Producer’s notes: I know that Kicktstarter and IndieGoGo are both viable options for crowdfunding. They both have different options, pros and cons; however, Kickstarter is only for USA residents. I am personally unfamiliar with GoFundMe.

Carreon Takes Credit for Raising Money for Charity Descripton:
Carreon’s quote from the Digital Life Article: “While it’s not the largest sum of money I have ever had a substantial role in raising,” he wrote to me, referencing the $211,223.04 collected by Inman’s fundraiser, “it is the first time I’ve seen it go to charity, and I think it’s great.” Original Source: Digital Life
If you had no heard, Marcus discovered he had cancer, and presently going through chemo. Thus the reason for the delay in updates. But he’s doing better after the surgery, and we will start scheduling episode recordings around his schedule. We will also look into having guest reviewers as well.
Remember that we abridge the comics we review, and the show is by no means a substitute for reading it yourself. If any comics we review pique your interest, there are MANY places to pick these up! We highly recommend you check out your local comic book shop first, as that is the BEST experience for reading comic books. Otherwise there are many sources online to read and buy comic books in a digital format: Marvel Digital Comics, Dark Horse Digital, IDW, DC Comics, Image and more on Comixology, Drive-Thru Comics, and Graphicly.
Do know that while this show is also available as a podcast, you miss out if you don’t watch the video!
