Just to check that I am not being a total censored but if you do not reach your funding goal then no one pays any money

That's how it works yea - so I will revert to paying myself to get it printed, or look to get paid adverts outside of the IndieGOGO campaign.

That's awesome news Chris. Obviously, with a new mag / mags in the pipeline, it must only be a matter of time before a new retro fusion event........ ;-)

Ok, now I could be missing something here, but you want $6,000 to help fund the next 3 issues, right? As you say (and I don't dispute) the biggest cost is printing -fair enough.

So why are you are only offering a total of 21 printed copies as perks (of only one issue, despite wanting funding for 3)? To me that makes it look like you want people to fund a magazine they would then have to pay again for to get a hard copy - and also means that all bar 21 hard copies you sell would be pure profit (however that is distributed).

So am I missing something here?

Hi Gabe,

Good feedback m8 - I have changed the first perk to $5 for a digital copy and then $10 for a printed first issue. Let me know what you think.

I have a printed copy of Issue 0 here with signatures of those who attended The Retro Ball, even the late Richard Joseph. Do you think this would make a good perk?

Looks smart Chris ;)

But shouldn't the word "Space 1999" perspective be facing in the opposite position in the heading?

Talking to a Marketing Director in a big games company at the moment - interested to know more about the magazine.

Also meeting up with David Perry next month to discuss the mag - he is over from the States.
