Undad is more than just another zombie story. It's the story of one man who struggles to keep his own darker nature at bay and his family together, while being (literally) dead inside.
The original Undad graphic novel miniseries was shortlisted in the 2015 Australian Shadows Awards and was highly commended in the 2016 ACT Writing and Publishing Awards (the first graphic novel ever to receive that accolade).
It's also the most popular of my published work and has struck a chord with readers, who praise its fresh and character-focused take on what many see as a tired genre, and appreciate its use of monster metaphors to represent the challenges of depression, shame, compulsive behaviour, and the trials of juggling those issues against the daily demands of family life.
The trilogy - which includes the brand new Undad Volume Three - launched on Kickstarter in May 2019, and raised nearly $5000.
