And you had to sign before the kickstarter launched. The minimum was $5k, anon. If you get a third of that for a 44-page comic, that's $37/page.
So, a manga artist can get one page done in four hours to make the brutal Shonen Jump grind. Assuming an artist can make something for D&C at that speed by themselves and in color, that's 176 hours.
If you make ~$1275 for 176 hours of work, you could be making more money flipping burgers. If you live in, say, Boston, where the state minimum wage is $11/hr, you'd need $1,936 to beat McDonalds, which if you're making a third of the revenue means the kickstarter needs to make $5808. Which is reasonable.
Except, oh wait, this needs to be in color, which is another hour or so of work per page. That's 5/hours a page, or 220 hours in total. That means you need $2,420 to beat burger-flipping, so if you're getting a third the comic has to make $7,260. That's way more than the minimum, but still not too absurd since D&C is popular, but now you've got the risk of it only barely making $5k, and then you're boned. But, whatever, you're a risk taker. You can work as hard as a manga artist, making all those pages by themselves.
No, wait, hold on. Manga artists have 5-6 assistants to help them churn out pages that fast. Fuck. Okay. That's fine. A high-quality webcomic artist like Pic Related who's doing the comic as their main profession can do 3 pages a week, and they build a buffer. You can do a page in 10 hours, easy. 440 hours to make the whole book. That seems reasonable for one person. Let's tell D&C it'll take 3 months, just to be safe. 12 weeks. That's 480 hours, so we need our third to be $5280 to beat McDonald's wages. Wait, shit, our third has to be more than the minimum for the whole comic!
And, yes, if you'd taken the bet you'd have come out on top, but there's no way to know that would happen in advance with enough confidence to risk committing to spending 3 months doing nothing but drawing for peanuts
