Comics By Request: People, Places In Need Of Funding

By Tom Spurgeon

image* just wanting to keep hitting the "send" button on this Jim Wheelock fundraiser. One of the futures I can see is dozens of crowd-funders for talented people that didn't work in comics long enough or perhaps didn't forge a relationship with a popular character.

* still a bit confused by the general donation/specific donation nature of this ask, but I will keep driving attention to it for as long as I'm able and/or convinced otherwise.

* last few days for a creative project we've looked in on several times.

* a person direct-texted me via twitter to promote their crowd-funder so I figure it must be important in some way or we have a prior relationship. If I look when I have time later and it's just another kickstarter, my apologies.

* finally: the Cooksey family could use a hand. This kind of unfortunate circumstance crowd-funder isn't something you see a whole lot of in comics, where I'm guessing a lot of people are living in close proximity to this sort of need. Still, need is need.
