    Default Comics Outreach lead Camilla Zhang among layoffs at Kickstarter.

    From The Beat compliments of Heidi MacDonald....

    As we reported last week, Kickstarter was looking to layoff as much as 40-45% of its staff in the wake of COVID-19 uncertainties. Sadly, comics outreach lead Camilla Zhang was among those laid off, as she posted on Facebook and Twitter. Zhang previously worked at DC, Mad Cave and many other places and while she may (if we’re lucky) get rehired at Kickstarter, I’m sure she’ll end up somewhere else in comics if that doesn’t happen. A tireless presence promoting comics, Zhang just launch the Kickstarter comics anthology a few days ago, and hasn’t stopped tweeting about notable comics campaigns, because she’s just that positive! Unfortunately, Zhang’s departure led to a new and tedious phase of Twitter culture wars with the Indiegogo faction claiming victory over KS. This has been a constant little drumbeat of late, and, in truth, it would be useful to compare the two platforms. However, while Kickstarter is extremely transparent about their numbers – comics campaigns have raised $111.6 million on the platform – Indiegogo is extremely NON transparent.....

    In other crowd funding news Sean Gordon Murphy's project "The Plot Holes" already made it past 100K in its first day. He is crowdfunding the book through Indiegogo. Here is that link. https://www.newsarama.com/50218-insi...lot-holes.html

    Numbers like that have to make DC and Marvel paranoid about promoting their talent lol.

    "The Marvel EIC Chair has a certain curse that goes along with it: it tends to drive people insane, and ultimately, out of the business altogether. It is the notorious last stop for many staffers, as once you've sat in The Big Chair, your pariah status is usually locked in." Christopher Priest
