Kickstart This: Your Dollars for Comics (June 11, 2015)

The comics crowdfunding world is large and difficult to keep track of; each week, we highlight a few fundraising projects that are worth your time, attention, and maybe your dollars!


(1) For the Love of Spock: A Documentary Film

Adam Nimoy, son of Leonard Nimoy, wants to make a documentary film about his father, who was extraordinary, and not just because he played Spock.

Recommended pledge: $35 gets you some digital goodies plus an early stream of the movie. (There are no options for a copy of the movie, unfortunately).


(2) Dirty Diamonds #6: Beauty (An all-girl comics anthology)

Yes, you read that right: an all-girl comics anthology, focused around the theme of beauty. Take my dollars. Take them all.

Recommended pledge: $30 gets you a hard copy of this comic, digital copies of all six volumes, and a set of postcards.

(3) A Dark Forest by Kate Mia White

Two sisters. A dark forest. Gorgeous, intricate black and white artwork.


Recommended pledge: £5 gets you a copy of the comic.


(4) Oeclair: A Fantastical Standalone Watercolor Comic

You had me at watercolor comic; I’m a sucker for those.

Recommended pledge: $20 gets you the printed, signed book, a digital copy, and a making-of video.

(5) Lubbock-Con

I’m usually a person who uses Kickstarter for tangible things, a method of pre-paying for things I would buy anyways rather than being in the mindset of supporting a thing. But in this case, I’m glad that another inclusive con exists, and I’m happy to spread the word to get them going.

Recommended pledge: $10 gets you a supporter button.
