Learn firsthand exactly what it takes to run a successfully crowdfunded Kickstarter campaign—specifically emphasizing those projects in the Comics category—from Heather Antos, the editor behind Marvel comic hits like Star Wars: Doctor Aphra and Gwenpool, who Kickstarted her comics career on the “Creators First” platform.

Having worked as an Editor at Marvel, primarily on the Star Wars and Deadpool lines, as well as being one of the creators of breakout character Gwenpool, she now spends her days as a freelance comics editor and story consultant on titles like Redlands and Injection for Image.
