Crowd-Funded, Indie Comic Series Launches May 5th With Free Download

Coinciding with Free Comic Book Day, The End Is Totally Nigh, a new supernatural indie comic book series by writer Kara Barrett and artist Vinnie Rico, launches. A free digital version of the comic book will be available online for 24 hours to celebrate the series launch and Free Comic Book Day. Just head to their Faceook page and you’ll get a link for the free version.

The comic is mature and centers around a young woman with mysterious powers who must try to stop the impending apocalypse. It’s just one example of the wave of comics being funded by Kickstarter (of which I was one). Barret describes the heroine as a “smart, confident women who have realistic bodies.”

“I wanted to create a series where female characters are defined by their actions, not skin tight clothing and cleavage.” states Barrett. The series features a gutsy female heroine who must battle evil forces.

15 issues are planned for season one of the series.
