Maybe Gary's insightful views wil help to change the very negative views that most people in the alternative comics world seem to harbor against kickstarter and like-minded crowdfunding campaigns. I've never really understood why so many people (ALL from the art comics side, let's face it) have had such a big issue with crowdfunding in general.
I believe Gary struck gold however, in this observation:
" There is, to criticism of crowdfunding generally, the whiff that there's something faintly unmanly about it, that if you can't hack it in the "free market," you're not cutting it, or that cartoonists in their twenties should work at Denny's for five years, saving their shekels so they can print their comic, or that crowdfunding is an example of charity, and we all know what Mr. A would think of that! I don't think most of the critics mean it this way, but there's a capitalistic macho to this position that I don't buy."
I'm not buying it either. Good luck to Fantagraphics Books on their campaign.
And fuck Dan Nadel.
