    15,000 dollars?! Jesus. Can I ask, what really is the sum you need to do this, and how much of that you have thus far saved by yourself?
    It sometimes just feels that people put all the stuff on the Kickstarter's back, so that they themselves don't have to calculate their own contribution towards their projects (like say, working for half a year saving every penny so that they can reach their later monetary goal).

    Or at least I'd like to know exactly where that ridiculous sum of money goes? Because unless you're planning on stopping working for the time you're doing this I don't get why you need so much money, I don't know why you have to pay this "Sylvia" person, I don't get why you need hard-cover comics (why not first collect money for cheaper soft covers and after that, if the comic is successful collect money for a re-print) and what is this talk about ties, board games and exclusive t-shirts? Please don't tell me you've dreaming of selling tie-in products of a comic that's not even made couple pages further?

    One rule of kickstarter people tend to forget. Be prepared to finish your work even if you don't receive the funding.

    I've actually wondered that a bit. Like with this, if he never gets the full funding that he'd need to get everything he promised, what happens to all those backers that he promised prizes and stuff (like the one backer who's supposed to get a hardcover and a board game)?
    I don't know if Kickstarter has some legalities written about this, but yeah promising stuff that I can't get without the funding and then not getting the funding is not a situation I'd want to be.

    Ummm.... it's in the FAQs

    —Funding Successful: If a project has met or surpassed its funding goal, all backers' credit cards are instantly charged and funds go directly to the project creator. Project creators are then responsible for completing the project and delivering rewards as promised.

    Funding Unsuccessful: If a project has NOT met its funding goal, all pledges are canceled. That's it.
    This project seems a bit pricey perhaps, but not way out of line.
    Similar type of project, handled better, but still: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...ook-of-wizards

    Ah, durp.

    And I don't know, maybe I'm biased because most of the comic artists in here have to do this same thing (as in self-publish their comics) without splurging 12 000 euros on it, but for me the actual "way out of line" comes from all the additional crap that's definitely not needed in this (to me it's the same as the kids who start fan clubs for their comics that haven't even started and never will, and it doesn't make sense to me to start designing games and ties to a comic not yet done [I mean if the comic proves succesfull, nothing should stop the OP of starting the game project as a separate Kickstarter project] and make the comic as pricey as possible with the hardcover and colour, which the Wizards book really does need to work properly need but the comic less so, using grayscale shouldn't destroy the comic) and the fact that unlike the Wizards project, the OP graciously ignored any questions where the money actually goes.
    So with me it's not the price but the fact that the price feels needlessly blown up.

    Makes sense, I would agree with that.
