Although ComixLaunch has almost exclusively focused on the Kickstarter platform, it is not the only game in town. Indiegogo is a crowdfunding platform that hundreds of comic creators have chosen to fund their projects. In this guest lesson episode, creator Jen Finelli makes the case for Indiegogo, and why she chose it over Kickstarter for her current launch.

Highlights of this Session Include:

Why a creator might choose Indiegogo over Kickstarter?
Crunching the numbers on success rates between the two platforms.
Bells and whistles Indiegogo has that Kickstarter does not.
Plus: My take on the case for Indiegogo vs. Kickstarter

Today’s Session is Sponsored by ToInfinity Studios Mini-Issue:

Training Wheels, a 11×15 high quality print, on Kickstarter now. More info at,

Thanks – Curtis

ToInfinity Studios mini-issue: Training Wheels, a 11×15 print, is a project live on Kickstarter. What’s cool about Training Wheels is that it’s a single page story with meaning and heart, evoking the kind of stories Curtis Clow and the ToInfinity Team intend to create.

A part of Kickstarter’s January MAKE/100 initiative, by backing Training Wheels, you’re supporting a passionate creative team and helping them get one step closer to finishing their first book. This one page story is being produced as a high quality print, on 120lb paper with a gloss finish. And if they hit their stretch goal, every backer will get an additional poster for free in their order. Check out Training Wheels on Kickststarter tday, and go to to see what else Curtis and the ToInfinity Studios team is working on.


It’s time for today’s ComixLauncher.
A ComixLauncher is a short, actionable activity you can do immediately after listening to the show. They’re all activities I’ve done myself, and will get you one step closer to a successful ComixLaunch. They’ll transform this Podcast from a passive, lean back activity centered around Tyler James, into an active, lean-forward activity centered around YOU and your projects.
