“Failing to plan, is planning to fail” was the mantra which slowly burrowed its way through my subconscious with the horse power of a Eurotunnel excavator. I had been close to getting the final artwork in place to release BaadFood Issue 1 (which today, you can get a physical copy from Etsy http://etsy.me/2FfAbpO if you so please, or digitally through ComiXology http://bit.ly/2BH3G4r) and my first Kickstarter campaign was slowly coalescing from digital fragments spread across various devices, spreadsheets, textfiles, images, music and a video which outlined what it was that would be done.
Here captured, across multiple posts, lay varied musings from this completed project which readers may find helpful in running their own Comics based Kickstarter.
Issue 1 of BaadFood, a new Sci-Fi comic series looking at the interactions between a couple of Human-Standard twenty-somethings and the robots, AI, altered-humans and ageing in a near-future job market, is up on Kickstarter now. The project is looking for funds to print the first issue and complete the front and back covers.
The Kickstarter launched on Saturday the 22nd of April, lasts for 30 days, and has art from Angelo Dazo famous for Deadpool: Merc With A Mouth and Thunderbolts, colouring from Davi Correia (BSG: Starbuck), lettering from Ken Reynolds (Sliced Quarterly and Cognition) and writing from Nic Ho Chee.
It looks like Maker culture took off big-style this year, with a set of great digital synth kits out, and the new Roland Aira/System series looking lush. Take a look at a nice rundown of the top 10 digital units over at Attack Magazine :).
