If you're just encountering it now, Snow White Zombie Apocalypse (SWZA to the cool kids) is a comic series created by Brenton Lengel. The first issue, drawn by Dark Horse Comics alumnus & Ringo Award-nominated Inker Hyeondo Park and colored by Jio Butler, was published by Scout Comics to widespread audience and critical acclaim; was rated one of the top 50 indie comics of 2019; and was nominated for TWO 2020 Ringo Awards along with titles from comics industry greats like Stan Sakai, Mariko Tamaki, David Pepose, Coleen Doran, & Neil Gaiman!
The second, third, and fourth issues were drawn by Luana Vecchio (of Image Comics) Now, with the full series about to launch nationwide Brent, Hyeondo, and Luana are asking for your help to create a special edition of the series's FIRST PREQUEL ISSUE and bring Snow White Zombie Apocalypse to comic readers around the world!
There's plenty of zombie and fairytale media out there, but you have never seen anything like Snow White Zombie Apocalypse. This isn't just a survival/horror story - SWZA is an epic dark-fantasy romance that pulls as much from Bruce Lee and Neil Gaiman as it does from J.R.R. Tolkien and George A. Romero.
If you’re a fan of Fables, Sandman, The Walking Dead, or Buffy the Vampire Slayer you will fall in LOVE with Snow White Zombie Apocalypse.
You'll want to read (and back) this comic because this is a story unlike any other: Snow White awakens to True Love's Kiss...twenty-eight days after the zombie apocalypse! With the seven dwarves dead, the quintessential fairy tale princess must join forces with her polyamorous Prince Charming and his tough-as-nails paramour, Rapunzel, to wage a losing battle against death itself. SWZA is a story of deep woodsand old magic mixed with a healthy dollop of blood, sex, kung fu, and gender politics. Way more than zombies and fairy tales as usual!
"SNOW WHITE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE is one of those natural ideas that, as a writer, you smack yourself in the forehead and wonder why you didn't think of it yourself. Thankfully, we can all devour its tasty characters and delicious storytelling as readers."
- Ron Marz (writer for Green Lantern, Silver Surfer, Witchblade, & Marvel vs. DC)
"S.W.Z.A. is one of the cool kids on the indie scene. It's a fun, compelling blend of everything we loved growing up…fairy tales with magic and wizards, along with Sunday morning kung-fu, AND a mishmosh of monster movie moments. It's survival horror and Hollywood romance. The people who made this book love what they are doing and it shows on every page."
-Karl Moline (artist co/creator of Fray & Route 666)
"A brutal, bloody, and badass mashup of fairy tale magic and undead horror... if you like your comics with hyperkinetic action and pitch-black comedy, then look no further than SNOW WHITE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE."
- David Pepose (Ringo Award-Wining Writer of SPENCER & LOCKE, The OZ and Savage Avengers.)

All comics are done, with the exception of the bonus material for the SWZA Graphic Novel, which is currently being drawn and should be completed before the end of the year.
Even after successfully funding and fulfilling FIVE kickstarters, if there’s one thing I’ve learned, there are always unforeseen delays. However, I’m motivated to get this fulfilled as quickly as possible. Everyone always gets their rewards and I always make sure to throw in something extra for the ones that got seriously delayed.
As for the production of the physical pages, all the art coloring and lettering for issues #0-#5 and the Graphic Novel are DONE (with the exception of the new never-before-seen SWZA stories that Ralf Singh and Kit Buss are currently working on.)
The main risks and challenges (as always) will center around printing and distribution, which can cause slight delays depending upon contractors.Paper supply is also an issue, but one I’ve been able to work with.
All we need to do now print, and ship SWZA #0 to you while we finish Vol. 1 and issues #5 & #6!
Bottom line: I will move heaven and earth to make sure you have the book as soon as is humanly possible!
A few short answers to how this works.
