Gratz to Amy Falcone for her new comic project, Clique Refresh, hitting its Kickstarter funding goal on its first day. Here’s a celebratory drawing of the protagonist Ellie’s Ether Ruin avatar swimmin’ in Kickstarter loot.
I’m a huge fan of Kickstarter, of Strip Search, and of seeing comic projects getting love, so this streak of Strip Search alums’ (sometimes wildly) successful Kickstarter campaigns is music to my ears (see: Lexxy’s, Abby’s, Maki’s). I do feel a little bad, though, for [SPOILER] the show’s champion, Katie, who won a significantly smaller purse than these Kickstarters are pulling in (I know a huge slice of the Kickstarter pie goes to backer rewards and Kickstarter itself, but we’re talking $126k on Kickstarter vs $15k from Strip Search). Hopefully Katie will find a way for fans to throw money at her too. She deserves it.
