Websites like Kickstarter have opened up a vast new source of funding for comic creators to make a leap from web to print. But it’s not as easy as just clicking a link! We are going to talk about the ups and downs of crowdfunding in this episode.
First, Mathieu Moyen of 6-Commando interviews Jason Brubaker, the creator of Sithrah and reMIND, about his experiences with using Kickstarter, and thoughts on why people still want to own physical books in the digital age.
In the second part of the episode, Ewa of Bits Fair leads a roundtable discussion with Christina Major (Sombulus), Ben Fleuter (Derelict and The Sword Interval) and Ally Rom Colthoff (Chirault) about planning, running and fulfilling a crowdfunding campaign.
