How even big names use crowdfunding

Dave Johnson wants your money, but only $1 at a time. Bill Willingham will take $1 to $10. Greg Pak gives you LOTS of options. And ALL these peeps give you something VERY cool in return.

Crowdfunding in the comics sphere ain't just for the "trying to break in" crowd. Lots of established creators are doing it as well. You can read about what they're doing, and more importantly the "where" and "how," over at Newsarama.
