By Request Extra: Doug Wright Awards Crowd-Funder Going
A kickstarter campaign for the Doug Wright Awards demands a mention before this column's usual Monday appearance because the incentives involve a lot of original art, each sample of which is gone the second someone makes that particular choice. It's also a small institution that has a track record of doing what they're asking for help to do, so there's reason to have confidence the money will be well spent. I don't want to make a big deal about any awards program, but I think that one has done a pretty good job of having a specific character year to year and fostering a greater for those work within the wider comics culture. I like how specific the amount asked for is, too.
