GREETINGS FROM WEBCOMICS LAND: KICKSTARTER MY HEART?

As we approach our fourth anniversary at Champion City Comics we are planning our most ambitious project to date which is a 64 page full color steampunk anthology. An amazing creative team has been assembled, and we also have the very talented artist Steve Bryant on board to design the cover for our anthology. The steampunk anthology is going to happen, but how it will be delivered to the masses is becoming another question.

Initially we were going to create the anthology, and then develop a Kickstarter project to cover costs for publishing. Everything about Kickstarter appealed to me at first, but I then began to wonder if creating a Kickstarter page, making a promotional video, writing up a convincing testimony, and providing our backers with an ample supply of incentives was worth it in the long run. After awhile it seemed that we were adding more work to our anthology which made Kickstarter more of a nuisance.

I'm not here to rant against Kickstarter because creators have the right to find the best method of funding their projects. From my point of view, it seems easier to apply for a line of credit, work with a publisher, present our work to Diamond for distribution, and get our comic book printed when we have an agreement with Diamond for distributing our comic book.

This blog entry falls under the short and sweet category for verbage, but am I crazy to think Kickstarter is more work than it is worth?
