About this project

What is Boundead?

Boundead (born of the undead) is a post-apocalyptic science-fiction action, adventure fantasy thriller about finding hope amidst the supernatural entities. Over a thousand years, after judgement day killed most of humanity, the dead great and small comes back to life as monsters. Evil is the new order and all must bow to a living idol. But one named Ayr, who struggles combatively the pain, hate and aggression within in search of peace from a dark world of no hope, will be the guiding light for the weak. This book is put together in a hard(numbered) or soft cover binding of your choice at a standard size, full color american comic book.The first issue of a six part mini series. It will also include sketch tutorial pages.That's right, more drawing tips. For all aspiring artists, here you can learn to pose your characters to look cool and dynamic. This could be beneficial to those wanting to land a job in major publishing company when you present your next portfolio to editors.


My name is Mel Rubi and I'm the creator of Boundead. I've been working on this project for the last eleven years and I would love to share it with you. With your help we can get this to the printers and delivered to your doorstep in no time....yay!


Boundead is the 1st issue of a six mini-series including how to draw dynamic character poses in full color comic book. Down below are a few tutorial figure sketches.

Here's a little bit more about the book.  I've been in the comic world business for over twenty years. If you're wondering why I've come out with a creator-own so late...well, I guess I got comfortable freelancing for different companies...which I enjoyed very much. Over the years of reading scripts, concepting characters and environments, I've accumulated so many great ideas that I've been wanting to use for the right script. That script never came. But the ideas kept piling up year after year until it developed into a story of its own. You see, this idea started over eleven years ago and it just got too big to be tucked away. It wanted to be born and this is the perfect time to manifest it in this book called Boundead.

Where will the funds go?

Printing books can get very expensive and could cost up to $13000, depending on the quality. My goal is to print approximately 2000 copies (soft and hardbound covers).  Posters and other rewards $2250. Package and shipping $500 and Kickstarter & Amazon fees of $1750.  Anything extra will go towards rewards.

I hope you find this book fascinating just as much as I do. Never have I devoted so much time and effort into a single comic book. This project has so much potential and I would love all of you to be a part of it. When we are at the final issue of the mini-series, I plan to have a slip case available for all six books to protect this collection.  So pledge for your copy now, while it's the first print.
