This week’s Utah Crowd-Funding project lets backers see themselves in print.
"Not a Villain" has published online twice a week for the last three years. Richins is aiming to print a second volume of the comic in book form, in 144 color pages that employ three different drawing styles — for the real world and the two virtual-reality worlds in the story.
Richins, an artist and writer in St. George, is seeking $8,000 for publication. The deadline on her Kickstarter campaign is Nov. 9, and so far she’s got $5,713 in pledges, or about 71 percent.
Perks for backers range from a digital wallpaper (for a $1 pledge) to a speaking role in Book 3 (for $700).
If you have a crowd-funding project you’d like mentioned on The Cricket blog, email it to: email@example.com. Be sure to put "crowd funding" in the subject line.
