A little about the team ...


My name is Gilbert Deltres, and I'm the creator/writer of Under The Flesh, an ongoing zombie apocalypse horror comic. I work with an amazing artist by the name of J.L. Giles! We've gelled to the point where we've become sworn blood-brothers to make pro-quality comics for you!


Under The Flesh...


UTF is an independent comic book that started to take shape about a year ago. After months of drafts, scripting, and conceptual art changes, it was launched as a webcomic in March 30th, 2014

UTF is set in a post-apocalyptic world. It's a gritty blast of sex, horror, sci-fi, and dabbles in various sub-themes like evolution, spirituality, and transhumanism. A comic that strays away from the traditional viral story by accentuating a premeditated reason behind the virus, as opposed to leaving the origin of the outbreak as a common question mark. The pathogen also presents a rather unique trait: it only infects males!

To a degree, Under the Flesh is like a Grindhouse mashup of The Walking Dead, Y: The Last Man, & Captain America.

What is PATREON?


Patreon is an ongoing crowdfunding platform that helps independent creators earn money doing what they love, which in turn, allows them to keep on making more and more content you enjoy!

Our UTF comic is free to anyone, but Patrons will get access to exclusive material, behind-the-scenes content, get to know the creators, as well as join the creative movement of our comic.

You can decide what amount you want to give each month, as well as withdraw your financial support at any time. If for any reason you don´t like our work enough, or you are short on cash, you can just tell Patreon to cancel at anytime.

What does PATREON do for an unknown creator like me?


Under The Flesh is a 100% creator-owned independent comic. We don't receive any financial help from advertising or publishers. It's an unconditional labor of love, blood, sweat, and tears. My dream is to share this work of passion with all of you. Truth is, I have very limited financial resources to keep UTF going at its current level of quality and consistency.

Comic book art is expensive because professional artists need to make a living. They can't afford to work for free. Right now, I´m barely able to finance 3 - 4  monthly pages out of my pocket, but with your help, we could be making up to 8 - 15 pages every month! In other words, we could TRIPLE the amount of creative output each month!

Not only would that support give J.L. Giles (the artist of Under The Flesh) a respectable rate, but it also allows me to keep the Under the Flesh narrative alive!

That´s why right now, you guys have the power to help this project continue to grow. We have the chance to work together and create a great comic book outside the margins of a market dominated by big companies. We can do this together!

Truth of the matter is : I'm nothing without you.

You patrons are the blood vessels that will keep this creative heart pumping out fresh, innovative, comics on a monthly basis.

As creator and writer of Under The Flesh, my promise to you is to continually provide you guys with professional quality entertainment at no cost to you. Your support however keeps me and J.L.'s fingers busy in bringing the UTF universe to life.

Chapter 1: DESOLATION DAY

It’s been two months since Desolation Day, when an unknown male-specific virus ravaged the world, degenerating men into savage cannibals called “fleshers.”

Ruben Lobos
, is a short-tempered, genetically enhanced soldier, who’s clueless about his abilities since the pathogen struck at the same time of his experiment. He’s interestingly surrounded by a diverse cast of strong female characters in a dying world where women outlast men.

His group survives inside the walls of an abandoned college library, building a false sense of security that's about to crumble. Exploring his transhuman abilities comes at the price of protecting others, including the love of his life, Dinah. Is there any time for an insanely jealous girlfriend as the world collapses? Ruben needs to start making sense of things quick before the lives of those closest to him fall victim to the cannibal havoc ravaging the world.
