No question the more times you launch on Kickstarter the easier it becomes for creators... and yet, there are still some problems that arise when you've been launching for a while. After launching his 23rd(!) Kickstarter campaign for ComixTribe's Happy Hill #1, Tyler shares a few problems that he and other veteran creators face, as well as suggestions for how best to handle them.
When the mainstream comics industry went "pencils down" during the pandemic of 2020, industry veteran Jeremy Haun knew he had to keep telling stories and making comics... and so he did! The result... HAUNTHOLOGY an oversized, 144+ page hardcover of original short horror comics.
