Walter Walkins' high school life finally seems to be on the up-and-up. Grades are good. acne is going away. He's even becoming friends with the most popular kid at school. What could go wrong? That is, besides a grumpy, shriveled demon climbing down your throat so you can initiate the literal end of the world? Besides that, of course.

Lucy Bune has it rough. Her parents are always fighting. Her older brother is practically nonverbal. And school... just... sucks. And to make matters worse, some random short kid named Walter has targeted her for his delusional prophecies about the end of the world. But that's all just nonsense. Or is it? Because if what he's saying might possibly be true... that would make school start to suck a whole lot more.


'Harbinger' is a comedic take on the end of the world, or rather, the prevention of the end of the world. Told through the perspectives of two high schoolers, this story isn't afraid to get weird. And then some. Not easily definable, the only way to understand what harbinger is all about is to give it a read.
