* this successful workshop fundraiser will be gone by next week's column. I am all about successful crowd-funders that aren't straight-up publishing projects. They're still rare.
* it's great to see this kickstarter featuring Walt Simonson and the late Sam Glanzman meeting its initial goal. Ditto this book of criticism featuring younger and newer critics edited by Zainab Akhtar.
* the planned parenthood crowd-funder is well past the halfway point on its initial ask and should make it to where it needs to go. I don't want to dissuade anyone from helping out. That's one where you might just send something non-reward oriented.
