Kickstarter Advice

Hello, my little comic book I've been working on for years, Midnight's Masque, is finally ready for printing. I'm going to bundle the first five issues into a trade paperback. I'd like to run a Kickstarter campaign to help cover the production costs, pave the way for the next five issues, and ultimately generate some social media marketing buzz. I know the mechanics of KS, but I am curious what you all think makes a good comic book campaign. What factors tip you from browsing to pledging? Is it things like rewards and stretch goals, or is it simply a killer video that lures you in?

Any nuggets of knowledge and opinion are welcome.

Keep it simple.
Easy fulfillment rewards.
Offer loads of extra content.

Thanks, Paul! That seems inline with advice I've received from others. Don't overreach!
