Risks and challenges

I am going into this with the experience of having brought dozens of collections into print, earning two Eisner Award nominations. I have also run six successful Kickstarter campaigns. Beyond that, I am lucky enough to know several really talented people, who can help out with any bumps in the road that we might encounter along the way.
