Punk Taco is an all-ages fun, whimsical, story about a teenage space taco and his unusual band mates who rock out across the galaxy and go on all kinds of crazy adventures. Punk Taco is all about peace and love and spreading it across the galaxy. Along the way he is met with obstacles he has to overcome but he embraces the challenge and a positive uplifting message is learned.
In this first chapter Punk Taco befriends a young refugee that has been separated from his family and escapes detention. The young alien is lost and starving and finds an unlikely friend in Punk Taco who vows to help reunite him with his family. From there, Punk Taco is kidnapped by another alien race that is desperate for his secret intergalactic-famous Nacho recipe to save them from an evil tyrant that is hell-bent on dominating the galaxy. Did I mention that this is one wacky fun story?
The story is told in a sequential art format for those who love comic books but the product will be published as a hardcover children's book to give it a solid durable feel that both kids and adults enjoy. This will also make it easier for libraries to order copies and get them into the hands of kids in schools across the country.
Punk Taco was created, written and designed by myself and my 5 year old son. I am inking, coloring, lettering and designing the book as well with pencil assists by the super talented Gabriel Mayorga.
We are currently in the process of inking and coloring the book and will be finished with the art in March.
I am looking to raise $4,000.00 to cover the cost of production (Inking, coloring, lettering, editing and design) printing, and shipping. Any extra money will be put into adding more pages of story/art and making the book even more awesome.
I am not offering a lot of rewards outside of autographed copies, sketches and original art because I want to focus all my time on finishing the book.
I don't want to give too much away but here are a few pages of pencil art before they are colored and lettered. I'm going to update this page as much as possible to show you what we are working on. Stay tuned.

If we raise $5,000.00 I will add a new bonus 10-page story to the book.
If we raise $6,0000.00 I will add a new bonus 20-page story to the book.
Risks and challenges
The only risk is if we don't get funded it will take longer to publish this awesomely fun story. You won't lose a dime though. When we do get funded the book will be completed asap and in your hands as soon as it is printed. I've had several successful projects funded on Kickstarter and all my supporters are always very happy. I've published dozens of my own books in the past in the days before crowd funding and I know exactly how to deliver a high quality product.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
