KickStarting: Comics

Money_CashIt’s a new week and KickStarting: Comics is back with a look at how much was raised/pledged for comic projects on Kickstarter for the past week!

I realize some projects are not in US dollars, but they all will count the same regardless of origin, for now. $1 US will be the same as $1 CAD, $1 AUD, etc. There is one exception, there is one project which was in the Danish Krone. That has been converted and rounded to the nearest dollar.

Over the past week 13 projects were successfully funded.
