‘Namesake’ Webcomic Authors Raise $37K on Kickstarter For a Fairy Tale Anthology

Megan Lavey-Heaton and Isabelle Melançon, the co-authors behind the webcomic “Namesake,” has obtained more than $37,000 through a Kickstarter campaign for her project, Valor. Originally, she set her fundraising goal at $20,000.

The finished book is a fairy tale comic collection. Altogether, this anthology will feature 17 stories. The money will be used to cover the cost of printing. We’ve embedded a video about the project above. Here’s more from the Kickstarter page:

“The purpose of this book is to pay homage to the strength, resourcefulness, and cunning of female heroines in fairy tales. Some of these are recreations of time-honored tales. Others are brand new stories, designed to be passed to future generations.”

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
