June Feature #5: Crowdfunding Roundup, Slice of Life

Kevin Featured Comics • Jun 17, 2021

 

Today's feature highlights comics that have active crowdfunding campaigns. Since we typically feature five comics at a time, we're also featuring a selection of comics from the Slice of Life genre to cap things off.

For creators that would like to have their comics included in the crowdfunding roundup, you'll want to use our crowdfinder tool to make sure it's listed as active. @EricTapper created a great video that walks you through the steps to make that happen. You can watch it here.
