On a related note (and you have inquired about fundraising):
Comic writer Scott Snyder (Batman, American Vampire, Justice League) and artist Tony Daniel (Batman, Suicide Squad, Superman) launched a Kickstarter campaign for a new comic series, Nocternal. The rewards for the campaign include a signed copy of the first issue and a master creative class with Snyder and Daniel.
The goal for the campaign is $40,000, which "will cover the book printing, rewards production, and fees from Kickstarter, Stripe, and BackerKit. Any funds we raise over that will help cover all production costs (Tony for art, Tomeu Morey for coloring, Deron for lettering, Will Dennis for editorial, Emma Price for design, and more) for the first story arc, up until issue #6."
Personally, I'm going to fund the project purely because I'm a fan of both Snyder and Daniel.
As of now, the campaign launched this morning and it already has over $20,000 pledged.
