There's a lot of focus on crowdfunding and while that's all well and good, I'd like to know more about advice for people like myself who DON'T want to do a crowdfunding campaign for their project.
This is my second comic technically, though it's also a second attempt at a story. Because anxiety and self-sabotage got in the way last time, I fear that a crowdfunding campaign will only put a lot of stress and pressure onto me. Add the inevitable drama you see at times from internet spats over who's got internet cooties (to paraphrase Ya Boi Zack) and you can imagine.
There's also that I don't want to do a 100+ page volume of a comic, but make one issue of a limited run at a time. I don't know yet how long each one is going to take, though I also figure that now would be a good time to think ahead about what alternatives would be there for me to running a crowdfunding campaign. While I'm considering the probability of hiring an inker, a colourist and a letterer respectively to try and cut down on time, I still don't see why this would be THE path for me.
Who else is in this boat? In all the talk about "Comicsgate" or even "Anti-Comicsgate", it sometimes looks as if there aren't many possibilities available to indie creators outside of these groups. (I'd like to make a comic for Alterna one day, however I don't think that this particular story would be it.)
