Magnet Comic - More Kickstarter $ucce$$

Postby Charles » Fri Dec 14, 2012 4:28 pm

Erik Heumiller is a comic artist living in Massachusetts USA.

He has a product out called the Magnet Comic. It's a three panel mini marker board with a magnetic backing so it can secure itself to a metal surface like a refrigerator or a file cabinet.

It has four character heads in a variety of facial expressions that can be interchanged and placed within the marker board frames. Users than then write their own captions and create their own dialogue between the characters.

He took it to Kickstarter to crowdfund the project looking to raise $6500.

He has 1,517 backers pledging $62,351 with 44 hours to go in the campaign.

That's more than most artists working for comic book companies make in a year I'd say.

Here's what it looks like...


Creative ingenuity oftentimes beats or at the very least supplements work for hire especially when it comes to the comics industry.
