By Request Extra: Typhoon Charity, Fantagraphics Updates
* the Fantagraphics crowd-funder is at 125 percent with two weeks left; it looks like they've added a metric ton of prints and the like to the offerings, although I got a little lost myself when I was poking around there -- so much material -- so I can't say for sure what was added and when. Fantagraphics is a virtuous company with 35 years of displayed excellence under its belt; I strongly recommend participation.
* lots of newly-listed material seems to be showing up every day at Rina Ayuyang's art and comics auctions for Philippines typhoon relief. I've already been outbid for something I had my eye on (I'll likely jump back in), and that Michael DeForge set must contain some rarities for the bundled to rage to that price-point this quickly. I still remain jealous of the person that ends up with that Zettwoch. Anyway: nice lady, nice cartoonists, nice items, nice cause.
