The Hit Graphic Novel Series From ULTRAMAN Comics Co-Writer Mat Groom and CAPTAIN MARVEL Artist Erica D’Urso is Now Crowdfunding on Kickstarter


(September 6, 2023) Writer Mat Groom and artist Erica D’Urso are currently crowdfunding INFERNO GIRL RED: BOOK ONE and BOOK TWO on Kickstarter — and they’ve just released some exciting new reward tiers for backers:

  • ENTER THE MASSIVE-VERSE – THE ULTIMATE MASSIVE-VERSE PACKAGE!, which will allow one lucky backer to be drawn into EVERY Massive-Verse title: RADIANT BLACK, ROGUE SUN, INFERNO GIRL RED: BOOK TWO, NO/ONE and THE DEAD LUCKY. The recipient will also receive an original physical illustration of them standing alongside the main heroes of the Massive-Verse (Inferno Girl Red, Radiant Black, Rogue Sun, No/One and Bibi from The Dead Lucky), as well as a digital colored version.

  • SCRIPT/OUTLINE/PITCH REVIEW BY KYLE HIGGINS AND MICHAEL BUSUTTIL!, which will allow ten lucky backers a chance to get their most promising script, outline or pitch document sharpened by legendary comics writer Kyle Higgins (RADIANT BLACK, BATMAN: GATES OF GOTHAM, NIGHTWING, MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS) and Massive-Verse editor Michael Busuttil (RADIANT BLACK, ROGUE SUN, NO/ONE).

  • PORTFOLIO REVIEW BY ERICA D’URSO AND KYLE HIGGINS!, which will allow ten lucky backers a chance to get their most promising comics page (or cover) samples reviewed by IGR artist/co-creator Erica D’Urso (INFERNO GIRL RED, THE MIGHTY VALKYRIES, HEROES REBORN) and writer/editor Kyle Higgins!

  • OWN AN ORIGINAL ART PAGE FROM IGR: BOOK TWO!, a one-of-a-kind piece of IGR history for five lucky backers.

  • DESIGN AN INFERNO GIRL RED, which will allow one lucky backer to work with IGR artist/co-creator Erica D’Urso to design their very own Inferno Girl Red, who will appear in a sequence of INFERNO GIRL RED: BOOK TWO, as well as a pencil sketch of their collaborative creation from Erica D’Urso herself!

In 2021, an explosively successful Kickstarter campaign helped writer Mat Groom (Marvel Comics’ ULTRAMAN and Image’s ULTRAMASSIVE) and artist Erica D’Urso (CAPTAIN MARVEL and XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS) deliver the 125-page graphic novel INFERNO GIRL RED: BOOK ONE–– which combined the high school super-heroic drama of INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE with the dynamic storytelling and world-building of Japanese tokusatsu superheroes, and the intrigue and relationship drama of British boarding school fiction. Now, they’re returning to Kickstarter to tell the next chapter in the story of legendary hero INFERNO GIRL RED in INFERNO GIRL RED: BOOK TWO. Groom and D’Urso will be joined by the entire original creative team, including colorist Igor Monti (RADIANT BLACK, DEEP CUTS), letterer Becca Carey (ROGUE SUN, REDLANDS), editor Kyle Higgins (RADIANT BLACK, NIGHTWING, MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS) and design agency FOR THE PEOPLE. The new campaign invites readers into the world already loved by thousands, with an opportunity to access both INFERNO GIRL RED: BOOK ONE and BOOK TWO in either digital or deluxe, oversized hardcover forms.

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. 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! 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 Kickstarter edition of INFERNO GIRL RED: BOOK TWO will be the perfect accompaniment to the Kickstarter edition of BOOK ONE, with the same oversized, deluxe hardcover format, and a new, exclusive Kickstarter-only cover with Kickstarter exclusive behind-the-scenes materials. This edition will feature 120 pages of story (with behind-the-scenes materials and informational pages additional to this page count).
