Kickstart Your Comic Book Creation

By March 31, 2013

Follow me on:

Did you know that the website Kickstarter.com is the second largest graphic novel publisher in the U.S. according to Publishers Weekly? It beats out DC in terms of revenue off of these graphic novels and is only just behind Marvel. The term "publisher" is a bit loose here in that the company isn't directly responsible for the final product, but the proof that so many comics are created now through Kickstarter is astounding and awesome!

I've been able to talk to a couple of creators about the Kickstarting process in The Only Living Boy and Rumpus on the Run and the whole concept is exhilarating to think about the avenues that are open for creators to make comic books nowadays. Apparently the process isn't that new as according to Kickstarter, even the likes of Beethoven used a form of crowdsourcing to fund his works. Check out if Kickstarter is right for you and how you can take advantage of this great new concept.

I love the fact that there are more ways to get comics out there in graphic novel form. I think that graphic novels a good way to draw in more non comic book readers because they see that they are getting a complete story and it gives comics a better chance to draw them into a monthly title. The new reader might see that if they go to a monthly they will eventually see a complete story eventually unfold. That’s my two cents, anyway. Great article as usual Aaron.
