With Kickstarter now an accepted part of promoting and publishing indie comics, it’s become common for cartoonists to take part in communal crowdfunding campaigns for anthologies and other group projects.
On this podcast, we discuss our experiences as participants in group campaigns that were run by someone else. We also have a call-in from a manager of community Kickstarter campaigns, Brian John Mitchell. He’s a cartoonist and self-publisher who’s run multiple campaigns featuring the work of many different artists.
Along with detailing our personal experiences, we also share our tips for navigating the ups and downs of crowdfunding for a group project, including our opinions on promotion and social media outreach.
