Kickstarters: February 2016

      Comments Off on Kickstarters: February 2016

With so much Indie talent on the market, Kickstarter has been an invaluable tool in funding projects and getting them into print, whether you are a seasoned pro or a newcomer it can be a very successful way to find funds to make your creations a reality.

It is no easy sailing though with Kickstarter campaigners advising time and time again that it is a full time job promoting the campaign, and not all of them succeed!

However, the beauty of Kickstarter is that when you back a campaign, any money you put up will only be taken from you at the end of the campaign if it succeeds, meaning that usually you have a good chance of getting your rewards within a few months of completion (most campaigns will advise you of when to expect the project to be complete)

To help our local indie creators find their market, we are sharing all running campaigns on one post, including links and deadlines.

So if you want to support your local talent and independent comic creators, here are a few of the current Kickstarters running NOW in order of deadline due date.
