Kickstarted! Cerebus Archive Number One!


DAVE SIM:
(from the Kickstarter Q&A, 31 May 2014)
How much has fan support exceeded expectations on this Kickstarter? WILDLY!! I mean, it isn't on a scale with STAR TREK fans bringing the television show back from the dead and getting a movie made. But in its own way, it's all the more impressive. 272 people paying down The Lebonfon Printing Debt in one go (assuming that we don't run across any hidden expenses that eat up the whole $32,500 -- that's not something that we're going to know until we walk through it). I mean, it really was -- and IS -- a matter of "I've taken CEREBUS about as far as I can go. I'll KEEP going -- but now it's up to the fans to establish how FAST and how FAR we can move ahead." 

Pretty fast and pretty far, as it turns out. :)

Ooooooooooh I see my name. I knew this would be successful and beat expectations, but this was really impressive. I'm already looking forward to next time.

Travis Pelkie said...

Wow, what happened on the 24th that kicked things up that high? That's quite a leap for one day (a Saturday, the calendar tells me)

But I'm a backer! Yay! And I got my cool # locked in now and I got to send a shout out to Rafer Roberts of Plastic Farm! Go me!

Travis,

The boost that you see from May 23rd to the 24th is what resulted from two announcements:

1) A reminder on 2012 KS Cerebus Digital project site (and to all those 1,100 + backers) that the new project was running, AND

2) A reminder e-mail to all of the RANYTP people in the spirit of Dave's initialism's....(Reserved A Number, Yet To Pledge).

The pickup came largely from #1. I haven't finalised the RANYTP count yet, but will do so in the next day or so. Based on the count from this past Thursday and what came in, I think there will be a decent adjustment downward for the STAND-BY reservation holders.

The first night I logged on and went for my number and was delayed for a minute or two and I was a little miffed about it and ended up with #27. I considered for a moment asking to go stand-by for a lower number and then just decided I must have gotten that number for a reason. (Now Dave's metaphysics theories are starting to rub off on me, next I'll shave my head and start walking everywhere.)

Tony Dunlop said...

David, you're not serious about metaphysics (or "metaphysics" or "Metaphysics" or Metaphysics) until you fast a lot and pray five times a day...but think of the 401k you can build! (As a - now retired - colleague of mine once said, "If you were as cheap as me, you'd be retired by now.")

Travis Pelkie said...

AH! And I got one of those reminder emails since I'd reserved my number but hadn't pledged quite yet....
