Badang the superhero with supernatural strength receives a royal command to abduct a princess from the Kingdom of Majapahit. And a war ensues.
Badang: the Untold Story is a retelling of Badang, a mythical heroic figure from the Malay folklore, with a new interpretation to make the tale more appealing. Badang is a palace guard during the reign of Raja Iskandar Shah of Melaka circa 1400, and he fights many battles for his King.
A group of indie artistes will undertake the retelling of Badang in a new, refreshing manner; much influenced by the style of Ashley Wood, Frank Miller and Alex Ross.

WE NEED YOU BECAUSE:
Art in Malaysia needs support from everyone. Badang: the Untold Story is a project that we want the country to be proud of. We want to bring Malaysian art to the next level; that is the international arena. If this project is successful, it will have a positive effect on other independent and freelance artistes looking to have their works published.
WHAT WE NEED & WHY:
USD3,000 for printing purposes, among others. We need to source for good, quality paper to print 1,000 copies the 80-page book, bound with thick covers. The fund too will be used partially to produce special limited editions paraphernalia for the people who support the project and make pledges.
