Comics By Request: People, Projects In Need Of Funding

imageBy Tom Spurgeon

* it's the last few days for the IndieGoGo effort spearheaded by Sequential Artists Workshop. That money will be judiciously spent, and there are several cool-looking incentives like the Vanessa Davis print/poster at left.

* the Stan Sakai fundraising efforts remain ongoing. I hope people will continue to pay attention to this one because I don't think that need is going to go away as quickly as we're able to match it.

* Dean Trippe's Something Terrible crowd-funding effort continues to return value to its participants well over the original asked-for amount. Those are hardcovers now, for instance.

* here's a comics anthology project that's started up its crowd-funder: Maple Key Comics. MOME and the Oily Comics effort are cited in a run of approximate models.

* finally, the Clydene Nee fundraiser looks to be slowing down a bit, but it's at 8X the original, requested amount. I'm sure any and all money could be put to good use if you've ever benefited from Nee's comics-related volunteer work on behalf of artists.
