Hello comic book fans, action comedy fans, and fans of good ol' goofy fun in general!

My name is Pharoah Bolding. I am a freelance artist and writer operating out of Portland, Oregon. My work has appeared in various publication and art exhibits over the last few years but my first love is making comics. Not just any ol' comics, but comics that everyone can enjoy! Fun, action-packed, humorous tales where a hero is much more than a sandwich, mainly because they come with large fries and a Coke!

I've had a lot of fun making these kinds of comics, but my current pet project has to be the most fun I've ever had drawing and writing a comic series! It's called The Dot and it is an all-ages action-adventure miniseries that reads like a classic Saturday morning cartoon! 

Who (Or What) Is The Dot?

The Dot is an all-ages action-adventure comedy series starring, well, The Dot! He is a superhero like no other - super-durable, super-strong, super-agile, and bumbling as all get-out! He's a simpleton but his heart is in the right place and he always saves the day!

The Dot's universe is equal parts homage to the classic staples of superhero comics and parody . . . of the classic staples of superhero comics! This makes The Dot's exploits not only accessible to fans of old and new comics alike but readers of all ages and comic knowledge! If you like shows like Adventure Time and Chowder and classic Saturday morning action cartoons then The Dot is for you!

I am ready to launch The Dot into the world at-large with his own three-issue miniseries! This miniseries will establish the character, a couple of his major villains, and tell his cooky origin! But I need you guys and gals to help me make the first Dot miniseries a reality!

How Can I Help?

My goal is to do a simple print run of all three planned issues of The Dot! In order to do that I need at least $600. A simple print run for each issue costs around $200 with shipping. Each book will be of professional-level quality standards, in magazine format with full-color covers. Trust me when I say that they will look swanky!

By helping me raise my goal you not only get some great donation gifts but copies of the three comics that will make up the miniseries!

If I can reach my goal the first issue will be in your hands by August (Issue 1 is around 70% complete as of right now)! Any excess funds will be put toward the next miniseries and possibly even a new series I have planned - a series that all who donate to this campaign will have first stab at!

So if you can donate anything to the cause please do! Every little bit helps! And if you can't donate please feel free to spread the word! Tweet this, blog this, post it on Facebook! As far as I'm concerned spreading the word is just as good as monetary donations!

Thank you for taking the time to check us out - and EXCELSIOR!
