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,, 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.

Frequently asked questions

Yes! We encourage you to get more than 1 item! That could be multiple copies of the same reward, or you can mix and match rewards! There is no limit, unless otherwise stated in the reward description.

Our campaigns are for a worldwide audience unless stated otherwise in the campaign. All international orders are sold with the terms DAP (Delivered At Place). You are responsible for any duties and taxes required for the shipment's entry into your country. Our carriers may require you to pay taxes and fees related to importation and customs brokerage of your shipment -- but if your item is really low in value, it may fall under the customs de minimis of most countries. For more information, please contact USPS

Zoop does not store or keep your credit card info. Stripe simply holds the credit card info until the end of a successful campaign and then charges it. It is strictly for this one time use and won't charge it ever again.

You can either access the transaction through your account and click the cancel button, or contact us at and we'll cancel it for you and send back a confirmation email.


Cancellations of rewards or add-ons of $500 or more must be made before there are 72 hours left in the campaign. The reason for this is it can have a negative effect on the tally of the campaign. If it is a limited reward or add-on, there may not be sufficient time for someone else to purchase it, leaving the campaign possibly not funded. We ask for your courtesy of the people running the campaign when making these decisions.

Please use the notes section in the last checkout step or you could e-mail us at with that info during the campaign if you'd like to get it out of the way. Otherwise, we'll be reaching out to all supporters of rewards that require feedback shortly after the campaign is over.

If you want to make changes, you should first cancel your original order and then start over with a new one. If you don't do that and simply process an additional order, the way our system is currently set up you may end up being overcharged for shipping -- which we could remedy for you, but it just takes that extra step of catching it and crediting you back the extra shipping, so please try the prior way first.

Rewards are the priority items that the creators have chosen for the campaign. Add-Ons are meant to be secondary items that are 'unlocked' after you buy something from the Reward level. There are no restrictions on buying Rewards, but you can only buy Add-Ons if you've bought a Reward. Zoop sets this up under the direction of the creators. Some may choose to only have Rewards, some may choose an even balance of Rewards and Add-Ons, and others may choose to only have one or two Rewards with the rest of the items being Add-Ons.

Since we have an a la carte rewards system, shipping rates will vary from supporter to supporter. We use a weight-based calculation system in your checkout cart, though, so, after you enter your country, you'll be able to see it calculated in real time with each item you add.

No - this is it! We're essentially your in-campaign pledge manager. If you are interested in supporting these creators, this is the time to do it!  And it's the exact reason we allow you to purchase as many rewards as you want during the campaign!
