Welcome to the very first Kickstart the Week podcast! I’m your Comic Maven Nicole D’Andria, and I’ve done hundreds of text interviews with creators of crowdfunding projects, typically for comic books on Kickstarter. I feel very honored that my first guest is a fellow member of Comic Frontline, Brant Fowler. Brant is the publisher of Last Ember Press, and we are talking about his Kickstarter for The Last Ember: Hunted #1, which he not only wrote but also did the letters and the logo. The book is a coming of age superhero story about Ember Madison. Not only does she have to deal with the woes of being a teenager like bullies, but she also has to deal with her emerging fire powers and a serial killer. Full disclosure, I am the editor for this issue of The Last Ember, so I have already read the book, and I’m also one of its Kickstarter backers.
Thanks for listening to this little experiment of mine. Please let me know what you thought of the episode by mentioning me on your socials @Comic_Maven on Twitter.
