Comics Creators: Kickstarter Union Puts ACTIVISM Over PROFITS?


Comics book creators take note: Kickstarter employees have voted to unionize, but it’s not simply because of better working conditions. Thanks to a controversial comic book funding campaign, Kickstarter employees now want the ability to help dictate the kinds of projects the company allows to be funded on the platform and they’ve said as much. It shouldn’t be all that surprising, as Kickstarter itself re-incorporated in 2015 to be a “Public Benefit Corporation” and not a for profit company. This is important when understanding what is going on with comic book crowdfunding today, and why some campaigns — like “Jawbreakers” — were cancelled with little or no explanation.
