    Default Cyberfrog Lives!

    What do you think of Ethan Van Sciver's Cyberfrog return and the incredibly successful Indie Go Go campaign he's having?

    Good news! I really enjoyed Cyberfrog back in the day. Any word on who's publishing the series?

    Backed it the day he launched it.
    Interesting to see that an alternative way of publishing gets more and more popular.
    Problem is the costs, I can‘t afford $25 plus shipping costs for every comic.

    Yeah, it might be better if creators put out regular individual issues for less or make sure that $25 book has plenty of content. I think they'll figure it out, though. There seems to be a big change happening in the industry.

    Which is strange to me, but it‘s about Cyberfrog, so I don‘t want to hijack the thread.

    I don't know. I think Van Sciver's making a statement very much worth talking about with the numbers being put up on his Indiegogo.

    On CBR certain topics are not welcome.
    Yes, there seems to be a shift and Uncle Ethan shows there is demand for certain comics. He is above the $320,000 now.

    It's no different than anyone else who has used stuff like Kickstarter. Like Kwanza Osajyefo's Black got funded in less than 17 hours and now has a movie deal.

    It's not going to change the industry but allows someone to get their project made. Most of Action Labs books were all creator funded projects. Molly Danger, Cash & Carry & Midnight Tiger. Image's Bingo Love was one too.

    It also allows the creator sell without the middle man.


    Yeah cost is an issue but being able to show folks something you helped get started is fun. Especially if it gets a movie deal.
