Comic book artist Joe Kubert, who started a New Jersey school of cartooning that cemented his legacy as an industry great, has died, his son David Kubert confirms. He was 85.

More here and here.

I have a few friends who went to the Joe Kubert school who've been posting about this today. This is sad news indeed.  :(

The Tavern / 5 Kickstarter Projects Slammed with Success

Kickstarter can be a blessing to artists and entrepreneurs—sometimes too much of a blessing. Earlier this year, a slew of crowd-funded projects received money that was an order of magnitude more than requested. Such windfalls can turn a dream into a nightmare: They often bury ill-prepared creators and lead to manufacturing delays, lawsuits, defective products, and irate backers. Here are a few projects that got slammed with excess success.

An interesting little list of some of the Kickstarter campaigns that have been overwhelmed by the amount of backers. One of the most common responses I see from people who have run them is an amount of surprise from how long it takes to fill pledges. This is especially true for projects that double, triple, or otherwise vastly surpass their goal. I can't even imagine starting up a project to print 5,000 books and instead getting orders for over 100,000!
