The Kickstarter Funded wiki last edited by DonFelipe on 04/20/14 10:40AM View full history

Overview

In 2009, the website Kickstarter.com launched, which would allow anyone to attempt to crowd fund any sort of project they wished. Users would set a goal for a the minimum amount of money needed to fund the project, then ask the community to help fund the project, offering incentive rewards based on how much an individual user donated. Projects would only be funded if they reached the minimum funding by the end of the time allotted to the project's Kickstarter page.

Recently, comic projects have become more and more popular on the platform. Below is a list of some of the most notable projects funded through Kickstarter as well as currently ongoing projects; in chronological order based on their funding period. The titles link to the wiki page here on Comic Vine if any; to see their Kickstarter page see "Link to Kickstarter" at the end of each bullet point.
