While in the midst of his latest Kickstarter launch, writer Travis Gibb gets a little coaching from Tyler on the realities of serializing a crime comic on Kickstarter and what it will take to level up his launches.
Highlights of This Session Include:
- Where to focus your energy and effort mid-launch?
- Why “How fast you fund” isn’t a metric that matters all that much?
- Why knowing the “high watermark” in your genre can help frame expectations during a launch?

More About Our Sponsor:
‘Anubis: Dog of Death’ is a supernatural action comedy series.
As the name indicates, it stars Anubis, the Egyptian god of death. But while he was once a feared and respected deity, in today’s modern world he has lost most of his believers, and thus most of his power.
He now has to navigate his new life as a tiny disgruntled purse dog in L.A., along with gods from all kinds of different religions who have suffered similar faiths.
Imagine American Gods, but with a dog Garfield as the main lead.
The kickstarter for issue 1 is going LIVE on February 4th! You can also follow the creator at facebook.com/sindrelf for updates on the project.
