Archie Kills Kickstarter

Archie Comics had created a Kickstarter to solicit donations for as many as three new Archie titles but has since pulled the plug due to questions raised by would-be donators who asked why such a successful company would need to raise funds.

A spokesperson for the company said the decision was due to the fact that the Kickstarter campaign, originally meant to expedite these new titles, "[had become] another conversation" overshadowing the original purpose. At the time, nearly 65 contributors had helped raise over $34,000 for the project. Archie Comics said those contributors would receive thank you gifts.
