The End #5 is now available on IndyPlanet. You can purchase the issue as a physical order for $2.99, or a digital comic for $1.99.

Issue #4 just went through, and will be up shorty. Eventually, in just a month or two, I will have all 5 issues of The End set-up for physical order and digital download. After that, it’s only a matter of making sure that all 5 are available on all platforms the other issues are already on.

The End #2 is now available on IndyPlanet Digital:

The price is currently $3.50 for a physical comic. I am going to try and lower that to $2.99.

The End #4 is at the printers, awaiting final adjustments. Here is a preview of the first story in Issue #4, which follows a shy and reclusive individual as she reflects on her life up to this point, and whether or not there is any hope left in this world to keep on living.

First, here are the original sketches of the character throughout her life by artist Tina Lee.

And now, here is one of the early pages in the story, to give you the idea of the set-up. Remember to bring your tissues when you read the actual issue.

Oh wow, I totally uploaded an early version, as you can still see the plates through people’s bodies because the layers haven’t been removed yet.

My Kickstarter for my comic book series The End is to fund issues 4 & 5. The artists for those issues are Kathleen Parker, Sonia Liao, Tina Lee, & Lauren Sparks.

Please view my Kickstarter to see their art. Their pages are available to view after the Kickstarter description, and lots of their art is within the video (so please watch).

Also, check the Updates tab to see the page’s transformation from Pencils to fully finished Inks.

The End #4 & #5 are nearly complete, so I am going to post to you a page from the first story drawn by Sonia Liao. A group of astronauts hijack a space shuttle and make off for a space station, where they hope to avoid all the comets completely and return to Earth later. Now, they are still alive, but was survival at any cost worth the price?

Wow, I am loving this new Embed feature on DeviantArt; the art scales to the webpage itself instead of expanding out so much that I have to lower the file size then repost it.

This is a preview of The End #3’s second story: Must Play, featuring the original pencils and the finished page. In this story, David has only one goal the last week of his life: play all the video games he can. Yes, this is a comedy in my end of the world series.

If the world was going to end in one week, how would you spend your remaining seven days alive?

That is the question asked in this series of short stories, which shows how ordinary people react (or refuse to react) to their own impending doom.

This issue features 2 stories:

“id” – Charley Wymer worked a boring office job most of his life, and now he seeks to make up for lost time, by killing as many people as possible. With the world’s rules no longer relavent, the mind’s moral fabric unravels.

Written by: Shawn Murphy
Illustrated by: Stefano Cardoselli




“Second Chances” – One man seeks redemption for his past, but is he already too late to make a difference?

Written by: Shawn Padraic Murphy
Illustrated by: Brad Bowersox


Cover Illustration by: Robyn Haley

Below is the cover.

The cover’s color appears a little subdued on Comixpress, so here is a very bright version without the text.
