Kickstarter and Crowd-Funded Indies

Stepping away from mainstream and even established indie companies and writers, have any of you ever help to crowd-fund an individual comic project? What was the experience like? Was it delivered on time? And good?

I've never helped to fund a comic, but in the board game world this practice is becoming increasingly common. In the past I've backed a handful of gaming projects, with mixed - though mostly positive - results.

The impetus for this thread is a local friend who co-wrote a comic that just launched on Kickstarter. I don't know a ton about it, though it seems interesting, and I'm on a spending hiatus that will prevent me from backing. But it occurred to me that I don't see many such threads on this board. It's very much a two-party system, whereas other industries (again, using board games as an example) will have message boards filled with creators announcing their projects.

I have another friend who managed to find an established publisher for his one-off graphic novel, An Elegy for Amelia Johnson. Not quite the same as crowd-funding, but similarly "super indie." It wasn't anything resembling superhero fare. I enjoyed it, but it probably works best as a YA graphic novel, as it's overtly sentimental.

The whole enterprise doesn't seem especially lucrative; it was the only one he wrote and I don't believe he has plans for another. And I know board game creators with multiple successful Kickstarters, but who still have day jobs. But I suppose it's cool to see your work in print.

Anyway, other stories? Good reads you found through such methods?
