‘Going Green’ Campaign is Live on Zoop! Supernatural Family Drama From The Creative Team of ‘Army of Darkness/Bubba Ho-Tep’


In a world where composting human remains is a growing trend, what happens when our loved ones return, growing out of their composted remains into the people they once were?

The creative team of Vincente Federici (TMNT, Vampirella) and Scott Duvall (Diablo House, Zii and the Troublemakers) are re-uniting after their first collaboration on the Bruce Campbell-inspired comic crossover, Army of Darkness/Bubba Ho-Tep. Rounding out this groovy reunion are colorist Michele Monte (Speed Republic) and Ringo award-winning letterer Taylor Esposito (Red Hood and the Outlaws), plus Eisner-nominated cover artist Sara Richard (The Dead Hand Book). Joining Duvall as co-writer/co-creator is novelist and indie filmmaker Sean Reliford (Persons of Interest).

Going Green is the supernatural family drama of Locke & Key meets the eco-horror of Annihilation in a modern-day monster comic with heart. This is a tale of family, loss, and second chances in a strange new world where the dead emerge from soil derived from their composted remains, giving them life anew.

Our story begins in the Pacific Northwest after the Dunn children suffer the tragic loss of their father. Instead of burying him, they go the route of an affordable new method of laying your loved ones to rest called Going Green, which composts the remains into soil as a greener alternative.

Shortly after, their lives begin to change dramatically as their formerly deceased dad is reincarnated as a plant-hybrid creature. Meanwhile, a dangerous, kaiju-like hive mind comprised of the reanimated remains of the town’s deceased, is beginning to uproot as an internal battle wages within its ecosystem of conflicting personalities.

Going Green will appeal to fans of genre properties such as Stranger Things or Something Is Killing The Children. This story leans into the terrifying, while also telling a story about death, second chances, and family. Intended for a mature audience, its strong themes about what it takes to keep a family together through troubling times should resonate with a variety of readers.

This is an idea we’ve been bouncing back and forth for years, and it’s one that we couldn’t let die. We love this idea, and we want to maintain ownership over it. The only way to do that is to take it direct-to-consumer, and by doing so, we are still in control of the art and the way the story is told and marketed. This is the first indie comics crowdfunder we’ve done, and we wanted to do it with the support of readers like you who believe in the project and in us and our abilities to tell this story.

Co-creator and artist Vincenzo Federici said, “Going Green is for me something visceral. Me and Scott worked so good together that we actually NEED to do this new project. The creation process was a blast. Sean and Scott are a truly good team and together we’ll try to bring a great horror to life!”

“I’m so excited for people to experience this project,” adds co-creator/co-writer Sean Reliford. “Going Green is coming from a group of creators with very unique but complementary styles to tell a story of hope, loss, and what is means to have a second chance. It’ll be very interesting to see all the conversations about the various themes in the book. It’s a very ambiguous story that will be told with great care and thought, thanks to industry veterans Scott and Vincenzo, both of whom I’ve learned a great deal from about the comics art form.”

In addition to the 100-page graphic novel available in both print and digital (which includes 84 pages of story plus extras), add-ons will include stickers, signed and numbered art prints, original art commissions, signed copies of Army of Darkness/Bubba Ho-Tep #1, the chance to cameo in Going Green, plus more surprises and collector’s items signed by legendary comic book creators.
