Comics By Request: People, Places In Need Of Funding

By Tom Spurgeon

image* count Ibrahim Ineke among those cartoonists relying in matter-of-fact way on their patreons.

* Carol Tyler reports the Patreon contributions are helping, and we should all hope to help the great Carol Tyler.

* the fundraiser for those sued for defamation by cartoonist/publisher Cody Pickrodt continues on. That situation curdles quickly if the money runs out, so consider a second throw-in or an initial one if you haven't done so. I would suppose the next major step is seeing if some of those involved can be removed from the case for not living and thus not doing enough business in New York.

* finally: Rich Tommaso's recently launched self-publishing style Patreon could use some attention. Rich is an influential alt-cartoonist with a fun, broad, pulp sensibility.
