About

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!

THE BOOK!

Of course you will receive a copy of the book, you crazies! You have the option to get a PDF edition of the book or a beautiful paper back edition. This book will be jammed up with 75 story pages (or more), Pin-Ups by various artists, behind the scenes sketches and concepts, and a custom sketch drawn into the front cover of all the print editions! 

A POSTER! 

You can get a dope Blood Force Trauma poster in either the 11in x 17in size or a MEGA boy poster in the 24in by 36in size! 

ORIGINAL ART PAGE! 

You also have the option of reserving your own page of original art from the book! The real physical piece of bristol board with all the pencil lines and ink splattered all over the place! For the collectors out there! 

T-Shirt! 

A super dope Blood Force Trauma T-shirt to show off your fandom! Impress your friends with this form fitting garment that will make you the envy of all who would oppose you! 

Jake's Sketchbook! 

Want to see how the book came to be and also see a bunch of other weird doodles? You can get one of Jake's personal sketchbooks to decipher! Packed with original characters and concepts! 

ACTION FIGURES! Our crazy/wacky/ludicrous/amazing goal is to manufacture a few custom  Zap Daniels and Thrash Skullcracker Action figures! If we can make $60,000 we will have these made! I have created mock up figures so you soak in the awesomeness, and imagine how great they would look! 

WE ARE ALSO LOOKING FOR PUBLISHERS IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED CONTACT US!! 

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!
