Long time since Jamie Delano’s Hellblazer “Original Sins” run was read, so excuse to came in the form of sub-orbital flight… “streets are the hardened arteries that lead to the city’s dead heart…” Damn son! Love the language, need to dig out the rest of the back issues.
During brief journey to space, loved Ed Piskor’s Wizzywig, which drew a historic hacking map of the lives of folks like Kevin Mitnick, Phrack Magazine and the GURPS Cyberpunk raid through the fictional hacker Kevin “Boingthump” Phenicle. Worth a read, and you can pick it up from Top Shelf Comix :).
Onwards, ever onwards to Part 3 of a collection of musings, spurred on from completing a Kickstarter project for a new Indie comic, BaadFood (which today, you can purchase as a physical copy on Etsy http://etsy.me/2FfAbpO, or digitally through ComiXology http://bit.ly/2BH3G4r.)
Continuing with things that you can do before starting the Kickstarter to improve your chance of funding. A successful Kickstarter is most definitely front loaded!
Here then, lies Part 2, of a collection of musings, spurred on from completing a Kickstarter project for a new Indie comic, BaadFood (which today, you can purchase as a physical copy on Etsy http://etsy.me/2FfAbpO, or digitally through ComiXology http://bit.ly/2BH3G4r.)
This post continues looking at tasks that you can do before starting the Kickstarter to improve your chance of funding.
“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.
You can find the project here, https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1961353225/baadfood-1
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.
