Comics By Request: People, Places In Need Of Funding

By Tom Spurgeon

* two projects big enough they got their own posts were launched last week: a gofundme campaign for SLG Publishing; a fund-raiser related to the late Dave Cockrum's The Futurians project. They continue and I hope you'll check out both.

image* here's one I hadn't noticed: my peer Henry Chamberlain, who also makes comics, has a gofundme thing going. I hope that this will attract the attention of at least a few of the other writers about comics and that they'll attempt a small donation.

* last few hours on the Hunt Emerson-related crowd-funder.

* here's one that was sent along to me that looks to be in the fleshy middle of its crowd-funding journey: a collection of DA Bishop's Stranger.

* last few hours on Cringe.

* I don't see a lot of cons crowd-funding and I'm not sure I've ever seen one of the local library-hosted pop-up cons go down that road, so this one from Pennsylvania stood out.

* this Juan Navarro fundraiser has already raced past its goal, but there's plenty of time to participate.

* this P. Craig Russell crowd-funder has surged past the important halfway point.

* finally, this animated project that would have employed the talents of that fine cartoonist Pat Moriarity, well, it doesn't look to have ever gained that initial burst of attention and subsequent traction.
