Is Tim Lee Olson’s “Melvin” the “Ultimate Action Comic?”

Aspiring comic book creator Tim Lee Olson has been prepping his upcoming project Melvin for quite some time. Inspired by the style of the mid-90s, Olson developed quite a passion for comic book artwork. Since then, he’s honed his skills and begun crafting Melvin as a sci-fi fantasy book which Olson boastingly refers to as the “ultimate action comic EVER!!!” Hey, he used all caps and the three exclamation points. I just quoted him.

Can he deliver? To start, here’s the official pitch taken from the Melvin Indiegogo pre-launch page:

On the planet of Holara, Melvin must travel the barren cities, laid waste by cultists, that has captured the princess of this once great planet. Not only will Melvin fight a cult, but many creatures lurking in the surrounding jungle.

Olson currently plans to launch an Indiegogo campaign to fund the book in December. While we all wait, you can sign up for email updates on the Melvin Indiegogo pre-launch page here. If you do sign up, Olson has promised that you will receive a bonus sticker and button when you back the book.
