Back in 2013, I launched a Kickstarter to make my comic book script a reality. The comic was called Robin Hood: Outlaw of the 21st Century, a modern-day update of the classic legend that sees Rob and his merry men scour the town of Sherwood for medicine, which they then steal to give to those in need, the 21st century equivalent of robbing from the rich to give to the poor. Thanks to the generosity of friends, family, colleagues and even strangers here on Kickstarter, the comic was drawn, printed and found its way into the hands of over 100 backers. After three more issues and the trade paperback collection, I have returned to Kickstarter for Robin Hood: Outlaw of the 21st Century #0, to tell the story of how Rob met his trusty sidekick Will Scarlet, and brought him into the fold. Fortunately, the same creative team is involved that brought you the previous issues. Unfortunately, creating your own comic is a costly endeavor, and that's where you come in.

Risks and challenges

The challenge is that if the project does not get funded, then the book is never finished. Also, what I didn't know the first time I ran a Kickstarter, but know only too well now, it costs money to promote your book to get people to buy it once it is finished, so some of the funds made here will be put towards promotion.
