amon will become famous soon enough

The argument certainly could be made that soliciting in Previews is akin to begging; and it often is vanity press, no question. In those regards, the two are very similar indeed. The differences come when, on Kickstarter, you're usually asked to pay a premium price for the product, higher than a feasible price point in Previews. Then there's no organizational support or guarantee you'll ever receive the product from Kickstarter (even if the promotion is funded), whereas Diamond offers some repercussions for perpetrators of vaporware.

Also, making comics involves pencils and paper. You want to do it, do it. There's no need to go begging for thousands of dollars.
