Sequential Underground #70 - Crowdfunders

Sequential Underground

Nick Marino and Shawn Atkins chat with three dedicated cartoonists who are working to crowdfund print editions of their webcomics.

Heather Nunnelly (co-host of the AudioShocker's VACANT Bits podcast) wants to create a graphic novel of the first six issues of VACANT. She's steadily been working to reach her funding goal on Kickstarter (and as of today, she's fully funded! YAY!!).

Dave Wachter (who appeared on last year's Sequential Underground #33) has exceeded his Kickstarter goal for a hardcover collection of The Guns of Shadow Valley. Thanks to extremely careful planning and thoughtful incentives, Dave has created a successful campaign.

Burned by past attempts at crowdfunding, Solomon Mars (often found leaving deep thoughts in the AudioShocker comments) has opted to microfund a print edition of Goblyn through commissions. Appealing directly to fans on deviantART, he's creating a print option for readers while avoiding the stress of a failed campaign.

On this podcast, these three creators share their diverse crowdfunding experiences, offering advice to listeners (and often taking advice from each other).

Also, shoutout to listener Devon Purkiss. He's running a Kickstarter campaign for his western comic book, The Cowboy and the Goliath. Check it out!

    I don't remember which season it's from, but my favorite ALF memory is from an episode where ALF digs a pond in the back yard. There's a scene where Willie walks into the back yard and falls into it. He starts yelling at ALF and ALF replies "I made a boo boo". Willie retorts "a boo-boo?". It isn't so much the line that stuck out but the delivery of the line by Max Wright. I recall myself and my whole family losing it at that moment. For years after we would often recite the line and laugh all over again.

    I'm an idiot, how my ALF repsone ended up on the Sequntial Underground page is beyond me. Once I think of something to blame it on other than myself, I'll let you know!

    Maybe something supernatural is happening on the site? That could explain the mysterious comment confusion.

    so much insight, i'm really glad i heard this before i start planning out my kickstarter for Dinogeddon! and thanks for the shout-out, Heather! i'm not sure if i helped much, but i'm happy if i helped in any small way. ;) i love David and Solomon's work! i agree with everyone else; Solomon definitely should branch out and try to get his stuff out there more! his style's really unique and appealing!

    I think in general webcomics are often clumsy to read & so offering them as a PDF/CBZ is a good way to go.
