He's one of the most active Polish comics creators, and writes, draws, publishes, and does workshops. He has published tens of titles in Poland, the United States, Canada, France and Germany, and has a studio in Stacja Kultura, where he also organises Rumia Comic Con. He calls his stuff stupid comics for smart people - underground pulp stories about wrestlers, ninjas, bikers, mutants, conspiracies etc. Recently he does a lot of illustrations for table top role playing and battle games.

The entire book is done and print proofs have been approved. When the campaign ends and money is transferred, production and shipping of the books to me will take about 3 months. Once I have the books, the process of signing, sketching, and mailing to supporters will take about two weeks. Supporters can expect to have their books 3-4 months after the campaign ends (for North American supporters) or 5 months for supporters overseas.
There is no risk of the project not being completed. The only potential for risks at this point are delays involved in the shipping process. While unlikely, should such delays be encountered, they will be communicated to supporters as soon as they are known to the creators.
*Special note: Shipping will be out of Canada, so if you're in the U.S. you'll notice shipping rates are a little higher than usual. We've counter-acted this by offering the rewards at the lowest pricing possible -- so the combined fee should still be in a range you're used to paying for crowdfunded comics.
