Hi, I'm Josh Malone, co-founder of Quantum Leap.
BudWorld is my first full-fledged comic venture with Alfred Paul Cabillon, Iloilo's illustrator extraordinaire.
Centered around a magical herb called "bud," our brand-new series revolves around four close friends whose encounters with fiends and smoke fumes change their lives forever. They press on due to a massive upcoming event that ushers one's ideals into reality. Whether it is for the lure of smoking the world's rarest bud or leading society into a promising new era of prosperity, these friends embark on the journey of a lifetime... and reach new highs along the way.
If you'd like to be part of the BudWorld creation process, please contribute a humble donation to help get the first chapter up and running. I appreciate you checking out my page and wish you an irie day—buh buh buh!
