The next chapter of La Muerta is coming to Kickstarter in June
Coffin Comics announces a new Kickstarter campaign for its next La Muerta original graphic novel entitled La Muerta #1: Vengeance.
Vengeance is a 48-page square-bound graphic novel that continues the two-part story established so far in 2016’s La Muerta series (Descent and Last Rites). This new chapter will be brought to life by series creator Brian Pulido and writer Mike MacLean (La Muerta, Lady Death). Series illustrator Joel Gomez and series colorist Ceci de la Cruz will return for interiors.
Having avenged her family’s brutal murders, Maria Diaz thought she could hang up her guns forever. She thought wrong. Something is slaughtering helpless immigrants, including innocent children. Once more, Santa Muerte, the saint of death, calls upon Maria to be an instrument of vengeance. And again Maria heeds the call, donning the guise of La Muerta.
In her relentless pursuit of justice, Maria violently confronts Brujo, a crime boss / warlock and his sidekick assassin Sangre, “Loco” – a kill-crazy Luchador vigilante, and an ancient, remorseless evil that makes her question her very existence.
What terrible price will Maria pay for the sake of justice?
“In this story we delve deeper into the real costs of a life of vengeance,” says creator Brian Pulido. “It isn’t pretty. That, coupled with the introduction of Loco, our Luchador vigilante make for a combustible combination that fans of dark action and revenge should not miss.”
The La Muerta #1: Vengeance Kickstarter campaign will launch on June 14, 2017 at 7:00PM MST/PDT (Arizona Time) and will end on July 14, 2017 at 7:00PM MST/PDT (Arizona Time). Kickstarter backers will be the first to read this new story, months before it’s released to the general public!
Limited Kickstarter editions will feature cover art by Joel Gomez, Sun Khamunaki, Jenevieve Broomall, Mike Krome, Jesse Wichmann, Matt Merhoff, Richard Ortiz and David Harrigan!
