* the cartoonist Noah Van Sciver has ended his Fante Bukowksi, a well-received tumblr-based serial.

* this Drive! original is going to the fundraising efforts related to cartoonist Richard Thompson; both the artist and the writer-about-comics Gary Tyrrell will provide a matching donation.

* we paid more attention to this early on, but the Meredith Gran Patreon campaign settled in at about $1750 a month. I'm sure a lot of people will be trying these in the weeks ahead -- Heidi MacDonald announced her intention to do one related to her web-based magazine The Beat at a HeroesCon panel last weekend. How they're used should be interesting.

* finally, the site The Outhousers has launched a column devoted to covering Kickstarter campaigns. I know that's a focused area of interest for the writer Christian Hoffer, so the result is bound to be interesting.
