50 Comics Positives For 2014: Last Gasp Had Its Next Publishing Season Crowd-Funded, With $ To Spare


The great thing about the crowd-funder by venerable publisher and at-times pivotal distributor of comics and related arts material Last Gasp was that its inducements were also advertisements for the value of Ron Turner's long-running enterprise. This was a really interesting crowd-funder to watch, in that it rallied late -- my suspicion is that we're seeing a bit more of those late-driving successes in crowd-funding than we used to, where you could tell a few weeks out if something was going to get over or not. It's a better publishing world when Last Gasp is around to participate, and I hope that they'll use the money to make great comics and stabilize themselves for the future.
