Comixology has accepted The End issues 4 & 5. These are all stand-alone stories. So, even though 2 & 3 are not up, doesn’t mean you have to wait; you can start reading the story of people dealing with the coming end of the world at any issue in the series!
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 #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 #1 is now available on Comixology (http://cmxl.gy/1nciYlh).
If the world was going to end in seven days, how would you spend your last week alive? This is the question everyone must answer in my anthology series which examines how different people react to the coming end of their world.
Issue one is illustrated by Stefano Cardoselli and Brad Bowersox. d – 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 relevant, the mind’s moral fabric unravels. Meanwhile, in our 2nd story, one man seeks redemption for his past, but is he already too late to make a difference?
The End is currently going through a Kickstarter as well. Check it out: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1945380719/the-end-4-and-5
One of the rewards for my Kickstarter is now available: Simply donate $25.00, and you can write 1-2 sentences descripting how you would spend the last 7 days on Earth. Your responses can be funny, serious, or just plain crazy.
There is a limit of 12 of these. If my stretch goal is reached for the graphic novel, the limit will be lifted and changed to unlimited entries.
See my Kickstarter Updates to see samples of the art these artists have created for The End from artists Brad Bowersox (Update #4), Rand Arrington (Update #5), and Wu-Gene Hong (Update #6)
Brad’s story is a short tale about a man who tries to make up for his past deeds. In Rand’s story, Lester has been neglecting his wife for a promotion at work, but when he finds out the wold is going to end, he is determined to make his way home and spend the rest of his time with her. Then, in Wu-Gene’s tale, I have posted the first 3 pages, so give it a look.
Please see the recent Kickstarter Updates for preview art of The End from artist Stefano Cardoselli (Update #1) and Ava Berman (Update #3). I have also updated a new prize, a comic Ava and I work on together currently, as an add-on or stand-alone prize.
I handed out around 200 or more Kickstarter flyers at AwesomeCon. We shall see if these have proven helpful.
