Since the pandemic, Kickstarter has increasingly become a platform to launch new comic books with major studios such as Boom Studios joining independent creators as well as celebrity writers such as Keanu Reeves to launch their work on the platform.
Kickstarter has cultivated a reputation for being a community-focused environment, where creators often help promote each other’s campaigns and drive their readers to comic books they enjoy. In addition to the books themselves, Kickstarter creators reward their fans with addition items, such as exclusive prints, signed copies, and other book-related merchandise.
Wizard World is hoping to recreate that sensibility in real-time. Creators will discuss the heroes at the center of the books while participating in a virtual “promotion swap”, a common practice on the platform.
Viewers will have the opportunity to win free giveaways and earn exclusive artwork created for this event.
