Comics By Request: People, Places In Need Of Funding

imageBy Tom Spurgeon

* the Hero Initiative is about to start one of their cover-art auctions, this time with an X-Men theme. A lot of fun artists are represented, like John Cassaday.

* here are two crowd-funders that crushed it immediately, and have a few weeks to pile on with the rewards an incentives and stretch goals: Erika Moen and Molly Ostertag.

* it was Stan Sakai's birthday yesterday, a fine time to be reminded about the ongoing auction and the direct-pay option to help out this pro's pro in a period of discombobulation brought on by a health crisis suffered within the family. You will not spend better money all year. If you're super-rich and stuck in terms of how to spend that money in Sakai's direction, someone's selling an original Opper.

* winding down on the Cerebus related one. I'm still not sure I all the way understand it, but it looks like it's done well and I think crowd-funding is a great option for Sim given his fervent fan base.

* still a few days left on this Ant Sang project.

* one of my favorite thing to encounter on these sites is the occasional Steve Ditko project -- always modestly priced. That Ditko makes so much personal work now is a great thing, really.

* finally, you have a few more days to get onto Ryan Andrews' project here; it's more than made its goal.
