Mark Andrew Smith for Launches Kickstarter for The New Brighton Archeological Society Book Two


Comic creator Mark Andrew Smith has launched a Kickstarter project, to help pay for coloring and lettering costs of the second volume of his and Matthew Weldon’s all-ages graphic novel series, The New Brighton Archeological Society.

As a strong proponent of creator-owned projects, I’m a big fan of using Kickstarter as a tool to spread the world about such projects, and help them get off the ground. I have personally help fund several such projects now, and even if I don’t have the cash to back a project, I at least like to help bring attention to it with a post on the site.

Somehow, it seems this project got past me though, as it’s been running for a while, and has already attained its goal of raising $6000. However, Smith states in the project’s blurb that it will cost a total of $8000 to pay for coloring and production costs, and don’t forget that Kickstater takes a cut out of all donations received, so really they need to raiser more than $8000 to cover all costs. In any case, there is still 74 days left till funding closes, and there are tons of great incentives to be had for your donation.
