Okay, so, we’re trying to raise $7,000 for the Spring issue. That’s a lot of money! So, where is it going?
Well, let’s first talk about how much did this issue cost to put together?
- Cover Art: $1200 [Anton Oxenuk Cover + Genzoman Cover]
- Interior Art: $700 [3 illustrations from Dark Filly and 1 illustration from Zobert Zoltan]
- Fiction Content: $500
- Comic: $500 [rights and digital cleanup]
- Editing: $80
- Proofs: ~$100
- Contributor Copies: ~$70
So, that’s over $3,000 right there!
The rest is going towards fulfillment [~$10 per unit to print, ship and fulfill for softcovers]. We need to get about 300 backs. So, 6 times as many as we have now…
If you want Cirsova Magazine to keep on keeping on through 2021 and keep doing illustrations [something everyone has asked for but we’ve never done until now], then we REALLY NEED TO REACH OUR GOAL!
