You`ve probably heard or read about Kickstarter by now. Maybe you haven`t. Maybe you`re already a member and donate money.

Anyway, it`s a virtual place, where you can get projects to succeed. Any kind of projects. Music, movies, plays, jewelry, comics...

All kindsa comics. Ever wanted to see a great looking, black and white, satiric superhero parody that stars...?

Draw a comic book, thats paper stock is the same you get from an average Marvel-comic? Does a kid you know and/or have want to make one?

Do you like Winsor Mccanes comics (Don`t know who he is? Check this KS-page. Or Mccays page on CV.)?

Would you like to see "A film documenting a standup comedian who walks across North America in search of material, finding a fresh perspective on her country."

Yeah, it`s not a comic, but you don`t spend all your time reading them, so...

Did you like Stormquest?

Would you like to read Scam in a HC-edition?

Or perhaps you would want to read a silly, good looking comic about two superhero families arguing over whether to wear underwear inside or outside their costume! I do! And I`m not even a big fan of silly comics! I`m a moderate one, though. Needless to say, that it`s great for kids and adults (hope I didn`t lose the crowd with that).

And then there`s anthologies, lil ninjas, cute animal comics fighting against other cute animals, more superhero stuff, historical comics, Steve Rude scetchbook for 2014...

You really can make a difference in this site. But, in many cases, there`s not enough to do so (like in everything).

But...

Maybe you can`t because you don`t have a credit card. In that case, you can get a prepaid credit card.

Maybe you don`t have alot of money. Well, even a few dollars (or other currency) can help. If there`s alot of people donating those dollars.

Perhaps you ain`t 18. Well...ask a friend and/or family member of yours, with a want to help others, to donate instead of you.

If it doesn`t work...wait till you`re 18, I guess. KS is probably still going by that time.

Perhaps you`re poor...well, that sucks, and you need the money as bad or more, as the ones asking for it.

Maybe you don´t care.

...

You could...start caring.

Maybe you don`t care because you can`t help.

Is it even possible? Possibly. Maybe you feel guilty because you can`t help.

I know the feeling. Everybody does. Probably.

But, there`s always a way. I know there is.

But...

Um...

Anyway, Kickstarter exists. Now go over there, and make some comic as popular as Batman, Superman, Captain America, X-men or Stilt-man!

I have mixed feelings on Kickstarter. While on one hand it's great that projects that would otherwise have no chance to be seen get a better opportunity... on the other hand I also see large amounts donated and I can't help but think what a difference that could make among those that could really use it. Not trying to tell anyone how to spend their money I just hope that if you are donating 1k or more to getting a movie or book done that you also donate to those in need.

@irishx:

I do. But not enough.

I don`t feel guilty about it anymore, but I do have a want to help people.
