Icarus And The Sun Becomes the Third-Highest Crowdfunded Comic Of All Time

Icarus And The Sun Becomes the Third-Highest Crowdfunded Comic Of All Time

Posted by April 8, 2019 Comment

Gabriel Picolo is a Brazilian artist, best known for his Teen Titans fan art. And for putting out illustrations for something called Icarus And The Sun, which grew from a single illustration based on the Greek myth. A 65 page comic, he looked to crowdfund a collection on IndieGogo, asking for $20,000.

He got a lot more, almost $600,000 in total from 16,377 backers, almost 3000% his original asking amount. It’s not the most ever raised on crowdfunding for a comic. But it’s the third most.

On Kickstarter, The Order Of The Stick Reprint raised $1,254,120 pledged of a $57,750 goal from 14,952 backers. The three-volume CTRL-Alt-Del boxset raised $665,725 pledged of $150,000 goal from 5,553.

Of course Icarus And The Sun had more backers than both. And it is the most money ever raised for a comic on IndieGogo as well.

Congratulations, Gabriel. Here’s a look at what those 16,377 folk will be receiving soon… hopefully.

Say, maybe DC Comics should look at making those Teen Titans fan art illustrations official?
