I interview The Sun Brothers, Brad and Wesley Sun, of the Chicago-based Sun Bros Studios. After running a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2012 to fund their first graphic novel Chinatown, they followed-up in 2013 with Apocalypse Man, their interpretation of a zombie horror survival story. In 2014 they are setting the stage with a follow-up Kickstarter campaign for their new graphic novel Monkey Fist, which is inspired by the classic Monkey King story.
In this interview, we discuss how Sun Bros Studios got started, why they chose Kickstarter as their funding platform, how they approach the creative process for their stories, and tips on how other graphic novelists can successfully fund their own Kickstarter projects.
