"Herman the Heathen-the guy raked in millions on kickstarter"
"Tidningsdöden killed Herman the Heathen."
"Then got the fans in and now have the creator Jonas Darnells kickstarterkampanj pulled in over 1.5 million."
"– I started to think that, perhaps, is actually possible, " says the artist."
"Kultfiguren Herman a Pagan, threatened to go to the grave after the publisher Egmont after 20 years, decided to stop giving out the newspaper. "
"In the very last number, which was titled ”judgement day”, chose the creator Jonas Darnell and with the demise of the beloved character, but now, fans have managed to do artificial respiration on the small grottmannen."
"– It is so damn funny, " says an excited Jonas Darnell."
"While the publisher argued that the magazine sold poorly was the artist convinced myself that the interest is still there among the readers and he decided to take matters into their own hands."
"He started up a kickstarterkampanj and set the goal of 100 000 sek. Then he would have advice to give out in all cases, a number of the magazine."
"”All, perhaps, is actually possible?”"
"Already after the first day, the goal was achieved and on Monday completed the collection."
"Jonas Darnell was the least surprised when he saw the final result: 1 676 000 sek."
" In my wettest dreams I had hoped to get in maybe 300 000 sek. Then pulled it in the road and I started to think that perhaps, actually is possible?"
"Miljonbeloppet makes the campaign the second most successful Swedish kickstartern through the ages. "
"the Top position is held by the Apart publishers and their release of the series Valhalla. "
"– It is a series. It is the future, " he says, laughing."
"”Thought hiding in Belgium and drink beer”"
"What do you do when you suddenly have over a million and a half in the pocket? Jonas Darnells spontaneous thought was to flee the country."
"– A thought was to buy a Tesla, hide me in Belgium and drink beer, but it is also not sustainable, " he says jokingly, and the money will obviously go to the press new magazines."
"the Next step to be able to continue to keep the series alive is to try to make up the sales figures even further."
"– Before it was shut down, sold every number of 5 000-6 000 copies. One number costs just over 150 000 pressing up, and if we get up the number of subscribers to 3 000, we are at the break-even point in any case."
"sign until he dies."
"you Ask Jonas Darnell teaches, therefore, Mr Pagan, hang around for a while. In any case, if he gets to decide."
"– He will die with me. I will probably continue to subscribe until I lose the vision or will for the old man to keep in the pen. But the readers may decide. They may tell me when it is time to go home."
