My name is James “Skip” Harvey and I’m a geek. Not just any geek, I’d like to imagine. I’d like to think I’m the kind of geek that represents the generation that got to see mainstream culture turned on its head and watched the Geek inherit the Earth.
My parents met at the planning committee for a Star Trek convention in Kansas City in 1976. I’m named after James T. Kirk, the “Skipper” of the Enterprise. This is in my blood. It’s who I am.
In 2010 I was honored to be a subject of the Morgan Spurlock documentary Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope, where I started on a long and painful journey to become a professional comic book artist. Now I’m proud to say my first book of a trilogy – Dilettante – is done. Now I need help to put it in print to send it out into the world.

Goals
$349 of $500 per creation
Turns out, setting up a short print run for comics is expensive when you're paying out of pocket. I simply want to print enough to put copies in stores and see how far the book can go. The more I have available the cheaper they will be to distribute, and $500 is a good start.
I don't care about making money from it as much as I want to fulfill my dream of seeing a comic of mine on shelves. Maybe then I can make an impact on anyone whose doubted their dreams as well.
