A new project from the independent publisher and comics distributor Comichaus, CAMP VA07 offers a perhaps apposite post apocalyptic thriller, set in a world ravaged by ‘The Red’. 

All animal life has been wiped out and the agricultural industry crumbles under the weight of demand for food.

The world needs help – and our saviours come in the form of an alien race, but their aid comes at a price…. Food in exchange for our blood.

It seemed so simple. But now, the human race live as servants to alien overseers, farmed for food by an alien race, who are unforgiving in their treatment. 

But one family has had enough… it’s time to fight back. Follow them as they fight the system which forces their servitude.
