We (as in, Me and Ammar, the Wart artist) are running a KICKSTARTER!
For those that don’t know – Kickstarter is a place where people can outline their ideas, projects, etc, and then if other people (friends or strangers) think it sounds good, they can throw in some cash towards making the idea/project/etc a reality. CLICK HERE for a better description in Kickstarter’s own words.
Anyway, yeah – we’re running one. And we’re running it like a pre-order for a bunch of cool stuff. So if you kick us some cash, we’ll send you actual things in return. Digital books, paper books, t-shirts, posters, sketches, nude Polaroids etc. We don’t want people to give us cash for no reason – that’d be madness – so we’re committed to exchanging cash for goods.
You can find it here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1929822973/wart-a-cosmic-horror-comic
Every penny we raise goes right back into the comic in one way or another. First and foremost we’re going to use the money to fulfil all the rewards we’ve promised, and then if there’s any left after that we’ll get more books printed, attend more cons, all that stuff.
We’re asking for £1500 because that’ll enable us to pay for production of all the rewards and leave us with a nice amount of books left over at the end. Every person running a Kickstarter dreams of surpassing the goal, even by a few hundred quid, but if we don’t then that’s fine, we’ve planned accordingly. (But also, if any rich benefactor wants to inject a few thousand pounds into our cause, we won’t say no.)
So, to end this post – please consider grabbing something from the Kickstarter. Every pledge helps!
Chris and Ammar
