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.

- Why only comparing yourself to your past can still be problematic?
- Day one messaging strategies when you have lots of past campaigns to potentially update?

Need more stoner super heroes in your life?
Check out the latest release of Super-Bud, a comic book that asks the question, What would happen if marijuana gave you super powers?
This series by creators Mike Dean & Tim Radecki and artist Tim Lattie is full of laughs and loaded with super humans, monsters, evil scientists, drug dealers, and a talking dog.
In the book, a mysterious strain of medical marijuana, stolen from a pharmaceutical lab, spreads throughout the small town of Emerald Oaks, giving those who smoke it super powers.
While most use their new super human abilities for personal gain, Danny, the comic’s protagonist and heartbroken unemployed comic nerd, decides to use his powers to be a superhero, like the heroes in the comics he loves.
Will Danny succeed in becoming the hero his town needs, or will it be destroyed by the super-bud?
The kickstarter for issues 1-3 is currently live through August 5th! You can follow along on Facebook and Instagram at @superbudcomic (instagram) or search keyword “super” hyphen “bud” on Kickstarter to check it out!
