We came to Kickstarter because we think there are many, many fans of mystery, thrillers and true crime who will want to support our effort. That includes anyone who has stayed up reading until 3 AM to find out who did it; binge watchers who set aside an entire weekend to immerse themselves in reliving the original Prime Suspect; those who want to know what graphic novelist Frank Miller is doing next; and for those who want a sneak peek at the mystery genre’s latest video game. The appeal is compelling to the point of obsession. It’s the most popular genre of fiction and scripted television in the U.S. and incredibly popular across the globe. And its fans deserve a 21st century publication with an international reach, something that a tablet publication can facilitate with ease. A successful Kickstarter campaign means that any fan with an iPad -- and eventually an Android, Kindle Fire and smartphone -- will be able to access Noir Magazine.
