About

Lars, Lunchbox and The Quasmo D (Rise of The Dark Wraith) is set in Washington D.C. in February 1964. This graphic novel is a magical mixture of raw excitement and mesmerizing suspense, where canines with remarkable intelligence, personality, and appearance co-exist with humans in an everyday environment.

An East-West Romance: Larissa is a cultural attaché attached to the Russian Embassy who makes the mistake of falling in love with The Quasmo D, a devastatingly handsome American with his own particular issues. It is a move that makes her less than popular with her Communist comrades, in particular Comrade Mironoff, a shadowy charlatan with his own malign agenda.

An Obsessed Fan: Lunchbox is an overweight Pug who is on a desperate mission to meet his idols, The Whirligigs, an Irish super-group just arrived on their initial United States tour. Ultimately, this obsession will force Lunchbox to choose between his dreams and his own secure world.

An Assassin: Meanwhile, FBI Special Agent "Nitro Jim" Matoon, on the trail of a political killer and unstoppable villain known as The Dark Wraith, is abruptly ordered off the investigation and assigned to another murder case. Not one to put up with being pushed, Agent Matoon swears that he will confront and capture the killer of his beloved daughter.

An Alliance: Our unflappable heroes are drawn into a web of deceit, ultimate power and unfathomable mysteries. The conflict between the love for one's own and the love for one's country is delved into deeply as is the nature of loyalty… and extreme betrayal.

Lars, A.K.A. Larissa Vinka Vassiloff, is a human female, and just arrived cultural attaché to the Soviet Embassy. 

Lunchbox, A.K.A. Phineas Floom is a canine Pug and a delivery driver for Esmeralda’s Green Goodies. 

The Quasmo D, A.K.A. Marmaduke Middleton Mellows, Triple M, is a human male and international playboy. 

Comrade Ivan Zlinkov Mironoff is a canine Caucasian Ovtcharka and the high-ranking military attaché within the Soviet Embassy. 

Gregor Karlov is Comrade Mironoff’s rather smarmy and manipulative human assistant. 

In the background to Comrade Mironoff and Gregor Karlov are the Super-Borzoi, genetically enhanced and merciless canines. 

Elsha “Babyface” McGloin is a canine Dandie Dinmont Terrier and the bass guitarist for the Irish super-group The Whirligigs. 

Keara “Kittie” Kirkbride A.K.A. "The Blonde Venus" is a canine West Highland White Terrier and the groups lead guitarist. 

Moncha “Sapphire” McShayne is a canine English Toy Spaniel and the drummer of the group. 

Glennis “Toots” O’Grady A.K.A. "The Gorgeous Gael" is a canine Poodle and the rhythm guitarist of the super-group. 

F.B.I. Special Agent “Nitro Jim” Matoon is a human male and a champion of justice and the rigor of law. 

The Dark Wraith is a political assassin, appreciable menace and implacable foe, as the mystery of his identity parallels the mystery of his motive.

“Muscles” McCandless is a canine Bulldog and the current (W.W.G.) World Wrestling Group professional heavyweight champion. 

Her name is Tamiko “Ching-Ching” Toshi. She is a canine Japanese Chin and martial arts Grandmaster. 

Karlino Groffanino, called "The Brown Butcher" for the way he cuts up his opponents, is a canine Beagle and the World’s Heavyweight Boxing Champion. 

Dippy Blake is a human male and master poker player who considers himself a poetic genius, but really writes jingles for advertisements. 

They call her Adora Peabody. She is a canine Bichon Frise and a manicurist, who is pure as a wild flower and shy as a squirrel. 

Helmut Heinz Schroeder is a canine Schnauzer, biker, fighter, lover, and a fervent anti-Communist with a rowdy temperament. 

“Red Cap” O’Shaughnessy is a canine Kerry Blue Terrier and a third-generation, hard-working firefighter. 

Major Yuri Konstantine Rippage is a human male and Soviet defector in the employment of the Whirligigs as their bodyguard.

Arno LaRue is a canine Papillon with a French accent, and a rather pugnacious dentist with ‘short canine disease’.

Kickstarter member, these are ‘just a few’ of the unique characters to the upcoming graphic novel Lars, Lunchbox and The Quasmo D (Rise of The Dark Wraith), with another (12) characters to the novel yet to be drawn up.      

Risks and challenges

My personal goal is to create and finish a 'MINIMUM' of (30) and a 'MAXIMUM' of (50) graphic novels over the next 6-8 years, and will be working very, very hard to create and finish (10) graphic novels by the end of 2015. Each graphic novel will be posted here on Kickstarter first in the same type of form as this current graphic novel.

The Risks: There are very few here. The awesome Bulgarian illustrator Vencislav Velikov... presently on my Facebook page... is going to finish drawing up the graphic novel, but Kickstarter members have to give him time to complete it, that's why the date of delivery is sometime in December. I hope everyone is 'SUPER UNDERSTANDING' of that. I also will be contracting overseas for the printing of the graphic novel, the Cast of Characters book and the poster. That process has already begun.

The Challenges: I see very few challenges except for acquiring the needed capital, translated, compensating the illustrator, to complete this first graphic novel. This is the first step of my graphic novel journey and I just need a little belief at this point that I can get the job done.
