Comics By Request: People, Places In Need Of Funding

By Tom Spurgeon

image* Katie Skelly is heading into the last several days of her tarot deck crowd-funder, looking to surpass a goal at which point everyone gets a Zodiac print. That's Leo to the left. Skelly is a prolific enough cartoonist that success with crowd-funding could drastically change how she approaches projects in general.

* Richard Sala does his part for a newsstand in Oakland.

* here's a campaign I totally missed to provide the writers Leah Moore and John Reppion some assistance through rough times, times that have come in the context of the generally low pay upon which the makers of comics depend.

* if you like your comics in the 1980s/1990s tradition of creator-driven genre material, there is collected Aztec Ace and new Scout.

* finally: it's always nice to see a cartoonist or comics-maker doing a charitable item just for the general good of that kind of work.
