After a lot of success serializing his series Night Wolf on Kickstarter, Rob Multari thinks he’s finally ready to distribute through Diamond Distribution to get his books into comic book shops. The problem? How to deal with the upfront funding costs associated with direct market distribution? Tyler and a roundtable of comic creators brainstorm options in this mastermind style session.

Highlights of This Session Include:

  • The specific funding challenges that come with distributing your books into the direct market?
  • Should the comic shop version of your book be different than the book you sell on Kickstarter?
  • Options for a quickstarter style launch to raise a small amount of funding to bridge the gap between when the Diamond invoices will be paid.
  • Plus: ComixLaunch Mastermind alumni share the value of participating in the group in their own words!

More About Our Sponsor:

“Modern Mythology Presents: Medusa #1” is a fantasy adventure comic book that follows the famous treasure hunter Medusa as she seeks revenge on the gods who wronged her.

Inspired by classic Greek mythology, this comic also takes cues from Tomb Raider. Kill Bill, and God of War.

This looks like another banger from Dragon Grit writer Caleb Palmquist.

A long time ago, Medusa was assaulted by Poseidon, and turned into a monster against her will by Hera.

Now a famous treasure hunter, Medusa travels around the world learning ancient secrets and amassing wealth to fund her mission of revenge. She has taken down every god in the Greek pantheon except for one: Poseidon.

Through a combination of treasure hunting expertise, brute strength, and a burning desire for revenge, Medusa is determined to find the last god and take him out for good.

The Kickstarter for Modern Mythology Presents: Medusa #1 is LIVE now! Search for “Medusa” on Kickstarter to pledge to the campaign, or visit to learn more.
