BLOOD FORCE TRAUMA is the name of Edge City's most popular fighting tv show! The most savage warriors from all the known dimensions gather to our world so they can battle to the death! Only the most brutal will survive!
Our story revolves around ZAP DANIELS! He is an avid video game/hacking enthusiast and a huge fan of BLOOD FORCE TRAUMA, until he is unwillingly drafted onto the show!! Now he must use his intelligence and the help of a couple ex BFT Champions to train his body and learn some outrageously devastating abilities! If he wants to survive this season of BLOOD FORCE TRAUMA he'll have to defeat an onslaught of ridiculous characters! All with their own bloodthirsty weapons and powers! This is gonna be a fight!
The comic book is set in an 80s-esque neon cyberpunk grungy world, filled with wacky characters! The book is a kind-of love letter to fans of fighting games, anime, and wrestling and in particular stuff like Street Fighter, Tekken, Mega Man, Metroid, DragonBall Z, Akira, Bladerunner, Fatal Fury, Streets of Rage, and a whole lot more!
If you're a geek and love comics and video games you'll dig BLOOD FORCE TRAUMA!
The Book will be 70 pages! Every $1000 dollars we make past our goal, we will add 10 more story pages!
The money we make will go towards the production of a printed Paperback Graphic Novel, as well as the various rewards and shipping.
This is only a fraction of characters that will be popping up in the book! Zap will encounter a whole fighting game's worth of murderous barbarians hell-bent on destroying him! Hope he survives!
We're gonna have a bunch of rad pin ups for you guys from different artists! Keep checking back as we add more and more as they come in!

Thank you guys so much! We love you and hope you'll donate and share with your friends!
Risks and challenges
The money from the campaign will go towards the printing and shipping of the book and all other rewards to you guys! The biggest risk that comes with a project like this is the shipping. On my last campaigns packages sent with USPS were frequently lost in delivery, requiring me to send free replacement packages that ate into my personal funds. I hope to avoid that this time by using Amazon's shipping services, as I have heard they are more reliable.
Other than that, we just have to not die before the book is made!
