Comics By Request -- People, Projects In Need Of Funding

By Tom Spurgeon

image* I've mentioned this before a couple of times, but Jess Johnson is selling Jeff Johnson-era, mid-1990s comics art at really cheap prices to meet some financial obligations. I never buy comics art, and I bought a page of this stuff. I also already own one from this era, a page from a story that appeared in Buzzard. So I can attest to how pretty these pages are.

* veteran cartoonist Jim Lawson has a Kickstarter up that's about as close as I've seen to a pure pre-order. And here's a kickstarter that has a way to go and a while to get there. Rick Stromoski is closing in on another Soup To Nuts-related crowd-funder.

* the family of this young Captain America fan could use help with costs of his funeral.

* here's an already-funded kickstarter that still has miles to go before it stops taking funding.

* I'm linking this up several days ahead of it rolling out, so I bet this is resolved in terms of the immediate drama, but Corey Pandolph was selling rejected New Yorker cartoons to free his car.

* finally, it's not comics, but please support Ralph Bakshi's animated project if you're so inclined, or I'll never hear the end of it.
