**UPDATE - ADDED STRETCH GOALS**

**UPDATE - ADDED BLEEDING COOL BATTLE DAMAGE REWARD TIER**

New reward tier that lets you have a full body battle damaged version of any MALDEN character sketched inside of your physical copy of MALDEN VOL.1!

THE KICKSTARTER PROJECT 

 The comic will be 60+ page perfect bound comic which covers the first story arc of MALDEN, BURRITO DEATHMARCH, short strips, some behind the scenes sketches, and pinups from various artists. It will be in landscape format.

WHAT IS MALDEN: BURRITO DEATHMARCH?

In their first adventure, BURRITO DEATHMARCH, the denizens of MALDEN (Peter Bear, Evan Gremlin, Casey Penguin) fight Gordito, a Platypus Burrito Lord, and his minion Baron Bok Bok, a Rooster with Cosmic Croquet Mallet over a misunderstanding involving chips and grande burritos.

The comic starts as a typical gag a day comic strip and slowly transforms into a full color comic, mirroring the increase in budget and scale of the battle between the MALDEN trio and Gordito the Playpus Burrito Lord.

Risks and challenges

Higher Tier backers must understand that they will get their rewards at a later date due to time to create custom art for each backer.

Otherwise, once the Kickstarter is backed, I can send the book off to be printed right away.

I will also take comments into consideration and answer questions when I can.
