SINOPSIS FIRST CHAPTER
The veteran captain Ivvro has been recruited again, to command a hard convicts' squadron, in the long war against the black elfs.
During the battle a mysterious fog traps them on a chaotic strange land, where they will have to fight another war, this time to survive as group.
Lost and spread in this new land, they´ll try to regroup to find the way back home, but it will not be easy: the strange mist that surrounds them ,also changes everything on its path, making impossible any attempt of creating a map, and carrying inside creatures of other worlds, so lost as them, who also will try to survive in this hostile land.
This creatures won´t be the only ones the Brigade will face.
During ages creatures of all kind have been dropped here on this strange limbo.
And some of them, like the human ones, seem to have adapt well to this environment, creating solid groups of population that the destructive mist seems to respect and leave intact.
If the key for survival in this land would be the strenght of the group, captain Ivvro will face a hard work, and will need alliances even with his most fierce enemies.
As a comic book artist, this is a profesional step I´ve been wishing to do for a long time : self-edition. It´s great to have the chance of producing one work, managing it from beginning to the end, made in a way that could go directly from my desk to your hands, the reader.
And this crowdfunding method could be the perfect way. I wish it is! Because this way I also can offer you a lot of additional stuff (storyboards, roughs, etc) that usually get forgotten in a box.
I´ve been doing my best so this work would be the most affordable I can. That´s the reason of the price of the book. It´s the same or even cheaper than the one you could find on your usual bookshop, but with the advantage of being send directly to your home.
¡And for some little more you can add a lot of extras that I hope you will find interesting!
Lowering that much the price of the book makes the initial investement to be that high (a higuer print to reduce costs).
To achieve that initial investment the publicity of the project has to be as big as posible, and that´s why I ask you that, if you like my work, spread the word and help the project born.
On my side I´ll keep adding promotional stuff and updating the site frequently.

One of the jewels of the crown!
One good reason to make the book funded this way is the chance of creating an incredible exclusive resin miniature sculpture, 12 cm tall (9cm the figure+ 3cm the base), of one of the main characters of the book, ERWIN.
It will be made by the great sculptor Fausto Gutiérrez, from Yedharo Models.
( visit also his new blog here )
Completely mounted and painted !!
NOTE: we can not start the work on the sculpture until we get the complete funds, but we want to grant you the top best quality of this work, from design to modeling and painting.
We show you a pic with the pose we will use, and we are completely open to any question you may have about this reward.
-The colors of the final painted item will be the ones shown on the book.-
An A4 (21 X 29,7 cm) original artwork of a Brigade character made on demand!
**This one will be an exclusive reward of the Verkami edition!*
(When the funding ends, I will contact those of you who asked for this reward, and we´ll talk about what you may want on it)
There are two types of rewards: Including shippings for Spain or Rest of the World.

This budget is made to cover all the print costs, creation and basic sending of all the items, and my salary during the months I will be creating the book exclusively.
