  Shaman's Destiny is a 6 issue comic mini-series. The story revolves around a young shaman named Malik, who is entrusted by the spirit of the earth, Gaea, to protect our world. Along the way, he is joined by his mentor/ best friend Jeph. Malik's adventures will be filled with peril and intrigue and shows how he grows from a young man into the true protector of our world.

   My goal is to take the 6 black and white issues I had planned and turn it into 1 full color trade paperback, filled with behind the scenes material, guest pin ups and more.

Risks and challenges

I currently have 5 of the 6 issues completed at the launch of this Kickstarter. Issue 6 is halfway completed. I'm giving myself a cushion to ensure if there are any difficulties I have time to correct them.

My biggest concern is ensuring I meet all the deadlines to get the trade and your rewards out to you as quickly as possible. There are a lot of moving parts with something this big and I need to stay on task to ensure everything goes smoothly.

I am confident though, that things will ship on time. I have a strong group behind the scenes that will keep me on the right track towards completing things.
