I was going through some Kickstarter statistics on HALLOWEEN EVE. It’s not foolproof, but based on the gender of first names: more than 30% of current backers are female. This is a pretty cool number, I think. Amy & I have done most of our work for Marvel & DC, which has a female readership of under 10%.
Guys tend to pledge at the higher dollar amounts.
Gals account for nearly half (45%) of the backers for the “insider package” (which includes copies of production materials like the script and Amy’s rough layouts and designs). To me, that maybe shows there are a lot of Gals interested in making comics and/or are sophisticated fans of the medium.
