Comics By Request: People, Places In Need Of Funding

By Tom Spurgeon

image* I had the wrong link up for Steve Hamaker's second PLOX volume. Here's the right one. It's been corrected in the previous post. I hope Steve will forgive me and you will consider planting yourself somewhere in that rare Venn diagram for comics about gaming culture and comics about Columbus, Ohio.

* a fundraiser to print the late Mark Campos' last, semi-abortive at the printing and distribution phase work, Casino Sono and get it back out there is nearing its initial goal.

* does anyone else get the feeling that a recent adjustment in how content is presented at Kickstarter favors successful projects on the immediately searchable pages? I hope that's not the case. I mean, I would get the impulse, it's college graduation rates and how those are used, but it makes it hard for old-timey search and link people to get projects in need unless they come over the social media transom.

* here are some names I recognize with crowd-funding projects: Ally Shwed, Greg Baisden, Vera Greentea, Birdcage Bottom Books, Ron Marz and NYC Queer Comic Fair.

* finally: looks like the sale is still on at Spit And A Half.
