It feels good to be bad!

The best part? The project is already fully funded, so everything raised from this point should be gravy.

Here’s the official plot synopsis taken from The Buckler’s Indiegogo campaign page:

I’m absolutely thrilled to launch The Buckler! The 50 page graphic novel, featuring the debut of the modern day supervillain. a man who will go to any lengths to take back what’s his, Take control of his own narrative, and seize the city that tried to reject him.
