WHAT IS KATRINA HATES THE DEAD?
Katrina Hates the Dead is tongue and cheek look at how crappy it would be to live in the Apocalypse. Almost every story about the Apocalypse starts immediately after the Apocalypse begins, showing the horror and terror that follows the first days of living in "Hell on Earth".
Katrina isn't that. In Katrina, the Apocalypse is already old news. It happened years ago. Everything has settled down, and the Hellspawn have taken up residence on Earth. They are next door neighbors to the humans they slaughtered. They eat and work in town. They take hard working humans jobs.
It's a downright sucky row to hoe, but it's every day life. And Katrina, our heroine, is a little sick of fighting monsters, waiting on monsters, and buying her groceries from monsters. She wants her old life back. So she sets out to do something about it.
She sets out to Hell to kill the Devil and end it once and for all.
Katrina Hates the Dead is a non-stop, balls to the wall, thrill ride. Or it would be, if Katrina had balls.
We took that trope as old as time, the Apocalypse, put a new spin on it, and added a ton of comedy elements. This isn't a heavy handed book at all. It's a monster filled, sarcastic, satirical good time.
But don't just take it from me, here's what FANBOY COMICS had to say about Katrina:
"Take it from this Comic Book Slayer, fans of edgy horror comics like Hack/Slash or tongue-in-cheek horror tales like Shaun of the Dead or Zombieland will devour this book like starving zombies devour fresh brains. The creative team behind Katrina Hates the Dead is an impressive one. Artist Juan Frigeri’s work is expressive, exciting, and sets a fun, yet thrilling, tone throughout the story."

THAT'S FINE AND ALL, HOW DO I KNOW THIS BOOK WILL GET DONE?
It's really simple. It's already done. We've already taken it to SDCC 2013 and we already SOLD OUT @ SDCC 2013.
On top of that, this is my second Kickstarter. I raised 150% of my goal and delivered 100% of my pledges for my first one. I've learned from that and will get this book out more quickly and efficiently than the last.
I believe I can turn around this book and get it into your hands within 60 days of the Kickstarter ending.
YOU SOLD OUT SDCC 2013? SO WHY DO YOU NEED ME THEN?
To print more books and do a full release of Katrina. We only printed 75 for SDCC and it wasn't an official release, we were just testing the market.
This is the real deal. This is to launch a book on all mediums and all platforms.
Again, this book is done. It's 100% done. There is literally nothing that needs to be done to this book except get it into your hands.
All you're doing is pre-ordering my book with this Kickstarter. There is no doubt that the book will come out if we successfully fund. No doubt at all, unless the Apocalypse really does come.
Even I can't stop that, great as I am.
LET'S TALK ABOUT THE ARTIST FOR A SECOND, OKAY?
The story is great, and I'm not biased at all, but what would my words be without Juan Frigeri's amazing work.
This was Juan's FIRST full length comic book. Yes, even though it's coming out so much later than some of his other work, this was his FIRST.
Since then he's gone on to draw for Dark Horse and Avatar, among others.
He even drew the DARTH MAUL: SON OF DATHOMIR series for Dark Horse
. That's right. Star Wars y'all. Geek Cred leveled up!
Not to brag, but Katrina did a little bit to launch his career. He's only going to do bigger and better things from here. Katrina is sort of like Juan's origin story.
