Comic Artist Raises $50K for Books, Then Just Burns Them


A comic artist in Chicago who raised over $50,000 on Kickstarter to publish and ship hardback books has decided to torch the product for which donors paid.

Though John Campbell says he was able to send a good number of them, he posted a rambling 4,500-word note on Kickstarter in late February that claims he ran out of money. Campbell’s note is accompanied by a video that shows a flaming heap of paper, presumably the remains of over 100 copies of the book that is based on his online comic series, called “Pictures for Sad Children.”
