The End Is Totally Nigh, a new supernatural indie comic book series by writer Kara Barrett, is launching on Saturday, May 5th, 2012.

The story, intended for mature readers, centers around a young woman with mysterious powers who must try to stop the impending apocalypse. It was funded last December on the social site, Kickstarter. Unlike many comics in the marketplace that feature hyper sexualized images of women, The End Is Totally Nigh features smart, confident women who have realistic bodies. It is drawn by artist Vinnie Rico.
“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.
“The End Is Totally Nigh will be brimming with demon baddies, apocalyptic drama and a cast of supernatural characters readers will enjoy.” says Kara Barrett
The indie series is scheduled to be released in monthly installments. 15 issues are planned for season one of the series.
Author Kara Barrett lives in Oklahoma City. The End Is Totally Nigh is her first comic book series and she plans on launching new indie titles later this year.
