Under the Dead Skies
Bethany had everything you could ask for. A condo that was (almost) paid off, a well paying job, and most importantly, a family. It all changed in a heart beat and she had to watch as her whole world crumbled around her and soon she found herself alone in a city of flesh-eating zombies.
Despite the overwhelming odds against her, Beth has managed to do what very few people have been able to do in this post-apocalyptic nation.
She has survived.
However, after coming across a young man with an unexpected trait, she finds herself torn between staying in the comfort and safety of her current routine or risking it all for the greater good of humanity.
As expected, there will be blood, guts, bodies and other unsightly dead things, you have been warned!
The books are here and ready for the Calgary Comic Expo! If you're going to be in town for the convention, I'll be at table R 06 in the BMO Center under "Moon Jelly Creations" which is my studio name.
I'll have a tall banner with our pal wormbie on it, so hopefully I'll be easier to find this year!

Due to biting off more than I could chew this week and bad scheduling on my part, I will have the next page by December 5th.
I hope my American readers have a good holiday with their families this weekend, and thanks for bearing with me, I know this year has been kind of rough in terms of updates, but thank you for your continued readership!

Hey guys, just taking a moment to promo my Patreon page again!
I decided to lower the minimum pledge for all the art and sneak peeks from 3$ to 2$ per update, and you get a LOT of art for the 2$ as you can see from the screenshot!
It's not required of course, but it helps with the production of the comic and is always appreciated!

So up here in the frozen wastes of Canada, we got hit with a freak snow storm. Ordinarily, this isn't a big deal, but because it's so early in the season, we've had some major power outages in the city. My neighbourhood alone has had three since Monday.
Unfortunately this means that I won't be doing art streams, if you're a patron on Patreon (and if you aren't yet, and would like to be, here's the link http://www.patreon.com/UndertheDeadSkies ), out of the fear of them being cut short from an outage, but this is also a heads up just in case the page for this week ends up being late.
The snow is supposed to clear up starting tomorrow, so I don't think that will be the case, but the power outages are incredibly inconvenient.
So sorry for the inconvenience, I'm pretty confident the new shiny page will be done for Friday, we only have TWO MORE pages until the end of this chapter!

I am going to have to take another break for a couple of weeks until my workload lightens a little bit. I know that it’s been really tough this year trying to keep up with my updates, and I do sincerely apologize for it, I have simply been feeling burnt out and unfortunately it’s my comic work that has been suffering for it.
Despite the delays, and hiccups, I am still just as passionate about this project as when I started, and no matter what I will see it through to the end. Thanks for being so understanding, I will be resuming updates by July 4th!

BUTTONS!!!!! I got a custom button box designed too!
It's almost time for the Calgary Comic Expo, I'm getting more and more excited for it!!!
I won't be having full books this year, but I will have a limited print ash can comic that I'll be handing out as promotional material. I wish I had more UtDS stuff besides the buttons and business cards, but I think this year will be a promotion!year more than anything.

Hey, we finally set ourselves up a Patreon site!
What's Patreon? Well, it works like Kickstarter but instead of funding one big project, it helps fund ongoing projects like webcomics!
Even something as small as a dollar an update is a huge help for maintaining and keeping this comic running, but no matter what, the comic will never be behind a pay wall, or anything like that.
You will get access to progress work on the comic, additional sketches, you'll be personally thanked not only on the webpage, but also in future printed books!
Not to mention that my colourist, Safetybunny is working on some decals as rewards for higher pledges as well!
So, if you'd like to support us, and the making of this comic, then come pledge at our Patreon!
