A poll for you!

I have this original comic book I'm developing, right? Here's the premise, if you're just joining us:
Assassins Anonymous tells the story of a group of retired assassins, bound together by their participation in a support group designed to keep them from relapsing into their murderous lifestyles- which, of course, keep coming back to bite them. The story is primarily character-driven with an ensemble cast, made up of various kinds of killers-for-hire: poisoners, weapons experts, killing machines, and the like. Much of the focus is on their everyday lives as they try to stay clean, which is not helped by the way that certain events and people seem to be conspiring against them.

You can also find more information at the tumblr, for all your tumblr needs.

So here's the thing: I've always intended to do a kickstarter for Assassins Anonymous. Originally the idea was to do it to get the first issue printed, but the problem is that I can't find an artist, not one who will commit to working on the comic for free. The new plan is to run a kickstarter to pay an artist to get the comic made. And to that end, I ask for your input!

ETA: For reference, some of the things I'm considering for the rewards include putting backers on special pages of honor, written-to-order short stories, a special (prob digital) book with character backstories etc., just what have you.

Personally, I'd rather see an artist name. Mostly because it shows the writer and artist have agreed about the budget so the writer doesn't fund the kickstarter then try to find an artist who will work for the amount of money offered (and can work with the writer and is interested in the project enough to do their job).

I don't particularly care who it is, but it shows a level of planning which is pretty important to me when funding things: I want to know that the people involved with the KS know how much money they need and why. Even if it's just a statement of 'Jane Doe (website link) has agreed to do this if we get funded' without showing any work of hers, it lets me know there is probably a plan and a budget and everyone will get paid and I'll eventually get a comic book.

I don't know if she'd accept, but have you tried asking sailorptah (her dw username - bloody mobile won't let me html code)? Her work is quite fun & awesome - a bit anime-like at times (my icon is one example) but ymmv - and she's done a few of her own (web)comics, both fannish and original. I think you can see her work at deviantArt but I can't remember her dA handle offhand.
