How about follow through on Kickstarter? Was scammed out of about 100 bucks by thread creators. No recourse unless I see them in person. Apparently they ripped off others as well and still people through money after them. Was also told one of them is a pathological liar and now I know. Nothing but nice to them.

Two other Kickstarter campaign made promises and assurances and have yet to follow through on top of this. Unless you are a very well known creator and set for print I avoid comic Kickstarter like the plague.

Hi guys. Gonna resurrect this old thread because I hope some DW'ers can help answer a nagging question of mine about paying the production team.

I'm in the early stages of planning my first comic book Kickstarter. For those who did this before, did you pay your art team out-of-pocket and then reimburse yourself after you obtained funding? Or did everyone produce the work for free, at first, after being presented with a budget breakdown, and then received payment post-funding?

Thanks.

From my experience through a couple of KS projects, I got paid for the work on the preview only pages. they are around 6-7 pages of fully inked work. I got paid after I invoice. Then when the campaign got funded, I continued on the rest of the pages and I got paid upon subsequent invoices until the book is done.

A new project I'm working on at the moment requires around 7 pages preview as well but the client asked me to continue on even if the campaign got funded or not.

I hope this helps, bro.

One additional question: If one of your funded projects received something like $20k over the goal, were you offered some kind of bonus clause?

I was offered bonus when I signed up due to the rate they offered me and which I told them it was less than what I get paid per fully inked page. They said they will give me bonuses and some incentives. The campaign was successfully funded. I was also offered to do covers, one main and one alternative and the offered rate was very generous, doubling the rate. I believe that even if you offer your artist with less rate from the start, it's a courtesy to offer bonuses to make up for the difference in the rate and also offer some rate incentives for cover/s and sketches. When you think about it, your artist not only have to produce quality work but also spending much more time to make the book top notch. It's good to have a good relationship with your artist and colorist so that they are willing to work with you on your next project. Otherwise, they'll look for a better deal next time around.
