Comics By Request: People, Places In Need Of Funding

By Tom Spurgeon

image* I'm kind of lost on the titles here: I think it's Secret Prison #8 which is GLUT, but it's kind of lost on me as to what is the subordinate title to what. Still, cartoonists like Anya Davidson being involved means this one should get a long look from just about everybody.

* Indiegogo seems to me a weird bunch of projects that raise like $35 and a bunch of modern American conservative comics that raise like $300K. I certainly couldn't find anything I'd like to own. Maybe this one, about a trip to Iceland? Yeah, that one looks pretty good.

* the only recently active comics-related gofundme campaigns I can see from looking at a whole bunch on a search is one from a teacher raising money for comics-interested students, and one to defray costs for a Texas comics widow.

* this is the second to last column I'll get to mention that The Nib is raising money for a print magazine version.

* here's another one that makes me suspect I'm not seeing a lot of what's up on these sites, as they favor the mega-successful listings over the merely successful ones.

* finally: there are a lot of interesting creators contributing to Heartwood, an anthology for non-binary creators and characters.
