POLIS: The Trial of Socrates - is live on KICKSTARTER

in #comics2 years ago (edited)


Well, folks, after a slight delay, POLIS: The Trial of Socrates has officially launched on Kickstarter! Anyone interested in checking out the campaign can find it HERE.

I would love to be able to use Steemit, or any other viable blockchain, to crowdfund this idea. But I don't think there's a workable system in place yet, so Kickstarter is still a kick-ass solution for bringing cool ideas to life without having to bypass moneyed gatekeepers. I appreciate any/all support.


While it would be difficult at this point to offer any of the physical rewards based on Steemit upvotes, I would love to offer the digital book to anyone who supports the project here. (I'll be making update posts as we move forward.) To make things easy to track, please make sure to comment below with an upvote - and I'll get your email down the road to send you the pdf. (This process will develop, I think, over the new few weeks as I work out the kinks.)

In the meantime, here's a sketch of page 1 of POLIS: The Trial of Socrates!

Version 1


Version 2


I had Daniel change things up a bit between the two because I wanted the streets to appear more empty for early morning, and the narration needed some room to breathe.

Thanks for your support and any feedback! Your upvote is definitely appreciated. I hope you'll stick around and watch it all come together.

Currently it couldn’t replace KickStarter for scope, scale, & toolset... but have you checked out https://fundition.io/ ?

You could set up a tandem campaign there for a bit of extra Steem related PR and to test it out. I’ve been toying with some ideas to test out myself.

Regardless, congrats and thanks for all the sharing you’ve done here following the development of this project!

I have not! Just took a look - thanks for pointing it out. I'll look into it in more detail tomorrow - about to go to bed. Looks like it may have some potential though.

It has potential! Just a crowdfunding oriented Steem front end. It could help with tracking, but it’s so early I think you’d be helping promote it as much as it would help you. Still not a bad thing to do though!

good post

Wishing you luck with the KS campaign! Looks really cool! I ha e a comic i plan on kickstarting as well.

I'll share this on my other social network Diaspora also.

Awesome - thanks!
