Rise of the White Phoenix is a comic about a young girl named Luisa who wants to become a Luchadora: a Mexican wrestler. Luisa has been keeping her fighting a secret from her father, who does not approve, but he's been keeping secrets too...
In Book One, Luisa is determined to find out if she has what it takes to go pro. Does she have the skill? Can she handle the pressure?

The funding of this project is to cover the print costs for the physical 6 x 9 softcover book!
Book 1 includes the 16 page prologue story (read here!) and the 36 page chapter 1.
Set in Mexico in the 1950s, a golden age for Lucha Libre, we follow the triumphs and struggles of Luisa as she makes her debut in the wrestling scene. Becoming a Luchador is not going to come easy.
Fighting family, society, corruption and even your own doubts, it isn't easy trying to live your dreams of wearing costumes and kicking butts...

Risks and challenges
This is my second time running a Kickstarter, so I have experience planning, running and finishing a project.
As with any print project, there may be small delays as I get book proofs and make edits.
The print shop I have chosen is one I haven't worked with before, but is well known for excellence and many of my peers have had beautiful books printed through them.
I will do my best to get rewards out in a timely manner, but I expect longer ship times for overseas backers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
