Second Issue of Supernatural Fantasy “Nyobi Birthright” Now on Indiegogo (Crowdfunding Spotlight)

Earlier this week, independent comic book creator Larry Higgins launched a crowdfunding campaign for the second issue of Nyobi Birthright, a 24-page book that combines action, drama, and supernatural fantasy.

Written by Higgins (Avani: Origins) and featuring illustrations by Samar Samio and colors by Dan Olvera (Puppet Master), issue two completes the story that began with Nyobi Birthright issue one.

Here’s the official pitch taken from the Nyobi Birthright Indiegogo campaign page:

Nyobi Birthright #1 left on a huge cliff hanger ending, with questions and situations left to be resolved. Birthright #2 brings us the conclusion we all have been seeking. More Story, More Action, More Drama as Nyobi stands up for freedom of choice. She must now defend her ideals as she is confronted by one who considers themselves to be a champion of life. All that with an ending that will leave you deep in thought.


Before developing her powers, Nyobi was performing in all-girl J-pop super-group The Geisha Dolls. At age 16, during a meet-and-greet at the Mega-Plex mall in Tokyo, Nyobi’s powers manifested while she was being mobbed by a large group of fans. A ring of light flashed in front of everyone’s eyes and she was gone.

She reappeared at the back of the building, and quickly realized her life was about to change forever.

The media ran nuts with the story. Everyone had their theories as to what happened. ICON Entertainment tried to explain it as a special effect; a stunt. However, one week later, Nyobi appeared on My-Tube and exposed her true nature as a G-Nom to the world…

Backers can get a digital version of Nyobi Birthright issue 2 for $4, while physical copies of the book start at $8. For those with more cash to spend, you can also receive multiple copies of the book and several variant covers to choose from. There’s also options for picking up issue one if you need to catch up. It is also worth noting that there is an additional shipping charge starting at $11 for those in the United States.

The best part? The creative portion of production is 100% complete, so Higgins & Co. will be able to go to press very quickly once the crowdfunding campaign ends.
