Kickstarter Spotlight – The End Is Totally Nigh – Issue #1

Kara Barrett is a very enthusiastic comic book creator who has turned to Kickstarter to promote her comic The End is Totally Nigh.  I appreciate an indie artist doing some pounding of the virtual street so I absolutely wanted to spotlight this.  Below you can find out about the project and Kara has promised a guest blog post about her experience with Kickstarter.

The End Is Totally Nigh – Offering Death By Comic Book

How would you like to get killed by a demon in an illustrated cameo of a comic book? Well, that’s one of the reward incentives for the Kickstarter campaign, The End Is Totally Nigh.

Oklahoma comic writer and creator Kara Barrett has launched a Kickstarter campaign for issue #1 of her indie comic series about a supernatural heroine keen on preventing the end of the world.

It’s a girl-meets-apocalypse story filled with demon hordes, quippy banter and more than a few bumpy twists and turns. The End Is Totally Nigh centers around Jane, a girl who has the ability to exorcise demons. But it won’t be long before she discovers that her demon knack is not quite what it seems.

Contributors to the project will receive cool reward incentives based on the amount they pledge. Rewards range from printed copies of the comic book, t-shirts and limited edition artwork to illustrated cameos in the book! The first person to contribute $100 to the project even gets to experience death by comic book, with an illustrated cameo of a poor sap who gets killed by a demon.

The story promises lots of action and some pretty cool artwork by artist Vinnie Rico and cover artist Tim Durning.  To learn more about the project and make your pledge just visit the official Kickstarter page at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kbarrett/the-end-is-totally-nigh-issue-1-0 .
