“Take A Chance” on eBay  

The five issue run of “Take A Chance” is being auctioned off on eBay by somebody or other, in case someone would like to have a copy.

Yesterday, unrelated to this auction since I didn’t know about it, and therefore randomly, because I was feeling gloomy about the prospect of ever, ever, ever finishing the series (I’m pretty gloomy about ever getting a graphic novel out, for that matter. Or getting paid by the Dabels. Anyway.) I had the vague thought of continuing it online as a crowdfunded novel. In my copious free time, obviously, but I wonder if it’d sell. *eyes kickstarter, vaguely*

I'm sorry to hear that another author I read got "hit" by the Dabels shenanigans. I was annoyed when they pulled crap with the "Anita Blake" comic and then even more pissed off when they did the same thing to the "Dresden Files" comic. I would recommend authors everywhere boycott them.

It really does feel like something that could be shopped around, if you wanted to go that route. IDW, Boom, Archaia ... maybe even Top Cow, you know? Just thinking some out loud.

Yeah, it can be, I just ... haven't. I'm still waiting (sigh) to hear if Dynamite has any interest in going forward with it and that's making the wheels spin. And I've invested way too much of my own money in it, and need to, y'know, get some back somehow before I can think about going further on my own, anyway.

No, I totally get that.

Dynamite should get off their butts.

I think it could definitely work, especially as you have a number of readers already. The only question is how copious is your copious free time? (^_~)

I have the entire story arc written up (in synopsis, not scripts), so in terms of knowing what I'm doing, it wouldn't be all that hard, which means my copious free time could handle it, probably. But it's not really a very high priority. :)

i went to look, slighlty tempted. only to find the P&P was 3 and bit times the price of the comics!

*snag* Thanks for the heads up. I was kinda waiting for the compilation that I guess is in limbo? Really looking forward to seeing it.
Hugs to all.

A successful Kickstart detailed in depth
You may find this of interest, then: Craig Mod analyzes his successful use of Kickstarter to reprint Art Space Tokyo, with bonus bookpr0n for fans of craftsmanlike printing and bookbinding methods. (Full disclosure: I was one of the supporters, and have a copy of the resulting book, which is indeed very pleasing to the senses.)

Re: A successful Kickstart detailed in depth
Wow. That's a terrific essay. And wow. So much more organized than I am. *despairs* :)
