What happens when a comic book character comes to the end of her run? You kill her of course! This is what Dan Parent and Fernando Ruiz have decided to do
The veteran Archie creators are at the beginning of a Kickstarter campaign to fund this exciting project... and here is the pitch...
"Kitty Ravencraft, a beautiful and magical young witch, is the star of her own popular comic book. When her greedy, publicity-starved publisher wants to increase interest in her comic book, he does what many comic book publishers do nowadays... he sets out to kill his main character, Kitty! Even worse, he decides to REALLY spike sales by killing the REAL Kitty in REAL life! The question is though... how do you kill a witch? "DIE, KITTY! DIE!" is a funny, exciting, and often sexy story about a girl caught in both the supernatural world of witches, and the super-crazy world of comics!"

And here is a bit about the duo...
"Some of you may not know us but we've been in the comic business for over twenty years. We've produced many popular, high-selling comics for other publishers, e.g. Archie Meets Kiss, Archie Vs Predator, Felix the Cat, etc. Over the years, we've often talked about the possibility of doing something together that is creator owned, and the timing for this has finally arrived. "Die Kitty Die!" will be a collaborative effort where we'll share writing and art duties. This will be our first joint effort under own new label, Astrocomix (it just sounds better than Parent & Ruiz comics, you know?)
We hope this venture will prove popular enough that we can produce more books and possibly launch more projects! You can read more about us individually at our own web-sites: danparent.com and fernandoruizeverybody.com And for more Kitty info there's diekittydie.com and her Facebook page here.
