The Comic: Broken is a video game inspired comic, featuring a boy and his fighter Erin trying to prove to the world that hard work and determination can make your dreams come true.
In the future, the world’s most popular video game is Scrap Battle. An integrated reality game, that features visors that allow a player to see their character in front of them as if they exist in the real world. The player can talk to their character, train their character, and win with their character, by going out and battling other players.
Our story’s main character Patrick loves playing this game, and thoroughly believes that with hard work and determination, you can succeed at this game and in life. However, one day some bullies come along and break his favorite character. He’s too poor to buy another one, and Patrick is left hopeless. Until, Patrick’s next-door neighbor gives him a character he found in the trash, a Princess character named Erin. At first, Patrick doesn’t want to play with Erin, because she’s a princess, she seems weak, and she has a losing history, but little does he know, Erin is a secret character with many hidden abilities that make her "Broken."
Broken’s story structure is influenced by Shōnen Manga and television series like, Avatar: The Last Air Bender, in that it is meant to be an all-ages story that can relate to different generations.
What makes this book cool:
How the Money Will Be Used:
A majority of the funds given will be used to print up to 500 issues of Broken to take to upcoming Comic Conventions, one of those being San Diego Comic-Con in July 2017. The rest of the funds will be used to cover rewards, shipping costs, Kickstarter fees, and convention costs. If we exceed our goal, we would use this money to give extra rewards to our backers, as well print additional copies of the book.

Risks and challenges
The first issue of Broken is complete and just needs to be printed and shipped. So, as long as King Koopa doesn’t kidnap Johnny, Jose, & Paola (Sorry readers, your writer, artist, and colorist are in another castle) everything should be fine.
The books will be shipped on time, if not earlier.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
