April 28,2011 - Mark Andrew Smith lives and teaches English in Taiwain, but over the past few years he's amassed a number of credits and accolades in the comics industry. He co-created the Eisner Award winning Popgun anthology series and developed a number of creator-owned works through Image Comics. 2011 sees the debut of a new all-ages ongoing called Gladstone's School for World Conquerors as well as a second volume of his celebrated New Brighton Archaeological Society. Mark talks to us about the perils and pitfalls of producing all-ages work and discusses both failures and successes in crowdsourcing through Kickstarter. How do you make such fundraising websites work for you, and what does it all mean for the industry?
