Have a question?
Can you get some publicity through Steve Jackson? He seemed to have an interest in the comic in the past...
LG is the only other lego based webcomic I read. Maybe there are other artists that might be willing to mention this, too.
@ IRDC: Thanks for that. I should have thought of contacting Dusan myself - I'm glad you did!
After a poke Legostar Galactica mentions the return of Irregular Webcomic in today's strip's comments. I hope this helps a bit.
@ Jamie Bergman: Thank you!
@ IRDC: Thanks for helping spread the word. I am contacting as many friends as possible to help, and have started running an ad campaign on Project Wonderful to let more people know about the Kickstarter. It's a bit of a haul to the goal, but I haven't given up!
You have given me many years of happiness with your web comics. :)
Is anybody part of some kind of webcomic enthusiast Facebook group or something like that? I tried promoting this project on Facebook, Twitter, 9gag and two other webcomics and I'm running out of ideas :-(
Is anybody friends with someone famous?
@ Oliver Korpilla: Haha, thanks! I'm glad I got you addicted to another comic. :-)
I only followed Darth & Droids until you made your announcement regarding the KS. I pledged because I am hobbit-fawning over this. Good job! :)
Even if it becomes repetitive but maybe you could ask people once a week to spread the word (which would only be two more times anyway).
@ Matthew Ryan: I'd kind of been assuming that would be part of the process, but I'll double check with them. They're pros - I'm sure they have this sort of stuff figured out!
There was a surge in backers yesterday. Seems like our combined "spreading the word" made a difference :-)
David, does/will Make That Thing send you any proofs (or similar), so you can make sure that the comic colors look ok when printed? (I know that's a thing I've seen other webcomics-into-books have to look into.)
@ IRDC: Hi, thanks for asking! Yeah, we started well, but momentum is slowing. The thing to do is publicise and spread the word as far and wide as possible. I'm going to try a few more things myself, but you and other backers can help by mentioning the book to family, friends, and on blogs, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, etc.
Is there anything we can do to make this more popular? I would like to see the other themes become books, too...
Damn... Spellslingers all gone already :-(
In for a Melba!
