Comic Book Creators Raise Funds Through PayPal Donations

The comic book creators behind the upcoming Posthuman film decided not to use crowdfunding sites for their work, raising money directly through a website and PayPal instead.

What do you think? Will more creators try to raise money by themselves? Social Times has all the details:

instead of turning fans via Kickstarter or Indiegogo the creators of “Posthuman” are raising money on their own website. The setup is similar to an Indiegogo or Kickstarter campaign—there are various perks depending on the amount of money you donate ($10 or more gets you a digital download of the prequel comic book and your name in the credits, $25 gets you an early link to each installment before it’s released and a download of the soundtrack, $50 gets you a t-shirt and “Superpower Button Pack”, and $75 gets you all of the above plus a signed physical copy of the comic book). Roberts explains, “People can donate whenever…directly through PayPal.  We set that up so when people donate they can have the assurance that 100 percent of their donation is going to the project, instead of a percentage going to a third party crowd funding site.”
