Interview: Greg Rucka on Kickstarter and Lazarus
The multiple Eisner-award winning writer of Detective Comics, Wonder Woman, and Queen & Country talks about Lady Sabre and Lazarus!
Two years ago, fan-favorite novelist/comic book writer Greg Rucka decided to try something new. He embarked on a webcomic with artist Rick Burchett entitled Lady Sabre & the Pirates of the Ineffable Aether. It’s a sublime title to go along with the high-adventure steampunk nature of the webcomic. Recently, with the webcomic still running, Rucka, Burchett, and editor Eric Newsom took to crowdfunding site Kickstarter in order to raise funds for a printed hardcover collection the first five chapters of Lady Sabre. The campaign needed $27,500 in thirty days to succeed; it reached that goal within several hours, and has raised over $100,000 with one week left to go. Rucka has also been busy working on a new creator-owned comic called Lazarus, which reunites him with former Gotham Central collaborator Michael Lark. A look at a future dystopia and the class struggles therein, Lazarus is due out June 26 from Image Comics. Rucka recently took a seat in The Outhouse to talk about his current work, crowdfunding comics, and why going out to dinner has been so important for his career.
