Dominic & Claire Fun-Size stars the adorable kitten Dominic and the perky teenager Claire in a collection of funny segments!  In this remarkable spin-off of Max West's Sunnyville Stories, watch as Claire's father teaches Dominic about respecting property (and failing), a friend of Dominic literally holding up a building and Dominic soliciting Chester (Claire's Brother) for a local charity with uproarious results!  These modern hijinks will leave you chortling with good old-fashioned laughter!

Dominic wears his raccoon costume to Claire's house.
Dominic shares his thoughts with Claire's father on aftershave.
  •  Dominic & Claire Fun-Size collects 16 black & white pages filled with chucklesome laughs!
  • Portable digest size (5.5 x 8.5 inches) comic book!!
  • Simple yet clear artwork + straightforward humor = FUN FOR EVERYONE!
Dominic and his teacher - who is teaching who here?!

Dominic & Claire already got rousing reviews in their first outing, the Dominic & Claire Funnies.  Just look at these blurbs courtesy of DriveThru Comics:


 ABOUT ME

M. West at his drawing table

 Max West (me) is the creator of Dominic & Claire, learning comics by trial & error and at night school...but mostly trial & error.  

 I've been drawing comics for awhile now; I am also the creator of Sunnyville Stories, which features Dominic's teenage cousin Rusty.  This comic of mine has gotten sensational reviews...but don't take my word for it.  Just look at some of the Amazon reviews:

Did I mention I've had three successful Kickstarters in the past?

Why am I doing this Kickstarter?  It is because I want to make people chuckle & guffaw with more stories involving this comic duo and there's little (if any) humor print comics available any more.  Honestly, whatever happened to making people laugh?  The guiding principle for Dominic & Claire and Dominic's motivation comes from that song..."make'em laugh, make'em laugh, don't you know everyone wants to laugh?"

We are here on Kickstarter to raise US$800 to print a 500 copy run of my digest comic Dominic & Claire Fun-Size.  My goal is to get this funny comic into the hands of comics readers.

So what will the US$800 be used for?  Printing the comics will cost about $410; the printer is here in the USA, has a quick turnaround time and even has free shipping to me!  Shipping costs of the comics and other rewards will run around $141 with packaging for said rewards costing $87.  Promoting the campaign will cost about $83.  Everything else will go to cover processing fees, Kickstarter's take and any unforeseen challenges.

Risks and challenges

The big challenges this time is that this Kickstarter will be bigger than my previous ones, meaning more backers and more rewards to send out.

As I reside in North Dakota, there is also the brutal winters to deal with. We get snow as early as October and late as April! This could slow down mailing times for rewards.

I aim to meet those challenges no matter what. In addition to keeping all of you out there up to date on my progress, I have come through on my past three successful Kickstarters when it comes to shipping rewards.
