Comics By Request: People, Places In Need Of Funding

By Tom Spurgeon

* the wife of artist Mike DeCarlo was struck by a car and thus that family could use help.

image* the Retrofit crowd-funder could probably use the most attention right now. Not getting to their halfway point with fewer than ten days left would be a rough position to make a last-minute rush at their initial goal. There is a ton of potentially good work in there, including must-haves from favorites of mine like Summer Pierre, Warren Craghead and Karl Stevens. While the ask is a large one, it breaks down to about $3K-$4K for each individual artist to send their way, which isn't out-of-bounds. It could be a combination that the full ask is more than $50 and the individual asks involve some math, but I can't say that for sure.

* cartoonist Julia Kaye is raising money for Facial Feminization Surgery.

* stumbled across this random crowd-funder where the comic seemed interesting to me.

* finally: congratulations to Ken Eppstein and Nix Comics on making their initial ask
