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.
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.
Communing with comics in a bid to clear some of my reading backlog before the start of the new year. One on my list for a few months is Tekkon Kinkreet: Black and White from Taiyo Matsumoto. Very simple, but beautifully rendered black and white artwork, with a story following two street kids with superpowers as they apply their brand of morality to an amoral metropolis.
Strange thoughts courtesy of Jeremy Holt a while ago that started a conversation centred on whether paying comic artists upfront for a project would actually reduce their commitment to said project.
Seems slightly wrong-headed to me, and smacks of the mentality peddled by some in the games industry that devs should makes games for the love of the art, whilst those same pedlars were bathing in the lucre wrung from the hard work of the possibly naive but technically gifted developers…
First post in almost five months. This year has been super frantic, only barely managed to make it to London ComicCon in May and found myself in comic shops on a few occasions where the confluence of cash plus merchandise allowed me to pick up some great new comics over the last few months…
I’ve been getting into sourcing floppies recently from the ladies and gentlemen at one of my favourite graphic art emporiums, Mega City Comics. Its difficult to find the time to pick up issues in person, but the wealth of interesting new material being released at the moment makes it worth the effort. Some of my picks…
