About

Welcome to the world where every day is Halloween!!

Pump-King & His Buddies 2015 is the pilot issue of the All Ages comic book anthology intended to entertain the audiences on an annual basis. 3 short stories (we like to call them Treats) contain some of the flagship characters, bound to repeat appearances in the future. Catch them attempting baby steps.

The Treats:                                                                                                                          Every Kid Wants To Be A Cowboy                                                               Art by: Byron Fong

Tales portraying the merciless times of the Old West, have never been kind to weak characters.  It was a man's world, where buckaroos always followed their own stars. What kid doesn't dream of growing up, to do just that?

Pump-King in: the X-FARM 

No one knows what it's like to be someone else, until they walk a mile in their shoes. This is where pumpkins learn what and how it's like to be a human. Why? Were you expecting it the other way around? Not a chance.

The Bigger They Are...                  Art: Greg Woronchak                  Colors: Matheus Bronca

There is a running joke in the Kaiju circle about the saying: It takes a fool to ruin the creation of a 1000 wise man. They think it's punny.

About The Creators

Attila Kiss  (He writes, he letters, he draws. Therefore he is. -cough~illeist~)

Hi, I'm a comic book creator from Kelowna, BC.                                                                     Long time ago, I left behind the ancient civilization of Yugoslavia, to explore the unique beauties of Sweden and Hungary, while challenging my creativity, via multiple shocks of the cultural kind. Distilled through imagination, the siphoning of the aforementioned sockdolager, is what awaits you in these stories.

In the same manner as Pump-King relays on his Buddies to fill the book, this project wouldn't be the same if it wasn't for the talents of such great newcomers like: Marie Philippova and Byron Fong, while the experience was supplied by: Matheus Bronca and Greg "The Art Machine" Woronchak (Hellcraft - Owl Comics / Maggie Culpepper - New Pioneer Comics).

About The Funds

Having this comic book printed has been a dream of mine. The money to realize my ambition was meticulously set aside for years. All I need is a little bit of push to get through the finish line. This is where the funds collected from this campaign will help. It will also cover the shipping of the rewards and all the fees associated, with Kickstarter. In case the Goal is surpassed, the extra funds (every penny) will be invested in Pump-King & His Buddies 2016... for which I have some incredible ideas and artists lined up.

Risks and challenges

The art is completed. Printing company selected. The Pumpkin-Faced rewards are in good hands. Greg is one of the fastest and hardest working artist in the business. I think we are well covered. Since this is my first Kickstarter, it will be a learning curve, and some unforeseen challenges might arise. Don't worry, I'll find the way to live up to my promises. Any problems, feel free to contact me. I'll do my best to respond within 24 hours.
