These are the titles driving Kickstarter comics to their biggest year yet

Although we’re just halfway through 2021, Kickstarter is reporting that the crowdfunded comics on their platform have already amassed $16.6 million in pledges. 

That’s good news, as it almost beats Kickstarter comics’ entire 2019 ($16.9m), and is well ahead of its revenue for the first six months of 2020. If this trend continues, it would break the $25.7m record set in 2020 – possibly even getting at or above an even $30m.

Another key indicator here is not only are Kickstarter comics as a category raising more funds, but these comics crowdfunding campaigns have had a higher success rate than ever – as in successfully meeting or exceeding their Kickstarter goal. So far in 2021, comic-centric Kickstarter projects have had a 76.3% success rate – that’s more than double the rate for the average Kickstarter. But even comparing it against previous years’ comics success rates, it’s up – 2.4% over 2020, 6.3% over 2019, and almost a 20% higher success rate than in 2016.
