Comics By Request: People, Places In Need Of Funding

By Tom Spurgeon

image* here's a thank you from Jillian Kirby on behalf of the Kirby Family to those that gave money and time/effort that could be converted to money to/for the Hero Initiative on the occasion of what would have been Jack Kirby's 97th birthday. Speaking of which, I barely mentioned this on here and should have provided more coverage, but I thought it was admirable of Nix Comix to divert any money received during August to the Kirby-related charities.

* Seth Kushner's campaign is at about the halfway point in terms of the money they've been shooting for. Kushner is a photographer and comics-maker well-liked in the NYC comics community. Please consider giving.

* a film about Chris Knox is in the midst of raising the same $50K figure.

* some already-successful crowd-funders still live that we've covered in past columns: Nate McDonough, Joe Sinnott.

* this crowd-funder for two books in the AJALA series looks like it could use some help going into its final hours.

* as far as I know, you can still give to Dan Vado and SLG.

* finally, remember that Gabrielle Bell is selling her July Diary comics through eBay this year. Her originals are really nice-looking, and in many cases are self-contained in terms of the narrative.
