How's it going?!
September looks pretty sexy
Hey, gang! Mike Tener, Creative Director of Bad Bug, is here with a general update on Bad Bug Media.
We enjoyed seeing so many of you at Baltimore Comic Con! It was a successful show for us so we plan to return next year. Shout out to Fletcher and Derek: they’ve been supporting comics on Kickstarter for a while now - one was up to 700 KS projects backed, I think. Whew!
Look at their AWESOME shirts featuring the characters from their first comic that’s coming out soon.
We’ve been really fortunate this year. You all have invested in us even when we make mistakes and have shown great patience when some projects are delayed.
The process of learning how to run a business, lead multiple projects simultaneously, and coordinate fulfillment for those projects was a new challenge. All of us at Bad Bug did this in between our full-time jobs. This is a fun gig but it’s also exhausting at times.
I want to thank you all for being so understanding and forgiving. We now have a team (5 people) who will be knocking out campaign fulfillment on the weekends so rewards deliver faster and, in turn, campaigns can launch quicker…end result? More Bad Bug, baby!
Speaking of more Bad Bug, here’s what we have for September:
Check out this trailer for Cereal Killer by our friend Jared Matthew Dawe.
