Crowdfunding comic books has become the new big thing for comics, whether it's on Kickstarter or Indiegogo, and it's only getting bigger as it's essentially becoming the new comic book industry after the 2020 crash. Just look at how many creators big and small are getting involved, as are entire publishers. Just look at the massive success of the Keanu Reeves comic BRZRKR, which is just one example of many in 2020. Crowdfunding should be familiar to the people working on City of Titans, after all... this game was crowdfunded.
I think crowdfunding comics for the City of Titans series would work very well, considering that this game already has an audience and a reach, full of people who are sure to back it. It doesn't even take that much to make a successful campaign: 1000 people pledging $25 is $25,000. And that's on the low end of what comics can do now. Add in things like various perks for added content, variant covers, and stretch goals to keep things going, and I can easily see a comic for this soaring to great heights. And it accumulates: After a successful campaign, future campaigns are likely to get even more success due to positive word of mouth and added resources from the profits of the last campaign.
Plus, it bypasses a lot of the struggles of getting published by a company like Image or Dark Horse, and the profit margins are way higher. I asked before about Expanded Universe material, with the idea of getting published by an indie company, but really you don't even have to do that now.
I'm planning a crowdfunding comic myself (I might share more on that in another topic later), after having spent a long time trying to make comics with the hope of getting on a small press publisher, the means are there to not go through that anymore. I thought I would ask here about it. In fact, since I'm getting in the business of writing comics, I'll admit I'm interested in taking on a paid project for a City of Titans comic later on (wink wink).
In all seriousness, there's a lot of potential for comic stories to crowdfund. Maybe make a full-on Hijinx book, or a book following the Paragons, or an anthology, or an adaptation of Tales of the TCPD/the Underworld. Really, the possibilities are endless since this game has such a rich lore to it. Not to mention, it would make for a great way to market the game itself when it launches by getting a familiar audience.
