Comics By Request: People, Places In Need Of Funding

By Tom Spurgeon

image* here is today's reminder that Marc Arsenault could use a hand due to business disruption caused by a sudden, severe health matter.

* from Jillian Tamaki comes word about the building that hosts Koyama Press and a bunch of other artists and their support frameworks may be lost to those arts-related tenants due to the appeal of making more public money from the property. That's a terrible thing to happen to a city with a vital arts scene, and it happens everywhere. It looks like anyone from anywhere can sign this petition.

* here are some of the people whose projects on Kickstarter caught my attention this week: Ally Shwed, Ursula Murray Husted, Hope Nicholson, Beehive Books, Kel McDonald and these nice folks. I imagine there are more.

* finally: I'm usually less familiar with IndieGoGo artists and comics-makers than I am with their equivalents on Kickstarter. No Idea why that is. However, I'm familiar with JT Yost, and this project looks like one readers of this site might want to know exists.
