We are now officially past the halfway mark, raising (as of this posting) $323,761 and over FOUR THOUSAND book orders! We still have two weeks to go, though, and I’ve got some new modifications to the higher stretch goals and a new one too!
$700k - Dresden Codak will update every week for 1 year
- Moved this one from $800k. Less money than what I first estimated, but I think it’s still doable. At this goal I can hire a full-time assistant to help with all the non-comic making elements of Dresden Codak. Notice that it’s changed to weekly instead of biweekly. How is this possible? Well the plan is to restructure the site to have parallel archives, so every other week would feature a big update (ie: a page of Dark Science) while the weeks in between will feature a smaller unrelated comic (or a satirical essay, etc) in its own archive on the site.
$800k - I will produce a 10 episode Indistinguishable From Magic video series, focusing on comics and other forms of visual storytelling.
- This would be a video series inspired and partly based on my Indistinguishable From Magic articles, but expanded to include film, animation, and other forms of visual storytelling!
I’m laying it all out, guys! LET’S DO THIS.
