One Day Later... The First Fundition Campaign Update for "I Thought It Would Be Zombies..."steemCreated with Sketch.

in comicbooks •  5 months ago


Approximately 24 hours ago... the world as we know it was changed irrevocably. No, the Earth wasn't struck by a catastrophic magical solar flare as in the world of "I Thought It Would Be Zombies..." but it was struck by the launch of a Fundition campaign to help produce the comic book that will tell that amazing tale!

Already I'm humbled by the supportive comments, shares, upvotes, and donations that have been received on this first day. There is a very long way to go... but I'll see it through until the end and hope you all will be there with me! A big thanks goes out to @la-fumettista, the first person to drop a Steem donation that takes her right into the "B-Class" solar flare rewards tier! She will absolutely be receiving one of the very first printed copies of issue #1... and I'll be sure to throw in some surprises as well. Your early vote of confidence means the world @la-fumettista, thank you! @preparedwombat also responded with a very generous donation, and the upvotes have begun to roll in from a number of supporters. Everyone will have ample time to work their way up the reward tier rankings as I anticipate this campaign to run for as long as 6-8 months as "I Thought It Would Be Zombies..." prepares to launch! No matter how small, cumulative votes over a long period of time can make a big difference, and are appreciated greatly.


That being said, I'd like to take these first few updates to help flesh out some of the underlying principles of the "I Thought It Would Be Zombies..." Fundition Campaign, and bring more clarity to supporters and fans as to what to expect moving forward.

As you may be aware, Fundition behaves very differently from traditional crowdfunding services that are more widely known. As funds are accrued, they are continuously being transferred and made available to the project founder; meaning it is not an "all or nothing" approach. I can assure you, I fully intend to see this project through, and have done similar in the past by self publishing previous comic books. No matter how long it takes, supporters can expect to have their rewards fulfilled. Due to the long estimated timeline for this campaign to reach completion, funds received will be held in the form of Steem Power until such time as they are in need of withdrawal to pay for expenses detailed in the campaign description, such as printing costs, convention bookings, artist pay, etc. Retaining accrued support as Steem Power will help to better fund the project, and allow for more rewarding interactions with fans and supporters who make great comments, discussions, and content of their own promoting "I Thought It Would Be Zombies..."

If you see your support amount changing over time, it is due to fluctuations in the price of Steem. This is natural, and while your estimated support can decrease, it is my belief that the opposite is a much more likely scenario over the long course of the campaign! Even a small amount of support early on could transform into a much larger total by the end of the funding campaign. So don't be disheartened if your voting power is "weak," there is no such thing... and every little show of support is a massive boost to this project.


On a second housekeeping note, I'd like to announce that support generated by service & platform votes will not be eligible for direct campaign rewards. What does that mean in English? Well, depending on the source of my Fundition Campaign update posts, a variety of votes can come from services and projects such as SteemPress, dTube, dLive, Busy, Fundition itself, or a whole host more! While this support can be integral to funding issue #1, there's really not a single face behind those votes to send some cool comics and swag to!

What will happen instead, is that any reward tiers accrued by services such as these will be donated to comic related charitable causes such as the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund and the Hero Initiative, in the names of the site or service, to help spread the word about "I Thought It Would Be Zombies..." and all the cool apps and platforms of the Steem blockchain!

Thank you again for an amazingly encouraging day one. I hope I didn't bog you down in too much mumbo jumbo in this update. I promise they'll get a lot more fun soon, as you all get to peek behind the curtain as a comic book gets made! I will gladly answer any questions and love to read good comments, so don't be shy!

Of course you have my support sir. I’ll be donating sometime in the next week!


Thanks so much, and take your time... it’s a marathon, not a sprint! As much as direct donations are sweet, I honestly think the support via vote is the killer application of something like Fundition. Imagine if all the money folks spent on KickStarter and Patreon got powered up into SP instead... backing projects in perpetuity and possibly cashing out more dollars than you put in in the first place... it’s awesome! So your votes are massively appreciated!
The enthusiasm for letting me be a guest artist at your shop is also uplifting, and I also foresee chances to work together on the convention end of things. I very much want to incorporate the types of initiatives you previously talked about into my con presence; Steem promotion, on-site account creation, etc.


The way you describe it, Fundition sounds like it could be better than those other crowdsourcing platforms. I'm very intrigued by this and will have to look into it more.


Yeah. Love the idea behind it. Kickstarter with a twist.


It’s a very exciting Steem based project to keep an eye on. Here’s a post I wrote about a year ago detailing a lot of my thoughts around the possibilities. A few months ago Fundition came around and started making them a reality! As with most Steem apps, it’s very early and there are many glitches to fix & features to add, but the potential is huge.


Absolutely brother. The shop is here for whatever you need. Do a “store exclusive” variant. Signing. Anything you need. Also I’ll be donating as well as pivoting anything related. Of course.

I like the idea of seeing the production of your project, I would like to be able to contribute with funding for your work, but the poor still remain poor. 😂

I wish you the best and I hope that your funding is a success because I have seen the process you have done for your Comics and everything you have worked to make it come true, so you deserve all the success in this stage.

Look! There you are already on my list of supporters at Fundition! It may feel small to you, but this is only the first day of a very long process. You absolutely are contributing to the funding! This amount will only grow with time and as the value of Steem rises. Do not take your votes for granted, because I sure don't.
More importantly, I appreciate your comments and emotional support just as much, thank you for being here!


hehehehe I think I look pretty in that miniature and with that heart. 😎

I know something is something, but I think you deserve much more.

Us comic folk gotta stick together! You've been so supportive of @drwatson and I with Ithaqa, it's the least I could do to thank you. Plus, I'm very eager to see where this comic goes and can't wait to have a copy in my hands!!

How nice that you have the support of so many people to launch that project and realize that dream of making everyone enjoy your comics! :)
