The creator for Tomorrow Jones - a comic about a superheroine who defies tradition of spandex suits - passed along his Kickstarter
info. It looks intriguing.
I like his idea for Tomorrow very much. :waytogo:
Hmmm. I'm finding the problem with Kickstarter is many projects (like this one) sound really cool, but I have no idea if the end product will be really cool. Which makes me wonder if I'm just not the Kickstarter type, since the kind of project I'm likely to contribute to would have people I'm already comfortable with/trust behind it, rather than just an idea I think is interesting (had the same problem with the Wollstonecraft project).
In other related thoughts, the concept sounds somewhat similar to Brian Bendis (Ultimate Spider-Man, pretty much 90% of all Avengers titles for the past seven years) and Mike Oeming's Takio project (http://www.amazon.com/Takio-Brian-Michael-Bendis/dp/0785153268) which I just found out is getting an ongoing series this May (http://www.usatoday.com/life/comics/story/2012-03-16/Takio-comic-book-series/53569836/1).
Hmm. Seem to have gone off topic. Apologies.
The Tomorrow Jones series looks really cool. Except that we have no idea if the execution will match. So that's basically what I have to say. Sorry!
Well that's the risk for some Kickstarters. I supported the Wonder Women doc because I had seen a pretty good hunk of the doc - in rough form. Grayhaven Comics is giving people a chance to learn the business and I wonder how many other great novelists or artists would be out there if someone had taken a risk on them.
I hope though that people's faith doesn't get abused by the tool of crowdsourcing funds or that it becomes less about fighting for a start.
