Hello friends! I’ve got wonderful news to share with you: we now have a Patreon campaign set up for patrons interested in supporting our work! You can follow this link to get there: http://www.patreon.com/deadwinter. If you’re not familiar with our work there is a wonderful minute-and-a-half long video set up to get you up to speed on what everything is all about; animated by me, Allison Shabet, with music created by collaborator Jason Klug.
I’ve been making comics for free online for seven years and change in addition to making lots of other cool and experimental art stuff on the internet. Jason is a professional engineer, he programs giant robots to blow up computer memory. We’ve got all the combined skills to make an arcade-style beat-em-up out of Dead Winter and we’d like your help. We’ve got weekly journals planned in addition to other incentives for patrons and we’d love to share what we’re doing with you.
Thanks for all of your support over these seven long years, and thank you for your patronage in helping us carry onward into the future!

Hello again! I set up a Gumroad account and now have DRM-free .pdf ebook versions of both printed volumes of Dead Winter! They’re $2 each or more if you’d like and they’re basically exactly what’s in the printed versions- art corrections, bonus content and more! The Volume 1 ebook has been updated to reflect the name I am writing under so that is also cool, it’s all correct and it’s all me! If you like ebook collections these contain 300dpi high-resolution versions of the comic page so you can read them about as close as I work on them! Yowza!
Printed Volume 2 preorders have been going out all last week and will continue to go out as quick as I can manage. If you are waiting for one of those I send out emails when the order is ready to go to the post office so you will know when your order is up.
I should have a comic page done this week, to keep to my schedule, and this weekend I am going to work on animation assets for a Patreon video- I’d like to make a Patreon as a weekly art journal where I post content updates and my thoughts and process notes. I’d like to put a lot of my video game development journal content there since I have a -lot- to say.
Thanks for reading and thank you for your support!
All content is ©2007-14 Allison Shabet unless otherwise specified. Dead Winter is an action-filled modern fantasy/sci-fi horror story about a post-apocalypse living-dead zombie infested present-day world. It isn't really about zombies, though. It's about people. It follows the lives of a rag-tag group of survivors who struggle to further their agendas and live through a lawless, disease-torn reality where everyday job skills take on new uses and nothing ever really goes according to plan.
