#1 Crowdfunded Comic Book project of all time

Postby NPCDave » Sat Oct 28, 2017 6:20 pm

...is ending in a few hours.

The people behind it ARE controversial, but they deliver quality stories. I have backed it and I am looking forward to seeing what comes of it.

One of the goals unlocked is an RPG which hasn't yet been started, and the alternate earth modern day setting is interesting. In this world the Nazis were stopped much earlier and the first atomic weapon was used against the Soviet Union rather than Japan.

#1 in the sense that it just set a record for the largest amount of money raised via crowdfunding for a new comic series/books.

I haven't exhaustively checked to see if that is true, but if you know of one that raised more I would be curious to know what that is.

As for controversy, you can get hints of it just reading about the project and looking through the comments at the link.

Did they lie or were they mistaken is the interesting question.

Wow. How does a project with art like that get over 200K in pledges? This reminds me of some of the indy stuff I saw back in the 90s. I'm speechless

If the Unapproachable East was so unapproachable, how did anyone get there?

Well, Chuck Dixon can be very good when he's at the top of his game and his name might have dragged in a few random stragglers. But one can easily assume that most of the crowdfunding comes as a political statement.
