Rich Burlew has used Kickstarter for his OOTS reprint drive and has now raised over $300K. I'm posting this here for two reasons.

OOTS is massive, approaching three times the size of the previous biggest comics project and over six times the size of the next biggest after that. There are a lot of projects which aimed to raise less money and succeeded in doing so. As and when BK and DM want to raise money to print the next YAFGC anthology, then they might consider Kickstarter as a means to do so.

Meanwhile readers here may want to know that all the OOTS book (apart from last year's special) will soon all be available in print. (That is now restricted to fundraising drives including the Kickstarter.) There are also plenty of interesting comics projects mentioned at http://www.kickstarter.com/discover/cat ... ef=sidebar and the subcategories that may interest people.

Unfortunately for Canadian entrepreneurs (like us!), Kickstarter is only available for use with an account on an American bank. At least it was the last time I looked into it! The idea is great, but the bank/tax/working out of country issues make it impossible for us to use.

We do highly endorse supporting other comics and artists through Kickstarter, however! It's a great program.

That's a pity. Kickstarter are rapidly expanding. (See and how they compare with 2010. You could perhaps contact them and suggest that expanding to other NAFTA countries is the next thing to look at. At the worst, all they can do is say no. And if they get enquiries, it could push it up their agenda.

I suppose the main issue might be the overhead for currency conversion.

I think the main issue is more likely to be the tax treaties for income tax/cross-border earnings and such. I have to fill out extra forms for the IRS because of our ad banner suppliers being American/paying us as out-of-country sellers, so I assume similar things would apply.

RocketHub and Indiegogo seem to fund international projects. There may be others.
