New Publisher Initiative Supports Kickstarter Community
BOOM! Studios shared today that it has backed nearly 100 comic book and graphic novel campaigns on Kickstarter from creators running their first campaign on the platform as a part of its support for the Kickstarter comics community.
The company has pledged (without a reward) $100 to each of these currently active, qualifying campaigns in the “comic books” and “graphic novels” categories, an industry-first move to support the Kickstarter creative community which will be further supported by additional publicity and social media promotion.
“We are so thankful and grateful to the Kickstarter community for everything they have given us,” said Ross Richie, CEO & Founder, BOOM! Studios. “This move today is only the start of how we’ll be supporting the community, both through financial pledges to this diverse array of new projects and by using our platform to bring more attention to the great comics being created by so much exciting talent.”
On September 1, 2020, BOOM! Studios launched its first Kickstarter campaign with BRZRKR, the blockbuster new series from the iconic Keanu Reeves alongside New York Times bestselling co-writer Matt Kindt (Folklords, Bang!), superstar artist Ron Garney (Wolverine, Captain America), colorist Bill Crabtree (BPRD), and letterer Clem Robins (Hellboy). These exclusive graphic novel set pre-order opportunities, which ran through October 1, are part of BOOM! Studios’ core mission to bring new readers to the comic book medium. You can find that completed campaign right here.
