I would guess we are at the end now. We have just seen page 50. These included:
A2Z: Dino Zombies (11 pages)
Celine the Exquisite Corpse (8 pages)
Sarah Finn (9 pages)
Tejedora (22 pages)
Anyone willing to vote for which story we hope he finishes next?
I would be delighted to see more of any of them, but will through in my vote for Tejedora.
Tejedora is the best of the 4. The story is starting to get interesting.
Tejedora is by far the best story and I would love to see it continued.
Actually I thought at the start it said Tejedora was 24 pages long.
I was certainly enjoying Tejedora and the whole female power player idea behind it but I did love the idea behind Sarah Finn as well. I think story sex/nudity as opposed to fan-service stuff can work much better and is more accepted even by the haters especially if there is purpose and reason behind it rather than just gratuitous stuff.
Generally though, its hard to justify the necessity of showing a whole sex scene for story purpose. Unless something else interesting is happening during the sex or there is certain sex based/involved magic, sex on its own can generally just be “time-skipped” to the after sex cuddling/dressing with no great story/plot loss.
Kickstarter works best if you already have the fan following behind you. So use the Exiern site if you can and see about picking an artist who already has a strong fan following and site so they bring in customers as well. Invest in an initial 30-60 pages if you can and post them full frontal on their own little webcomic site (or a subsection of Exiern) over a period of weeks doing everything you can to direct traffic to the site with as little spending as possible. Then hit the kickstarter for production and publication of the entire story, spend a bit more on advertising and watch it roll out.
I’m presuming the Sarah Finn story is a stand-alone with an end and not one with continuity. There are a few contained stories that have done well. Brubaker’s reMind and Crosby’s Dreamless to name a couple. Personally I think they can work better when you as a writer want to move on from ideas and particularly for good artists who can get tired of the same characters and art style over a long period of time. Make it, finish it, shelve it and move onto the next.
