Heya, folks!
I’ve Kickstarted four comic projects, and fulfilled three. (The fourth only just ended last Monday!) As a result, I get asked for advice on how to do it right pretty often. So, I made this.
This 32-page, five-chapter PDF explains how to plan, prepare, run, and fulfill a Kickstarter comic project. (Specifically a comic project! They’re the only kind I’ve done.) It’s everything I’ve learned about Kickstarter since joining the site in 2009.
It’s $5.00, and you can get it here. 
Thanks for your patience, folks! I know this took me a while to finish. But trust me, it’s worth it.

  4. You keep on doing projects and at the beginning it’s uphill and people are ignoring them or are indifferent and you don’t get reviewed. Hopefully you reach a tipping point and all of that is a memory. That point when you’re getting zero recognition…it’s hard to go forward. It wasn’t always the case that I just did comics, but since 2007 I feel good about how consistent I’ve been. Especially with the teaching. It’s let me establish a place in the comics community and in New York and in the world in general which I never dreamed would be possible.” —Josh Bayer
