Comics By Request: People, Places In Need Of Funding

By Tom Spurgeon

* Rachel Richey has launched the second kickstarter designed to bring back to print a Canadian character of some historical import: this time it's Johnny Canuck.

* Dan Vado's gofundme campaging on behalf of his indy comics company SLG is ongoing.

image* still a bunch of days left on the successful crowd-funder related to the John Porcellino documentary. I imagine every last dime will be well spent, and it's hard for me to imagine a better cause in general within comics than whatever the hell John Porcellino wants to get involved doing.

* I believe the top offering at this Inprnt page for Lisa Hanawalt is new. This isn't tied into any specific need, but she did let people know about this one via Facebook.

* that fine writer about comics Chris Mautner passed along this crowd-funder from a co-worker. That one is doing just fine without any help from any of us over her at CR, but I certainly wanted to mention it.

* this Rick Geary fundraiser has met its initial goal; ditto this Steve Ditko-related campaign. Valerie D'Orazio and Bobby Timony have one going that should make its initial goal but hasn't yet. There's much more work to be done on Watson and Holmes Vol. 2.

* finally, it looks like we may be in the last stages of the art auctions on behalf of the cartoonist Stan Sakai and his wife Sharon. That's a wonderful thing that organization and its participating artists have done. We wish the Sakais every good thing.
