I was a huge supporter of Nonplayer when it came out. Enough that I even tracked down Nate Simpson to do an interview with him on a site I used to work for (search Talking 'Nonplayer' with Nate Simpson to read the article). The thing is that the second issue became terribly delayed and then Simpson was in an accident. Still not a lot of details on that and how it actually effected the book, but it's his personal life so we'll respect that. It didn't stop Hollywood from optioning the movie right though.
Now, Simpson has announced on his blog that he's working out the details to take the project to Kickstarter. The problem I have is that based on what he's saying the project has suddenly gotten much bigger, decades bigger in fact. When I interviewed him the series was supposed to be self contained and range from six to seven issue. Now he's talking about hardcover for ever two issues and that if he were to quit his job he'd need to make up a ton of money. I guess Hollywood options don't go as far as they once did huh?
