Mike S. Miller’s “Lonestar” comic crushes funding goal
Mike S. Miller is a 26-year veteran of the comics industry, having worked most recently as the artist in the Injustice video game tie-in books for DC Comics. Miller intends to use Lonestar as the cornerstone for launching a new comic universe he calls the “Blacklist Universe.”
Lonestar is the latest crowdfunding success story for a movement that has come to be known as “Comicsgate“, a group of comic book creators and consumers disillusioned with plummeting comics shop sales and concerns of political/ideological encroachment into the professional practices of the comics industry. As a result, several comic book professionals including both freshman creators and seasoned veterans have turned to crowdfunding to market directly to their audience.
