Inferno Girl Red is back on Kickstarter
Inferno Girl Red is written by Groom, illustrated by D’Urso, colored by Igor Monti, and lettered by Becca Carey. Book One was initially published as a three-issue limited series from January 2023 to March 2023 following a massively successful Kickstarter campaign in 2021. A trade paperback collection hit shelves in June 2023. The series is part of Image Comics‘ Massive-Verse, which also includes titles like Radiant Black and Rogue Sun.
Groom and D’Urso’s latest Kickstarter seeks to fund the upcoming Inferno Girl Red: Book Two, as well as a new edition of Book One to accompany it. At the time of writing, the campaign has made $56,393 of its $85,000 goal, with two weeks to go.
“When her new home of Apex City was ripped out of existence and cast into darkness, Cássia Costa had to embrace an ancient power to become the legendary hero INFERNO GIRL RED. She rose to the challenge, pushing herself farther than she ever thought possible — but though Cássia protected the city from its first major threat, it cost her dearly,” an official synopsis for Book Two reads.
“Now, still reeling from a heartbreaking loss, Cássia must forge a relationship with a new mentor, and expand an unlikely team — because the consequences of her previous ‘victory’ have come back to haunt her, and a villainous duo is on the rise!” it continues. “A fraught potential romance beckons, a long-held secret threatens to be revealed, and an unimaginable choice could see Apex City left defenseless! Can Cássia navigate it all … or even survive it all?”
The Inferno Girl Red: Book One and Book Two campaign is live on Kickstarter now.
