50 Comics Positives For 2014: Patreon Began To Yield Comics-Related Success Stories


What I don't know about comics-related funding mechanisms could literally fill a book -- a book I'd read, I swear to God -- but I think it's worth nothing that Patreon has settled into a being useful tool not just for a hardcore group of outliers and early adopters and people working multiple comics-related niches but to regular, working cartoonists. I'm particularly interested in how it's had an impact on cartoonists like Jason Shiga and Meredith Gran, because I think in those cases we're getting comics we wouldn't get otherwise without this way of funding them and there seems to be some hard structural impediments in traditional set-ups when it comes to their maximizing reward to a certain stratum of creators.
