Kickstarter at San Diego Comic-Con 2016

Share this post

July has arrived, and with it comes that monolithic manifestation of all things comics and pop culture known as Comic-Con International. Its exhibit halls, awards, panels, and programming are positively packed with Kickstarter projects and creators. In celebration of said projects and creators, here are some of the Kickstarter-related goings-on at this year’s Comic-Con.


In addition to the many panels featuring outstanding Kickstarter projects — like She Changed Comics or Bill Plympton’s Revengeance or Exploding Kittens, just to name a few — our own comics guy, Jamie Tanner, will be on hand to moderate two panels that will give you the tools and inspiration to launch a Kickstarter project of your own:

Kickstarter Secrets Revealed

The Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards 

Named for the pioneering comics creator and graphic novelist Will Eisner and often considered the Oscars of the comics world, the Eisner Awards ceremony happens each year at Comic-Con International: San Diego. Many Kickstarter projects have been nominated over the years, and last year Locust Moon Press’s Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream took home two trophies (congrats, Locust Moon!).

This year, four amazing Kickstarter projects are nominated: Eat More Comics! The Best of The Nib, Fresh Romance, The Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal, and Sexcastle. Join us in cheering them on! 

Projects and Creators 

‘Tis a truly Herculean task to list every Kickstarter project to be found at this year’s Comic-Con, but you can browse a bunch of them on this 2016 Comic-Con Curated Page
