Kickstarting Your Comics

Friday, August 9, 5:00-5:45pm (Room 50)


The Sun Bros published their first two comic books–Chinatown and Apocalypse Man–through a tremendously successful Kickstarter campaign, bringing in over $25,000 from more than 600 backers in just 31 days. Now their books are on the shelves of bookstores and comic shops throughout Chicago, and they continue to receive online orders for their books every week. But how did they do it?

From building a fanbase through social media to shooting the Kickstarter video to actually securing the funds you need–crowdsourcing is a new, exciting, and multi-faceted way to get your comics in print. Join the Sun Bros for an interactive panel discussion on how to Kickstart your own comics and get your work out there!
