Popular webcomics getting immense Kickstarters is a real dog bites man story, but here it is: Aaron Diaz has a print project for his fantasy webcomics Dresden Codak up and after a day or so it has $189,773 with 27 days to go. The initial goal was a mere $30,000. It’s already the 8th biggest comics Kickstarter of all times, and who knows how big it will get.
The Tomorrow Girl: Dresden Codak Volume 1 will reprint the first five years of Dresden Codak, along with new content. Diaz has a huge following so I’m not sure what the news is except that this will be a nice looking book.
All 10 $1000 rewards are already gone after a day. What do you get for that? A portrait of your favorite dinosaur by Diaz, a portrait of you as a Dungeons and Discourse character (the game in the Codak world) and:
GOD-EMPEROR OF CODAK: Everything in the Immortal Dragonslayer tier, plus I will create for you a personal Dungeons & Discourse character, including a full-color digitally painted portrait of you as the character and a character stat sheet (with prints of both)!
Two $5000 rewards that include a character based you are still available, kids.
