Comics By Request: People, Places In Need Of Funding

By Tom Spurgeon

image* while it's Jack Kirby's 100th birthday, there's never any harm remembering a great living artist like Steve Ditko by donating to his admirably personal comics projects when they come up.

* 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.

* finally, I've seen no notices from Gilbert Hernandez at the time I'm writing this that indicate the L&R #1 and/or commissions offers have gone away.
