Mike Laws, a troubled misunderstood young adult has his world turned upside down when destiny is thrust down upon him. Is he strong enough to rise to the challenge? Or does Chaos consume him?  Mike Laws has a very dark past, all his life he has battled demons in some shape and/or form.His reality and the world around him is a very harsh place. The only time things ever make sense to him is when he immerses himself into MMORPG games. 

I first started the idea of Aggro8Legends while playing so many different video games. The idea came to me while i was Tanking some boss. I knew i wanted to make something very special. so the brainstorming began, the idea was simple. The goal not so much. the further i started down the rabbit hole, I started to feel i wanted to break away from the traditional way of creating a graphic novel and put all my digital art skills to work. The hurdle was getting the funding to buy the programs & equipment i wished to use with creating this epic tale. At this point it was getting costly and i had to cut back on my dream of finishing this story.

my goal here with this kickstarter campaign is to raise enough money to buy the equipment & get the licenses for the various programs i use to create my characters and have them come to life.

It has been a life long dream to create a graphic novel, I just didnt have the story until a few years ago when things just seemed to fall into place.

the first graphic novel will be 420 pages long in a series that i plan to put out, this first campaign is to kickstart that series. i have 9 graphic novels total planned in the series.

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges for me, is to never see this book published and kept from the public eye. Almost all of the programs and equipment are so far out of my price range, that i knew i needed help. all the funding will go into equipment and programs needed to achieve my goal and get it published.

i guess the reason i started the kickstarter campaign was too really legitimize all the struggles i have gone through to find my place in this world. nothing has ever made sense to me more then creating something from nothing. i have always struggled to find a normal life, but truly what is normal if you cant follow whats in your heart and soul? do i truly have to listen to all the ppl that said i would never amount to anything but a loser? no way, not today, not ever. for me the long road i took has been worth seeing what i do evolve into something i have been proud to do. granted when i began this road the technology and education was never there. youtube, social media did not even exist. at the end of the day i feel really good about it because my intentions are noble and pure of heart.
