Two years ago Rucka and Burchett teamed-up to create a steampunk-adventure webcomic, Lady Sabre & the Pirates of the Ineffable Aether, which has been enormously popular. A few weeks ago they launched a Kickstarter project with a goal of raising $27,500 to bring the series out in print; they met that goal within just eight hours of opening the campaign. With eight days to go until their June 5th closing, they now have over 2,000 backers who've pledged just shy of $100K.
Greg Rucka has been an active Kickstarter participant for over two years.... according to his Kickstarter profile he has backed twenty-six projects since joining in March 2011. Now he's on the other side as a creator.

Update at project close: The project closed today, June 5th, with 2,901 backers committing just over $143K.
