Across the galaxy, an evil, tyrannical king has enslaved citizens from countless planets using them as soldiers in his quest for domination. When one young refugee is displaced from his family, Punk Taco and his band of misfits befriend him and vow to reunite their new friend with his loved ones. With a mysterious alien race, they join forces to battle the mad king and spread peace, love and unity across the cosmos. Action, adventure and humor abound in this tale of kindness and understanding conceived and written by Adam Wallenta and his six-year-old son, Makana.
“Truth, justice and the quest for perfect nachos! PUNK TACO is a fun-filled comic book burrito… an important tale of optimism wrapped in candy-colored art. Creator Adam Wallenta created PUNK TACO with his son, Makana. The result is a rockin’ all-ages book that can be enjoyed by parents and kids alike. All that’s missing is a side of guacamole!”
The charismatic leader. A sentient alien taco, who sings and plays guitar, rocking out and spreading peace and love throughout the galaxy, Punk Taco is truly one of a kind. Fun loving and adventurous, Punk Taco is always willing to help those in need. He is a compassionate, empathetic soul that always stands with the downtrodden and despises bullies and tyrants. We won’t even get into his intergalactic-famous nachos…
The master planner. Dahlila is the keyboardist and manager of the band. Like Punk Taco, she loves to help people and has a heart of gold but is also a bit suspicious of anyone taking advantage of Punk Taco’s kindness. Sometimes she has to play “bad cop” to keep everyone focused on their job- making music and performing to sold out crowds. Thanks to her, the band has had numerous hit records all over the galaxy, that help fund their crazy adventures, and allow them to provide assistance to those in need.
The reluctant adventurer. Bovo is the bassist of the band and also works hard to make sure everyone eats healthy, nutritious meals while out touring the galaxy performing. Bovo is quiet and reserved, some may even say shy or timid, but when he’s on stage rocking out you would never know it. He may kick and fuss as his friends drag him into another crazy adventure but no matter what he is always a reliable friend that will stand by their side.
The musical warrior. Bash comes from a race of warriors that are legendary for protecting the peaceful monks of Traboora from the horsed of Nasardak. However Bash is unusually small for his species and was not allowed to join the ranks of his people. Luckily for him he discovered his incredible talent for playing the drums and teaming up with Punk Taco, he gets to show off his inherit warrior nature plenty on their many adventures helping those in need.
