How Alton Simpson Got His Comics Into Shops and Raised More than $150,000 on Kickstarter

by Clay Adams

This month, I talk to Alton Simpson, a writer, director, actor, editor, composer, producer, and media creator who started making short films in 2004 with his company 3 Heads Productions. He’s produced commercials that have run on Comcast as well as short films for the Philadelphia and New York City 48 Hour Film Festival. In 2010, he wrote, produced, and scored his first full length film which played in the Philadelphia Independent Film Festival, and now his films can be seen on Amazon Prime. His music has been used in commercials for Youtube Content and Comcast TV Commercials and has been streamed over 1 million times. He writes the ongoing comic and graphic novel “Vampires of New Jersey” as well as the shared universe titles Blackjack, Werewolves of Brooklyn, Witches of Westchester and Bunny Goes to Space. Over ten campaigns, Alton has raised over $150,000 in crowdfunding.

In this edition of the ComixLaunch Spotlight, you'll learn:

  • "long tail" strategies for sales outside of Kickstarter
  • why negative feedback can be just as important as positive reinforcement
  • plus: how to get your comics into shops without going through Diamond
