I'm planning on doing three separate Kickstarter campaigns for each of the three issues of my comic book. Depending on how much interest I can build after the completion of the third, I can easily see myself doing a fourth Kickstarter to do a trade paperback.

I don't think there's anything wrong with using KS for the trade just because the content had previously been published before.
The most amazing thing about this is that Aaron Diaz got thousands of people to pay $10-20 for what essentially they're getting from his website for free.

Absolute genius.
