Becky Cloonan runs her own crowdfunding project for <i>The Mire</i>

Last year Becky Cloonan self-published a well-received minicomic called Wolves, which she sold at conventions and via her Big Cartel site. Now she’s publishing another self-published minicomic called The Mire, which she is now accepting pre-orders for and, like folks do on Kickstarter, she’s offering extra incentives for additional funds.

“I’m doing what so many others have done through Kickstarter and other fundraising sites- try to raise money to print in large quantities, except I’m cutting out the middle-man,” she said on her blog. She added that Wolves has sold about 3,000 copies total, and she plans to do a third printing of it along with the initial printing of The Mire — about 5,000 copies between the two.

“I don’t skimp on printing either. Each book has heavy interior paper, plus a silk-screened cover on colored card stock,” she said. “Pre-ordering will help me estimate how many I’ll need to print as well. All in all a logical decision!”

The comic can be bought for $5, and for an extra $20 she’ll add a random sketch of one of the characters in it. Here’s a description of the book: “The much anticipated follow-up to 2011’s WOLVES, THE MIRE is a self-contained story set on the eve of battle, when a humble squire is given the task of delivering a letter to a decomposing castle in a swamp. Met with mysterious apparitions, he slowly unveils the truth about why he was sent there, as his past is re-written over the course of twenty two pages.”
