Special Edition Podcast

Make Comics #32 – Kickstarter

Show Notes

Kickstarter. The word itself has become a holy grail of indie comic book production. The crowd will decide, ahead of time, if they’re interested in the comics you’re making. But it’s not as easy as all that. A successful campaign is planned and thoughtful. To talk about Kickstarter, we’ve brought in a special guest this week, as Tyler James of ComixTribe joins Josh Flanagan to talk about his campaign for Oxymoron, and the things that he thinks helped make it a success. If you’re interested in alternate methods to get your comics made, you need to listen to this show, and you need to do your research.

Running Time: 00:24:33

We’ll be back next week with Andy Schmidt and more Make Comics advice.

Take note! The Make Comics Podcast has moved to its own feed, which you can subscribe to in iTunes, or here manually.
