A thousand years after the world ends, demons and corrupt mortals (the undead) will rise. Everything that was once alive has been reanimated. The undead barter for jars of human willpower because it relieves their anguish and feel emotions again. It has become the new drug of the ages, providing the briefest flash of contentment. As a result, the addiction to feeding on man’s will ensnares the undead, allowing them to be controlled by the evil King Ophidian and his Conjurers.
Many of the reanimated women brought their unborn with them. In most cases, the appetite in a new mother was uncontrollable. These children - called Boundead- were born pure. King Ophidian lusts after these children's abilities, conscripting them so he may conquer his enemy’s kingdom. By contrast, the Alpines (who had cast out Ophidian from Zkyon Kingdom) view the children as a major threat and seek to annihilate them.
My name is Mel Rubi, creator of Boundead. After a successful run on comiXology and Amazon Kindle, people have asked when they could obtain a physical copy of issue #1. Initially, I planned to wait until the sixth issue is complete, then print it as a novel. Since fans constantly request for a signed copy, it would only make sense to fulfill their interest. With your support we can finally print the first issue of Boundead. Help me by backing this campaign and I promise that I will make it worth your investment!

Risks and challenges
In order to deliver this project in to your hands without any risk and challenges, I had to find out myself. As a test, I had the book printed to see the quality and how long it would take for the shop to produce and have it ready for shipping. As a result, the book came out amazing and printed very quickly. I can't emphasize enough how impressed I was with the physical copy. So if we meet our goal, I see no problem or any delays to sending Boundead#1 to you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
